Navis TubeTex, a global leader in finishing machinery for the textile industry, has launched TubeSet which is the latest innovation in heat setting machinery for tubular knit synthetic-blend greige fabric.
The company says that TubeSet efficiently heat sets tubular knit greige fabric with synthetic content, eliminating the need for open-width processing. Additionally, TubeSet provides improved machine efficiencies and increased fabric utilisation with a reduction in operating costs.
With this new machinery, Navis TubeTex aims to assist its customers in reducing production expenditures by more than 25 per cent, and significantly minimising the plant footprint with its reduced size, versus operations with open-width finishing.
With a positive ROI of less than 6 months, manufacturing operations reach a quick time to value.
Will Motchar, CEO and President of Navis TubeTex and its companies, commented, “We have taken the market disruption during COVID-19 as an opportunity to engineer new technologies and meet industry demands. Our dedication to advanced engineered solutions continues to support automation in the manufacture of tubular textiles.”
Like all Navis TubeTex technologies, TubeSet is also Industry 4.0 compliant.
Navis is set for deliveries of this new machinery during second quarter of 2021 as all final testing has been done.
