Whether dyeing 100% crepe chine silk or silk/polyamide/lycra blends, Italian commission dyeing specialist Lariana SRL is using 25% less gas consumption with its recently installed Montex from A.Monforts Textilmaschinen; compared with the company’s second stenter installed alongside the Montex.
Como-based Lariana ordered the Montex from Monforts local representative, Sacconaghi-Monaco Srl, to replace an older multi-layered stenter and specifically for its thermofixing processes. It was needed to meet increasing production demands and faster fabric turnaround to meet improved deliveries.
In addition to the energy consumption savings, the Montex is also operating at 30% faster speeds than the competitive stenter.
The reduced gas consumption is, according to a spokesman for Lariana, directly attributed to the roof-mounted, heat recovery system - which is part of Monforts on-going effort to reduce energy consumption for the textile industry and is fitted as standard to all Montex 6500’s.
Although founded in 1938 as a commission dyer, the company saw a change of ownership in 2001. Today, Lariana continues to successfully operate as a high quality dyeing specialist for the ‘high end’ market.
Since the change of ownership, finished production has virtually doubled to almost 2 million metres/month.
In addition to silk, the company dyes a variety of fabric blends incorporating cotton, nylon, polyamide and lycra. A typical high quality fabric features a 17% polyamide/53% wool/30% lycra blend in a weight of 198 gm/m² for luxury ladies fashion wear.
Weights for 100% silk fabrics can vary between 80 – 230 gm/m².
The new Montex is used for all dyeing, thermofixing and finishing processes including ‘soft hand feel’ with fixing once the greige fabric has been washed before dyeing. All fabrics are subsequently passed through the stenter in a second finishing pass.
