Karnataka based Himatsingka Linens, a division of Himatsingka Seide Ltd, is installing three new Monforts machines to the existing line-up of four Monforts units. The three new machines are all German-built. This will double Himatsingka Linens’ output of bed linen, entail a backward integration into spinning, and see its first foray into terry towelling.
 
The new Monforts machines to be installed are a10 chamber Montex 6500 stenter, a Monfortex 8000, and a Thermex CDR with E-Control. All these units feature a fabric working width of 3200 mm and are being installed by Monforts’ representative for India, ATE Enterprises Private Ltd.
 
Counted amongst the world’s largest producers of bed linen products, Himatsingka is a vertically integrated home textiles company that is engaged in spinning, weaving and finishing of textiles. The company manufactures, retails and distributes bedding, bath, drapery, upholstery, and lifestyle accessory products. 
 
Himatsingka executive director Vasudevan Veeraraghvan said that the group is doubling its existing sheeting capacity from 23 million metres per annum to 46 million metres. The company will also be installing for the first time 211,000 spindles as part of its backward integration into spinning, and the entry into the terry towels sector will see it setting up a capacity for 25,000 tons per annum.
 
“Installation for the new Monforts machines will be completed by the beginning of 2017, and we plan to quickly reach full production capacity,” said Vasudevan. “We are a long-time Monforts user, and our company culture includes Monforts.”
 
“Our company is solely in the export sector, and we produce high quality branded products. That means we require the best technology,” he said.
 
At the bed linen mill, the new units will join two eight chamber Montex 6500 units—one of the units featuring a Montex Thermex condensation unit with two curing chambers being positioned on top of the stenter. There is also a Monfortex 7000 model Sanforiser and a Montex Thermex CDR E-Control dyeing range, both with 3200 mm fabric working width.
 
Expansion of sheeting capacity will enable the company to make printed products, which will enhance its fashion bedding shares in the market, and also help Himatsingka to enter into the basic bedding segments where it is currently not present. (RKS)
