New combi coater from Monforts
Feb '10
A new multi-purpose coating device offers 'air knife' and 'knife over roller' techniques for coating applications of 15 –100 g/m2 and 50 – 1500 g/m2 textile weights respectively; and fully integrated electrics for Montex Qualitex control.

A new multi-purpose combi Matex Coating unit is introduced by A. Monforts Textilmaschinen incorporating 'air knife' and 'knife over roller' techniques for a wide variety of specialised coating applications; suitable for both woven and non-woven textiles.

Compactly-built, the Matex Coat is a universal coating device for fine coating hydrophobic pigment up to tarpaulin and truck covers.

The coating unit is suitable for paste or foam applications.

In the 'air knife' mode, for example, it is ideal for coating products such as silicon coating for airbags, fine coating for outdoor textiles and denim pigment coating, upholstery, mattresses and sun protection.

The 'knife over roller' is ideal for pile locking/back stabilisations, blackouts (foam applications), vertical blinds, table cloths, sportswear (foam applications), tarpaulin, dusters and non-wovens.

Integrated electrics
Featuring fully integrated electrics, which can be easily 'clipped' into the Montex Qualitex controls and requiring no adaptation, the new coating unit can be retrofitted into existing ranges. It is preferably installed at the front end of the Montex stenter.

Coating weights
Coating weights of 15 – 100 g/m2 wet can be applied using 'air knife' techniques and paste viscosities of 1000 – 100,000 mPas.

For 'knife over roller' techniques coating weights of 50 – 1500 g/m2 can be achieved with paste viscosities of 3000 – 120,000 mPas.

The Matex Coat is designed for use with fabric widths of 180 – 360 cm and features a motorised driven coating drum.

The doctor blade is adjusted manually and features an optional automatic, pneumatic quick lifting device for seams – where two batches are sewn together.

The knife can be turned and is adjusted in steps of 0.01 mm. The 400 mm diameter drum under the knife is a hard chromed roller.

A driven fabric transport roller to control fabric tensions of 25-250 Nn is also optionally available.

Standard foam mixers can be applied and a traversing device for paste/foams is also available.

The Matex Coat offers a high performance ratio and is competitively priced.
