When the latest line has been put into operation, a total of 7 Brückner stenters will produce high-quality knitwear at Arikan in Turkey. Especially for very fine and elastic fabric, special line configurations and technological know-how are necessary to be able to produce a high-quality end product.

During the drying and heat-setting process, for example, very accurate and uniform temperature distribution over the entire length and width of the dryer is essential. In the stenter machine from Brückner Textile Technologies GmbH & Co. KG, Leonberg/Germany, this is achieved, among other things, by the alternating arrangement of the thermal zones every 1.5 m and by the proven split-flow air system.

Furthermore, the very good accessibility of the line for maintenance and cleaning is also a plus point. In addition, significant energy savings can be achieved with just a few changes to the machine parameters. Sophisticated software provides machine operators with valuable information for this purpose.

The family-owned company Arikan Mensucat Industry and Trade Inc., Kahramanmaraş/Turkey, employs around 1,500 people and finishes around 55 tons of knitwear every day. Talks are already in progress for another Brückner line which will include a very special feature: a combined heating system for the dryer. Here it is possible to use steam energy for heating up the dryer and thus to achieve distinguishable savings.
