Arvind, India’s leading denim firm, has installed the nation’s first Eco Line denim finishing range by Monforts, a leader among the manufacturer of textile machines, for faster production, major savings in energy, and greater flexibility in design and innovation at the company’s Ahmedabad mill. Arvind is rated in the top three denim producers in the world.

The installation has been made to increase production, reduce energy usage, and respond more quickly to customer requests for specified designs and finishes. The Eco Line, which can handle fabric widths of 1800 millimetres and operates at high speeds of up to 80 m/min, is operating alongside four Montex foam finishing stenters, which are also able to handle this same width of material.

The Eco Line was manufactured in Monforts production facility ‘MONTEX’ in Austria and installed by Monforts’ representive in India, ATE Enterprises Private Ltd.

Aamir Akhtar, chief executive officer of Arvind Lifestyle Fabrics’ Denim division said, “Arvind stays ahead of its competition through a policy of design and innovation. For all this, we need the best in technology. Having been a Monforts user from the earliest days, we had no hesitation in investing in the new Eco Line. Not only does this make us even more responsive to customer needs and demands, and more creative in our design and production, there is also the very great energy saving advantage and tight control over emissions.”

C V Babu, ATE’s general manager for sales at the company’s Ahmedabad office, said “The Eco Line system reduces energy losses and energy use, increases thermal transfer and keeps the drying energy on the textile material longer, so that it can be used very efficiently. As a result, energy savings of up to 50 per cent can be achieved. Exhaust air energy can also be reduced to a minimum, which has a positive effect on the emission load into the atmosphere.” (GK)
