A.Monforts will be participating at Shanghaitex as part of the German Engineering Federation (VDMA), highlighting its energy saving solutions in textiles dyeing and finishing.
These solutions will include the integrated heat recovery modules and exhaust air cleaning units to reduce energy consumption and clean the exhaust air of thermo finishing ranges.
Where space may be a premium, Monforts has introduced a stand-alone Energy Tower for retrofitting to existing stenters or hotflues with restricted access above the units.
Energy Towers have been designed to be positioned alongside the stenter or hotflue, and feature five integrated heat recovery modules. Capitalising on the high temperature of the exhaust air, savings of up to 30% in energy costs can be achieved, in accordance with Monforts.
Monforts will also give emphasis to its latest Montex TT stenter for technical textiles featuring a specially developed nozzle system for coating applications as well as outstanding maintenance features.
Andritz Küsters, will showcare their complete product range of calenders and rolls for the textile industry as well as machinery for the nonwoven industry at Shanghaitex 2009 within the German Pavilion. The enterprise from Krefeld, Germany is well supported by their representatives AKM (based in Shanghai and Hong Kong), who have derived from Kuesters Far East and Kuesters Shanghai.
Andreas Lukas, Vice President of Andritz Küsters stated: "The two unique deflection controlled roll systems S-Roll and HyCon Roll are our core competence. Our clients get precisely the right calender technology their product needs."
With a maximum line force of 400 N/mm the teXcal s-roll with deflection control raises the bar to set new standards, especially in technical textiles, which require defined low air permeability such as parachute silk. Other deflection controlled calender systems with synthetic coatings are limited to a line force of 300 N/mm. The fabric needs multiple calendering, whereas the teXcal s-roll with especially adjusted surface technology can achieve best compaction results in just one passage, the company says.
Benninger offers solutions for important textile finishing processes and specializes in the continuous open-width treatment of fabrics and interlaced yarns.
With innovative process systems, the company increases efficiency and therefore provides customers with significant competitive advantages, whether with regard to increasing productivity, optimizing quality or ensuring ecological standards.
Major exhibits from Benninger include the Ben-Wash, a high washing effect with low water consumption; the Ben-Bleach, from grey cloth to full dyeing or print white; the Ben-Dimensa for precise mercerization; Ben-Colour that provides one-step dyeing technology; the Knit-Line offering knitware open-width concepts; and the system of Resource Management that helps users achieve zero discharge and hence environmental protection through waste water recycling and heat recovery.
Besides, Benninger tire cord and single thread installation impregnation systems are technologically mature, guaranteeing total reliability and the highest possible level of safety of the treated fabrics in the most diverse areas of application, the company says.
Presented by Brückner, the new Power-Frame stenter generation is characterized by the proven and patented Split-Flow air circulation system achieving an optimum temperature distribution across the complete dryer length and width. This is important for heat-setting processes and in the end decisive for the quality of the fabric. An easy reproducibility of production data is ensured with the Multi-Control Plus machine control, and more than 500 different recipes can be memorized. The preparation times are short and a uniformly high fabric quality with heat-setting processes is ensured.
With the newly developed energy-saving systems, Brückner achieved to make the stentering processes even more profitable, the company says. Additionally, the dryer concept newly designed by Brückner allows to increase the production output by up to 25% with an energy consumption that has been reduced simultaneously by 25%. The more intense combination of suction and air circulation allows a homogeneous drying across the fabric width / fabric thickness and thus an optimum fabric quality with the best achievable residual shrinkage, the company says.
High-grade Groz-Beckert circular knitting cylinders provide the ideal complement to the company premium range of needles and system components to create an ideal knitting system from a single, reliable supplier. The company says that it is only with the guarantee of a consistently high standard of component quality and outstanding durability that circular knitting machines are able to reach their full potential for high-performance operation on the factory floor. Customers are offered a selection of 60,000 knitting cylinders and around 50,000 different needles and system parts for the manufacture of textile surfaces.
