New online monitoring system for Indigo Coloration
Jun '11
DyStar Colours Deutschland GmbH, Frankfurt, the Becatron AG, Müllheim, Switzerland, and the Lilienweiß GmbH, Remshalden, have jointly developed a new online monitoring system for indigo coloration.

The system, which is based on a new technology, detects, adjusts and documents data of critical process parameter online during indigo coloration, such as concentrations of dyestuff and reducing agents as well as pH values. The system will be presented for the first time to a broad professional audience in September 2011 during ITMA in Barcelona.

“The technology leaders for indigo, covering dyeing, automatization as well as analysis technologies have joined forces. The result of their co-development offers indigo users a further improvement of quality and RFT (right first time) rates. Through this, it will help to reduce costs and increasing competitiveness”, says Günther Widler, Head of Technology Denim at DyStar.

The Becatron AG, located in Müllheim, Switzerland, has been active in the textile industry worldwide since 1980. The company stands for quality and high-tech products in the areas of control systems (hardware and software), sensors and dosing facilities for finishing factories.

The Lilienweiß GmbH, located in Remshalden, Germany, is active in the areas of finishing, textile audits and consulting. The company serves producers of denim, the textile-chemical and textile machine industry as well as the apparel industry with a broad range of textile services.

Formed in 1995 as a coloration specialist for the textile industry, DyStar has transformed itself into a solution provider, offering customers a complete range of colorants, auxiliaries, textile solutions and expert services. Our team of well-trained staff and modern service labs in major markets ensure that customers all over the world receive fast and expert technical service.
