Osthoff's singeing machines for superior quality knits

Aug '08
Finishing of knit-goods was generally carried out in tubular form, until recently. But with its following significant advantages there is a clear tendency in the industry to process knits more and more in open width form.

• improved quality
• reduced losses
• lower production costs

When speaking about improving of quality, almost immediately singeing comes into focus of the specialists involved. A.T.E., the complete solution provider in textile machinery, represents the market leader, Osthoff-Senge in singeing technology. Osthoff-Senge has developed a new singeing machine, especially for knit-goods in open width form with working width of 2600 mm.

The machine is based on the well proven on the conventional Osthoff-Senge singeing machines, as burners, proportional gas: air mixing and pre-selected singeing positions. Main difference is fabric guiding and transport. The machine is equipped with selvedge uncurling and a driven spreading and centering device.

The open stretched material slides over a guiding plate to another driven scroll rollers, guaranteeing the best possible opening before the fabric is singed. The fabric is protected by a water cooled roller in the very moment, when the flame gets active.

The distance between the various guiding rollers is kept short to prevent the rolling off the selvedge. The machine allows singeing on both sides i.e face side and back side of the material in one passage or with an option to do singeing only on the face side.

After the singeing, the material is guided to a vacuum cleaning unit. This unit is integrated into the singeing machines and removes all kinds of residues and impurities from both sides of fabrics. Since knitwear is prone to mechanical energy, this machine uses simple air to give under-pressure to the fabric.

On top of the singeing machine a fabric pull roller is installed to pull the fabric from the machine. To avoid any fire hazards, the knitwear is guided via scroll roller into a steam box. The whole area of the box is filled with steam which further settles on the fabric and thus preventing it from catching fire. Finally the fabric is delivered via a plaiter into box carriages.
