The Argentine textile industry is booming, which means a prosperous period for investment, increased production and therefore the creation of new jobs.
With 3 production plants, Texameri SA (Texcom), Buenos Aires/Argentina, manufactures knitted fabrics for a highly demanded market, where sports, technical, fashion and workwear fabrics stand out. With more than 100 circular knitting machines and a wide range of possibilities for rotary printing, sublimation, lamination as well as special finishes such as antibacterial or hydrophilic, the company produces premium sports and leisure wear. This includes the official jersey of the Argentinian national soccer teams, the white and sky-blue striped Albiceleste jersey.
Texcom has recently started up 2 new Brückner Power-Frame stenters for knitted fabric with 8 compartments and lubrication-free vertical chain and direct gas heating. This is already the 5th line purchased by Texcom from Brückner Textile Technologies GmbH & Co. KG, Leonberg/Germany.
High drying capacity and the technically proven split-flow ventilation system, the highly homogeneous air volume and temperature distribution due to countered thermos-zones were decisive. The low specific energy consumption of the direct gas heating and the maintenance-friendly components, such as the completely lubrication-free vertical circulating chain and width adjustment spindles, help to save production costs, especially in economically difficult times. Especially in the premium sector, the exactly reproducible finishing results due to full automation as well as recipe management of the line are appreciated.
Texcom’s own developments, such as Twintex, Polisap, Neodry, Sense, Texcom antibacterial, among other brands, are well suited for sports and leisure due to their technical attributes. The company attaches great importance to the fact that all processed materials have the appropriate current environmental certificate (Oeko-Tex Standard 100, bluesign and ZDHC). The efficient and responsible use of chemicals is also a matter of course.
