“Currently, most textile manufacturers do not recognise the potential of robotics and automation, but in the future, this mindset will change. I am aware of a few projects that use robotics, like in palletising system for yarns,” said Bahadir Kupeli, chief marketing officer, HAS Group, which producing textile finishing machineries specially developed for knitted, woven, denim, home textile, technical textile and carpets.
On the subject of innovations in the industry, he was of the opinion that the main focus of finishing machinery segment was on ecological and sustainable production. “The finishing machines especially for drying, fixation, dyeing, etc, use valuable resources like gas, wood, coal or water, and consume high power in order to maximise the production output,” Kuplei told Fibre2Fashion.
“Finishing machine makers are answerable to their consumers and they need to follow a strategy to fullfill customer demands for quality and high output with lowest energy use and minimal wastage of resources,” he added.
Giving an example, he said that HAS Group has invested in green technologies, like in a heat recovery system, which the company continuously improves to maximise energy saving, and is now able to save up to 25 per cent energy for a 8 chamber stenter.
Additionally, HAS Group launched last year a new air filtration system, which ensures emission-free production, which it combined with its heat recovery system. The result is green production and saving costs. (AR)
