Icomatex showcases four technologies at ITMA ASIA
Jun '14
Spanish textile machinery manufacturer Icomatex manufacturer of dyeing and drying machinery, Stenter frames and coating units is participating at ITMA ASIA being held in China in hall E-6 stall no. G-02. 
At ITMA ASIA Icomatex is exhibiting –
IC8/IC10 Stenter Frames:
The Icomatex Stenter gives a wide range of options to let one be able to process the fabric the way one likes it. Icomatex Stenter is fully produced in Europe, and features the latest in technology. The stenter is available in 2 versions, the IC-10 model for knitted goods, and the IC-8 for woven fabrics. 
Its highly efficient chambers are 3m long and divided in to 2, 1.5m sections with individual control of the airflow, to ensure even temperature in the processing chamber. With the IC-PROD production management system, one can control the whole machine from one touch screen, situated at the operator platform. The Stenter is available with the heating-system of one’s choice. 
The newly developed ICORELAX dryer, achieves the maximum quality for all kinds of fabrics and is meant for open width or tubular fabrics. An overfeeding unit allows to feed fabric in a relaxed way to achieve a good handling and shrinkage. Extra units such as pad mangle for chemicals or a pin frame for fabric control can also be installed. 
The nozzles play one of the most important roles in the dryers. The ICORELAX uses special nozzles with a controlled "Wave", according to the specific needs of each type of fabric. All nozzles have a "click-cleaning" system to split the nozzles and do the cleaning without using any tools. The high power fans have an airflow regulation and a very compact design in order to save the energy as much as possible.
ICOWASH - Continuous Washing and bleaching:
With higher performance than one standard box, the ICOWASH allows big savings on chemicals and delivers a much dryer fabric due to the vacuum slot installed at the exit. The first step is a spray prewasher forcing the pass of the water from one side to the other, by means of a vacuum unit.
This process also reduces drastically the humidity of the fabric to have the best conditions for higher pickup when it is introduced into the impregnation bath where two submerged suction units force the passage of the chemicals through the fabric, both in the same way or opposite, depending on the fabric needs. Once out of the bath, a new pass through a second water spray makes an extra washing and delivers the fabric to the second vacuum slot to minimize the residual moisture.
ICOVAC - Vacuum Systems
For installations where it’s only needed to extract the humidity or remove excessive chemicals on the fabric, Icomatex has an independent vacuum suction assembly, which consists of a suction body, separation filter, vacuum pump and separation exhaust. The unit is delivered as a compact assembly for an easy integration with the rest of the machine.
In stenters, it reduces the humidity before the stenter which ensures better padder pickup and higher speed. In dryers it reduces the humidity before the drying process which in turn ensures higher speed. In winding, it is installed at the exit of jiggers which helps reduce excess moisture. It can also be installed between washing tanks helping improve the efficiency and allowing better pickup.
