At the forthcoming ITMA Asia – CITME 2014 exhibition (Shanghai, 16-20 June), MESDAN, the renowned Splicer and Laboratory equipment producer from Italy, is having two distinguished display areas.The ITMA Asia 2014 will testify a premier launch of the new Mesdan DyeLab systems.
Particular focus of interest is expected on:
-MoistAir 6901R, launched at Shanghaitex 2013, its extraordinary results in splicing fine TENCEL yarns brought forward consistent orders and increasing success;
-Indigo Splicer 4662, unique solution to knotless joining of Denim rope-dyed Indio yarns;
-Hot Jointair 4984B, a quality splice benchmark for worsted, cashmere and fancy yarns.
-Quality control testing equipment, the main focus we expect on the AQUA-LAB, an innovative instrument for accurate measurement of moisture content and regain in fibres and yarn packages.
The main features of AQUA-LAB are:
-Fast, a measurement takes only few seconds
-High repeatability and reproducibility of results
-Perfect correlation with a regain oven (standard drying system)
-No sample weighing or preliminary preparation required
-Non-destructive method, no waste of material
-Simple test execution which can be performed by unskilled personnel
-The instrument automatically measures moisture regain by means of a powerful dedicated software that provides statistical analysis of the results and calculates commercial parameters fully automatically
-Reduced consumption of electricity (about 0.125 kW), practically zero when compared to a classic oven-drying (about 10 kW)
-Low power microwave radiations released do not endanger the end user
-No calibration required
-Free of maintenance: no consumables, no wear, no aging
-Compact and robust instrument that does not require special environmental conditions to operate properly.
-During the ICCTM conference held in Bremen/Germany on March 18, 2014, the ITMF International Committee on Cotton Testing Methods (ICCTM) gave full recognition to AQUA-LAB.
Other testing equipment on display in the spinning hall will be:
-NATI, Neps and Trash indicator, a very popular tool for detecting, measuring and classifying neps in row material and slivers,
-AUTODYN, fully automatic tensile strength tester;
-MT EVENNESS and HAIRINESS tester, fully automatic evenness tester for slivers, rovings and spun yarns, both natural and man-made, complete with the hairiness sensor;
QC & Dyeing testing area, Hall E6 – booth F01
The Mesdan’s 2013 acquisition of the majority stake of Gavazzi SrL company, renowned Italian manufacturer ofLaboratory equipment for dyeing and finishing, gave a great impulse to Mesdan-Lab in broadening further the applications of its textile QC laboratory equipment range.
Under the slogan “From lab to bulk”, some innovative new equipment will be showcased for the first time, two deserve particular attention, The AUTO- CHROMA Infra Red “click-valve” dyeing machine, endowed with two very special features:
-Fully automatic dosing (up to 3 automatic valves) eliminates stop-start operations and improves considerably dyeing uniformity,
-Special 300cc pots design (patent pending worldwide) allows for use of only one type of pot for all liquor ratio which covers the following volumes: 100, 150, 200, 250 and 300cc.
These and other factors allow drastic dyeing time reduction, improved dye accuracy, uniformity and dye reproducibility.
