Two Thies iMaster F, each with a capacity of 400 kg, together with two 25 kg Thies mini-soft sampling units have been installed at one of Portugal’s leading terry towelling producers, Mundotextil.
The order, placed through local distributor Joao Sampaio, marks the start of an on-going modernisation programme to replace up to eight older Portugese-marque dyeing machines.
It also coincides with an increased order book from European buyers seeking an alternative supplier to those in Asia.
“The trend began some 16 months ago when we had spare capacity as a result of the Euro crisis,” explained Mundotextil director, José Casimiro Coelho Lima.
“Whilst we could not compete with the large batch production, we can certainly beat them for the smaller runs with on-time deliveries, ease of logistics and transportation, together with repeated high quality.”
He continued, “As a direct result, we are seeing a return of many of our old European customers and several new ones – resulting in 24/7 production to meet demand.”
The new Thies units have allowed Mundotextil to meet demand with increased production together with significant savings on energy, water and chemicals.
iMaster F dyeing machines
Only recently introduced, the iMaster F series of dying machines have been designed particularly for heavy pile fabrics, such as terry towelling, ensuring economic and environmental operation with advanced automation at low liquor levels as low as 1:4 for cotton.
The system features a large transport winch inside the dyeing kier to be processed with significantly reduced elongation. This results in an improved stability, perfect fabric condition and appearance.
Moreover, the iMaster F series is able to process a wide range of different articles.
Equipped with a 100% stock tank, a dosing tank and delivery system for dry salt, the machine is supplied optimised for the production of Terry articles. The automatic self-cleaning filter system always helps to achieve the same dyeing and treatment conditions every time. I
Manual interventions for cleaning are reduced and productivity is increased. Dyecontrol allows the visual display of the treatment curves to control the liquor clarity as well as the determination of the dye exhaust from the liquor.
The dyer recognizes if and when the dyes migrate from the aqueous phase to the fibre. During rinsing bath saturation can be determined. This allows program steps to be shortened and sequences to be programmed more efficiently; making treatment processes transparent and optimized.
Rinse, wash and dye baths are measured on-line, continuously analysed and displayed graphically.
