Pak textile delegation visits Monforts Technology Centre

Pakistani textile manufacturers were recently provided with an exclusive insight into the latest dyeing technologies at the technology centre of A. Monforts Textilmaschinen GmbH.

The delegation included 14 plant managers and technical managing directors who were updated with new production processes and resource-efficient solutions.

According to a Monforts press release, the exchange of views and information among experts at the technology centre is very important to Monforts.

"The suggestions for refinements and product improvements are often initiated by our customers," chief technologist, Peter Tolksdorf said.

“For decades, Pakistan has been supplied with finishing and dyeing machines for the textile industry, while quality awareness is also on the rise,” Wolfgang Poos, head of Monforts' sales in Pakistan said.

“Monforts' machines are world leaders when it comes to sustainable and energy-efficient solutions," the German dyeing and finishing machine manufacturer said.

The delegation was shown an environmentally-friendly dyeing procedure, the ‘Econtrol’ process done with the support of dye manufacturer, DyStar and jointly developed by Monforts and DyStar.

The Econtrol method fixes the dye during the drying process by means of a controlled chamber climate with 25 volume per cent of steam, due to which the entire steaming process can be saved.

“Only 20 grams of salt per litre of treatment liquor is now required and the energy-intensive operation of an additional damper is no longer needed,” it explained.

In addition, the dyeing result is available within two minutes, whereas in the conventional processes or the cold pad-batch method, 12 to 24 hours have to be scheduled.

Since the proportion of textiles with fibre blends has considerably increased over recent years, a further specialised method has been developed on the basis of the Econtrol process to fulfil specific requirements.

“With the Econtrol T-CA method it is now possible to dye polyester and cotton together in one step at the same time,” Monforts added.

This saves the reductive cleaning and the associated intermediate drying and in addition to time savings and the reduced use of chemicals, the energy consumption is also significantly reduced.

"Our customers were impressed," says Monforts' authorised signatory Klaus Heinrich when summarising the delegation's visit.

Monforts Textilmaschinen produces continuous dyeing plants as well as systems for the finishing and coating of woven and knitted fabrics. (AR)
