Having only entered into the construction of the steam-heated drying cylinders for its denim and sizing lines as well as the third-party business in 2016, annual production at Karl Mayer Rotal increased substantially shortly thereafter. In December 2021 the 1,000 mark was cracked.
The Textile Drying Profit Center at Karl Mayer Rotal Srl, Mezzolombardo/Italy, has continuously developed know-how and invested in targeted automation upgrades in order to achieve the output leap. These measures have eliminated bottlenecks in the production chain and accelerated time-consuming production steps.
The company's drying cylinders have a special calibration process and exhibit absolutely round shapes and uniform wall thicknesses. This ensures very homogeneous heat transfer. An anti-adhesive coating developed in-house also makes universal use possible for a wide variety of applications. The coating is durable and meets all the requirements of the EU chemicals regulation REACH.
On the basis of these performance-optimized drying cylinders, the energy efficiency of the overall cylinder dryer system can be purposefully optimized for specific applications.
