India-based Embee Group has introduced improvised washers for the textile printing industry. These washers also use filtered recycled water for washing, reusing 90 per cent of water. The improvised screen, squeegee and drum washers are perfect for efficient washing with minimum water consumption combined with water recirculation, the company said.
The need to reduce water consumption and pollution are not just important but a growing necessity all over the world today. Water pollution is also a growing concern in the textile industry. One area of concern is the printing section were water is consumed in large amount for washing screen, squeegee and drum. Currently, majority of the washing is done manually and as a result there is no control over the water consumption. Understanding the current need, Embee has introduced improvised washers which also use filtered recycled water for washing, and in this way 90 per cent of water is reused. 
“One of our customers was facing problem with reduced productivity and to overcome this problem they were planning to buy new textile rotary printing machine. After understanding and analysing their problem, we proposed them a simple solution. We convinced them to invest on Embee’s highly advanced screen washer, squeegee washer and drum washer. Moreover, the investment on these washers is negligible as compared to the new printing machine. Today, the customer is not only just satisfied with our washers but after using our washers their productivity has increased by up to 50 per cent,” Harsh Shah, MD and board member, Embee Group, told Fibre2Fashion.
Unique advantages of new Embee washers include significant increase in efficiency and productivity. Gone are the days, when the customer demanded for long printing run. Today, the trend has changed; customers are now demanding for short printing run. If the customer just wants to print up to 2,000 meters then achieving increased efficiency becomes very difficult with the manual washing of screens, squeegees and drums. Embee’s high tech washers can wash 6 screens and 6 squeegees in the same time duration while only 1 screen and 1 squeegee can be washed with manual method. In this way, design overtime can be reduced to 10 minutes which significantly increases efficiency and productivity up to 60 per cent. 
Another advantage of Embee washers is perfect and efficient washing for all types of screens. High pressurised water jet uniformly cleans thoroughly from all sides with the aid of bristles. In conventional manual washing there is always a risk of damaging the delicate nickel screens and improper washing of drums. Further in manual washing, screens and drums are not washed properly from inside and outside.
There is significant water saving, compared to conventional cleaning, which is carried out with enormous wastage of water as well as messing up the workplace. Embee strongly believes in conserving nature and as a part of this belief all washers of Embee use minimum water as compared to conventional cleaning.
Water reusability is another feature of all the washers of Embee – screen washer, squeegee washer and drum washer, which have water recirculation system. There are 2 connections—one for fresh water and another connection for filtered recycled water. Users can set timer according to the requirement and as result up to 90 per cent of the water can be saved.
There is also significant time saving. In manual washing, even though the screen/squeegee takes 5-10 minutes for washing, it is not properly washed. Whereas, 6 multiple screens and squeegees can be washed within the same time with Embee washers. Further with drum washer and squeegee washer, waste water can be filtered and reused for washing purpose; thereby, saving up to 90 per cent of water consumption.  
Further, there is minimum requirement of labour. The growing textile sector is evolving fast towards decreasing the running cost, which is dependent on labour and resources. Keeping the cost factor in mind, Embee has manufactured washers which need minimum labour unlike conventional cleaning. Since washing is an automated cycle completely devoid of human interference, labour is required only to load and unload the screens/drums.
Embee washers also give the fastest payback, possibly within few months, since significant time, water and labour saving can done. There is also space saving as the compact design of the machine requires minimum space and can be easily placed along side of the rotary printing machine.
Established in 1956 with a small beginning, Embee has always believed in continuous innovation and research for the betterment of today’s and tomorrow’s commitments to the textile industry. All products of Embee are aligned with its vision to be the most trusted global leader in innovative technological solutions, focused on ‘higher efficiency’ and ‘returns’ for sustainable growth of all the stakeholders. 
More than six decades of experience with continuous research, technical modernisation, cooperation of its technical and R&D teams enables Embee to offer unique textile machinery products of high quality and precision. Today, Embee provides a complete range of textile rotary printing systems. “Innovation has been not only a core strength but also a tradition at Embee,” says Shah. (RKS)
