Double Monforts investment for Boyteks Boya
Aug '08
Çorlu knitwear specialist supplying local Turkish garment makers takes delivery of new Montex stenter and DynAir relaxation drying range from Monforts.

Boyteks Boya has commissioned a new DynAir relaxation drying range and an eight-chamber Montex stenter from A. Monforts Textilmaschinen GmbH, both in widths of 2.4 m.

Founded six years ago by entrepreneur Yilmaz Köksal, Boyteks Boya Tekstil is dyeing and finishing a daily 18-20 t of knitted cotton and polyester fabrics daily at two plants in the Çorlu region of Turkey

Çorlu, situated some 70km west of Istanbul, is a city which has boomed over the past decade, its population having risen over the past 20 years from barely 20,000 to 250,000 people, largely as a consequence of the new textile mills which have been built in the region, and now number approximately 350 in total.

All the knitted fabrics processed by Boyteks Boya, in weights of up to 400 gsm, are supplied by two sister knitting operations located in Istanbul. End-products are almost entirely sold to the local Turkish market for garment making-up.

“In Turkey we have developed very strong know-how in dyeing and finishing processes and it's no surprise that Monforts machines are so widely employed here,” says Hakki Dolu, the company's head of dry processing.

Standing side by side, the two new lines now form the epicentre of production at the plant.

The DynAir twin-belt drying line is optimised for the relaxation shrinking of knitted fabrics with feed in either open-width or tubular form. Its special air guidance system has dynamic pulsating air currents which allow the fabric to simply glide through the dryer completely skew-free.

“One of the main reasons for going with these lines was that we are running the plant with oil and not natural gas and Monforts is very strong on the latest oil heated technology,” said Mr Dolu. “In addition, the lines are much faster than locally built competing lines and also robust and reliable.”
