The manufacturer of textile machinery Santex Rimar Group, Trissino/Italy, unites 6 brands with unique characteristics that will be present at 2 stands. Furthermore, all machines are ecofriendly in their own way.
The 2Fast high-speed weaving machine by Smit will be exhibited featuring 2Save, a weft tension control, that saves selvedge at both left and right sides of the woven fabric, realizing pick-by-pick sustainability through fabric waste reduction. In practice, 2Save saves between 50 and 80 mm of yarn at each pick.
Sperotto Rimar, Santex, Cavitec, Isotex and Solwa are all represented at the ITMA stand. A highlight will be the Isotex coating machine that guarantees high precision results, which goes hand in hand with waste reduction and environmental friendliness. The great flexibility of Isotex machines allows for experimenting and/or using sustainable compounds.
Santashrink, the tensionless shrinking and relax drying machine for tubular and open-width knitted fabrics is on show too. Compas embodies the compacting revolution with its unique system which exploits the use of a special belt with specific elasticity values. As water isn’t directly sprayed on the compacting belt there’s no water absorption by the processed fabric. The second plus regarding the use of water is the indirect rubber belt cooling with a totally unpolluted water recycling system.
The Cavimelt Pro multi-functional coating machine by Cavitec will be presented for the first time. The 2-in-1 machine features rapid switching between rotogravure and full-surface coating – based on hotmelt adhesive application – and delivers bonding performance with high quality.
