Berto SpA, the first Italian company to install a Montex stenter line with an integrated Eco Applicator from Monforts, has developed a wide range of new coating and colouring concepts for denim finishing.

“Berto SpA is taking Italian flair and German finishing machinery innovation to a whole new level with its latest Never Fade solid indigo denims guaranteed to retain colour for their lifetime,” Monforts says in a press release.

At the Denim by PV exhibition, in addition to the Never Fade jeans, Berto showed its Grace Kelly and Romance printed denims and the Karma Glove range of coated stretch fabrics in vivid and full colours.

“A strategy of continuous investment has been a key to Berto’s success as it began spinning its own open end yarns and adding ring spinning in 2004,” Monforts added.

Later, the company installed an indigo dyeing plant and as part of a major modernisation and expansion programme, took delivery of the Monforts eight-chamber Montex stenter with the Eco Applicator.

“This has enabled us to increase even further the wide range of differentiated fabrics, primarily denims, we are manufacturing each season,” says finishing manager, Sebastiano Antico.

“The sensor-controlled Eco Applicator unit is a very efficient method of applying dyes and coatings via a sophisticated roller system,” he adds.

“The reliability and accuracy of the Monforts line is excellent as since we installed it, the percentage of fabrics we have had to re-work has decreased substantially,” he informs.

“It has also allowed us to considerably expand the range of special materials we offer, including resin treated and polymerised fabrics,” he observes.

Berto‘s latest Never Fade solid indigo denims rely on both a special dyeing technique and the precision finishing made possible by the Eco Applicator.

The Monforts Eco Applicator unit allows the very precise application of treatments for new functionality on just one side of the material, or on both, and can also apply separate treatments on each side.

The sensors automatically adjust the moisture application rollers to the speed of the fabric and can move with or against the line, depending on the desired objective.

“Not only is this resulting in a wide range of new treatments and effects being achieved, it is also leading to big savings, as a result of the amount of reduced drying energy” Monforts too adds.

Berto is a supplier of denim to leading European designer brands, including Armani, Dolce & Gabbana and Valentino in Italy alone. (AR)
