Over 250 textile specialists attended Coating Solutions and Further Profitable Alternatives, the first webinar held by the manufacturer of textile machinery A. Monforts Textilmaschinen GmbH & Co. KG, Mönchengladbach/Germany, on October 21, 2020 specifically for companies in India.
The flexibility of the MontexCoat coating system, which allows users to exploit no less than 7 separate coating techniques, was outlined. This system provides opportunities to target a huge number of technical textile end-use markets. Various successful high-speed line configurations of the MontexCoat, the Eco Applicator minimum add-on unit and the Monforts padder, operating with Montex stenters, were explained and the opportunities for the retrofitting of existing lines with these technologies were explored.
Despite any current travel restrictions, the Monforts Advanced Technology Centre (ATC) is fully operational for industrial-scale trials which go beyond lab or pilot plant testing, to be run by experienced staff on behalf of customers. Since its opening in 2013, over €3 million has been invested in equipment at the Monforts ATC, which over an area of 1,200 m², houses 2 full finishing lines, engineered to accommodate an extremely diverse range of processes and based around the Montex stenter including high temperature and split temperature fabric treatment, in addition to a Thermex range for the continuous dyeing and the newly developed process of yarn dyeing.
