Van Clewe, a leading European textile and fabrics finisher, has shared its success story with Zimmer Austria machinery, in producing top quality textile products. In an interview with Zimmer Austria, a leader in textile and carpet finishing, Ansgar Van Clewe, the CEO of the company, talked about the strategies to compete and succeed in the textile industry.

“With Zimmer Austria, we have found a trust¬worthy and reliable partner. For example, Van Clewe is printing in the application areas of sun protection, clothing and technical prints. And in this area, high flexibility by means of fast and easy handling during design changes is as important as printing with maximum accuracy and in highest quality. Therefore, we are working with the Zimmer Rotascreen.TU printing machine with open bearing system. As this system allows us to achieve the necessary high quality and flexibility even at a large printing width of 2.40 metres as screens, colour pipes, and roll rods can be pre-assembled and changed simultaneously. This saves time and minimises costs, while constantly achieving highest quality results without any problems or many machine downtimes,” Clewe said in the interview.

Talking about reliability of Zimmer as a partner, he said, “Zimmer Austria is known as a reli-able machine manufacturer that produces to 100 per cent in Europe under highest quality standards. That’s what we appreciate in particular. Regarding the printing machine, Zimmer’s open bearing system with the new squeegee holding device and the squeegee in combination with the magnet system enables us to achieve way better re¬sults than with traditional roll squeegees. Since we are using the technology of Zimmer, we didn’t have broken squeegees anymore. And due to the paste recovery system, we are also able to fulfil our environmental as energy saving standards. So all in all we are more than satisfied with our machines from Zimmer.”

“We could see a growing demand and trend towards high quality coatings, especially in one of our core competences, the sun protection segment. Therefore, we want to strengthen our capabilities and decided to invest in the new Magnoroll coating machine from Zimmer, as we could also see the advantages in terms of quality, due to the magnet system within our coating line,” he added.

Discussing about his plans for the future, Clewe said, “When you plan everything in detail, the chance of not meeting any set goals is pretty high. That’s why we rather focus on constantly delivering high quality products by investing in the best machinery, optimising efficiency, enhance sustainability and we make large investments in environmental improvements, as we perceive that as our responsibility.” (GK)
