Denim manufacturers using Monforts machinery will be participating in the Denim Premiere Vision expo, the fashion and culture denim event, which will be held in London, UK on December 5 and 6, 2018. Monforts is a global leader among the manufacturers and exporters of textile machines. It is known for its continuous dyeing and textile finishing machines.

Among exhibitors at the December 2018 London edition of Denim Première Vision will be major players from India and Pakistan – the two countries which have come to dominate the global market for denim fabric and denim jeans production over the past ten years. Spearheading a lead in sustainable denim production are companies such as Pakistan’s Soorty and India’s Arvind – both of whom have recently installed Monforts Eco Applicators at their denim manufacturing mills, Monforts said.

As an alternative to conventional padding, especially for wet-in-wet solutions, the Monforts Eco Applicator can significantly reduce the thermal energy required for drying prior to the stretching and skewing of the denim fabric. In many textile mills globally, the cost of energy for running integrated manufacturing lines – especially those for fabric finishing that can involve numerous sequences of heating and subsequent drying – is now eclipsing the cost of paying people to operate them.

The ability of the Eco Applicator to significantly reduce energy costs has seen it rapidly accepted on the market. Soorty is a major producer of denim fabric and jeans, now employing some 22,000 people across its operations, which are largely based in Karachi, Pakistan. It has recently established a new, award-winning garment making-up department and office in Bangladesh, as well as a design studio in Amsterdam. Among its prestigious clients are Calvin Klein, Dorothy Perkins, Esprit, H&M, Lee, Mango, Tommy Hilfiger, Tom Tailor, and Zara.

The installation of an Eco Applicator was made by Soorty two years ago, as part of the opening of a second denim manufacturing plant in Karachi which increased the company’s finished woven denim capacity to some 5.5 million metres a month. The Eco-Applicator immediately slashed the company’s denim finishing costs, as verified by an in-depth sustainable production study, carried out with the Swiss-based chemicals giant Archroma.

Monforts is now going a stage further in addressing resource efficiency by combining the Eco Applicator with its ThermoStretch unit in the latest Eco Line concept. The Monforts ThermoStretch unit carries out the skewing (weft straightening), stretching, and drying in a continuous process.

Arvind has recently installed India’s first integrated Monforts Eco Line which can handle fabric widths of 1.8 metres and operate at high speeds of up to 80 m/min. It is operating alongside four Montex foam finishing stenters, which are also able to handle this same width of material.

The Eco Line system reduces energy losses and energy use, increases thermal transfer and keeps the drying energy on the textile material longer, so that it can be used very efficiently. As a result, energy savings of up to 50 per cent can be achieved. Exhaust air energy can also be reduced to a minimum, which has a positive effect on the emission load into the atmosphere. Arvind’s current annual denim capacity is now 110 million metres and some key initiatives have been specifically aimed at reducing the use of energy, water, and chemicals. (GK)
