Lake Como heralds Europe's first Montex 6500 JV stenter

Italian high quality finishing specialist, Tintoria Stamperia di Tavernola, takes delivery of Europe's first Montex 6500 JV stenter in a compact 'shoe horn' fit installation; bearing testimony to the skills of Monforts installation team.

Europe's first Montex 6500 JV has been installed in Como Tavernola, with waves from Lake Como virtually lapping the end of the street Via Mazzini – home of Tintoria Stamperia di Tavernola.

Founded in 1980 by Maderna Silvano, Tintoria Stamperia di Tavernola has established an outstanding reputation for its high quality finishing in a variety of cotton and mixed 'elasticated' textiles, all bound for leading European fashion houses: including 80% of products for upmarket Italian fashionwear.

Fabrics include 100% cotton, 95% viscose and 5% spandex mix, 95% cotton and 5% spandex mix, 100% polyester, 95% polyester and 5% spandex mix, 100% seta and 100% polyamide.

With space an absolute premium within the small mill, the virtual 'shoe horn' installation bears testimony to the skills of the German Monforts installation team; installing and commissioning the stenter in just four weeks.

With the 34 m long finishing line virtually butting against concrete columns down one side of the stenter, just centimetres remain around the remaining three sides to provide necessary access throughout the installation.

Monforts unique vertical opening doors along one side of the stenter, therefore provide a key element of the completed installation allowing the only means of access to the stenter chambers.

The recently introduced Montex 6500 JV stenter has been designed and engineered in Germany and produced in Monforts Joint Venture facility, Monforts Fong's Textile Machinery in China.

The new Montex 6500 JV incorporates proven Monforts technology and all installation, commissioning, service and spare parts activities are undertaken from Germany, ensuring direct customer contact.

In addition to the vertical opening doors, fitted as standard, other features include Monforts proven TwinAir system with separately controlled top and bottom air flows as well as “Qualitex” – PLC-controls to ensure reproducible fabric results at all times.

The Montex 6500 JV stenter has been designed for both woven and knitted fabrics and is available in configuration from 4-10 treatment chambers, working widths of 60-240 cm and stenter speeds of 5-100 m/min.

The complete finishing line at Tintoria Stamperia di Tavernola incorporates a Bianco weft straightener, a Küsters dye pad at the in-feed of the 4-chamber Montex 6500 JV and, with the fabric feeding into a Monforts delivery frame at the out-feed, directly onto an AFT automation roll card.

Space limitations meant that the infeed was kept to an absolute minimum and just a four-chamber stenter. Similarly with no room for a relaxation dryer, in order to ensure residual shrinkage in both length and width, it is necessary to run the elasticated spandex mixes 'slack' in the in feed, entering the stenter at slow speeds.
