German fabric processing machineries maker A. Monforts Textilmaschinen is showing innovations including exhaust air cleaning and heat recovery system with automatic cleaning at ITMA 2015 in hall 10, booth E101.

“Furthermore, we continue to offer the best technology in the marketplace including a new 7 metres wide width machine, the Montex XXL stenter, which is also suitable for non-woven applications,” a Monforts press release stated.

The Monforts Eco Booster HRC, designed to minimise energy costs during drying and heat setting processes on stenters will be available for the first time for retrofitting to existing Montex installations.

“By contrast with purely static heat exchanger modules, the new heat exchanger module actually cleans itself during operation; eliminating standstill times for maintenance,” it said.

The Eco Booster permits a computer-controlled adaptation of the heat exchanger performance to the prevailing waste air stream, which further reduces process costs.

“Eco Booster runs fully automatically so the operator does not have additional duties to carry out, since due to its automatic cleaning feature, the machine does not need to be stopped during production runs,” the company informed.

Another product, the Eco-Applicator has already been nominated amongst the three finalists for the ITMA Sustainable Innovation Award 2015 in the 'Industry Excellence Award' category.

According to Monforts, the Eco-Applicator liquor application process offers significant energy savings with reduced drying capacity required for a wide range of applications.

These include felt finishes, coated materials and medical textiles including nano coating, water repellancy, softeners, flame retardency and insect repellancy.

A new version for knitted fabrics will also be introduced at ITMA and has been designed to apply liquor to one side of the fabric or apply liquor to both sides of the fabric.

The new version can also apply different liquors to either side of the fabric or also apply two different liquors consecutively to a single side of the fabric.

A new Montex horizontal stentering chain will also be introduced which is completely maintenance free and will complement the well proven Montex chain systems for horizontal and vertical chain return.

“The new Montex Hybrid Chain will be also available for retrofit to existing Montex stenters,” the company stated.

Also on show is a completely new and further enhanced visualisation software with 'finger tip' control features offering smart phone-type techniques for Monforts machine operators.

Available for Montex new 8500 stenters, the new model also features a redesigned operator's platform with ergonomic advantages during finishing and coating processes.

A new denim stretching unit too will be presented for achieving smooth stretching under the highest process speeds during denim shrinking and finishing through twin shrinking units with twin felt calenders. (AR)
