Santex to show Decofast machine for fabrics at ShanghaiTex

Santex (Shanghai) Textile Co., Ltd, a leading manufacturer of textile machines for knit fabrics finishing, is set to present its new Decofast machine, for decatizing of woven and knitted fabrics of wool and wool-like material, at ShanghaiTex expo, which will be held from June 15 to 18, 2015, in China.

Decatizing is a well-known method of improving dimensional stability and other physical features of woven and warp-knitted fabrics by use of steam and temperature. The continuous method has several advantages compared to traditional batch processing. For example the risk of sewing joint marks, wrap marks and colour differences are eliminated.

The Decofast machine uses steam pressures of up to 2 bar and temperatures up to 135 °C. The steaming, suction and cooling units of the machine can be controlled separately. In the main unit, the fabric is led under adjustable conditions between a steel drum and a felt blanket, which is made by a special permeable material. After processing, the finished fabric has an improved hand and look, as well as enhanced stability, drapability, tailorability, and lustre. The new finishing technology meets market requirements, where new types of woollen blended fabric are used, such as elastic fabric for casual and sportswear, according to a company press release.

The machine has been originally designed and manufactured at SperettoRimar, Italy, a subsidiary of the Santex group. Over the last years the machine has been widely used in the Chinese textile industry. With the new assembly of the machines in Shanghai, Chinese customers benefit from shorter delivery times and better price/performance ratio, while the quality stays very high. Santex has an experienced sales and pre-sales technology team supporting customers nationwide.

At the show, Santex will also present the complete portfolio of textile machinery for finishing of knitted fabric. (GK)
