Fong, Germany based textile machinery manufacturer, will introduce its Then Smartflow TSF hydraulic high-temperature dyeing machine at the ITMA Barcelona trade fair for textile machinery, which takes place from 20-26 June.
The new designs of the machine minimizes the energy and water consumption rates available on the market for jet dyeing. The system features an achievable liquor ratios for a full load up to 300kg with a reduced kier volume and a liquor ratio down to 1:3.5 for cotton and 1:2.5 for synthetics.
Moreover, the machines are equipped with the patent pending Smartflow’s transport design. This is based on smart, winchless fabric transport system which eliminates the need for a loading rope, and a circular plaiter with programmable rotation speeds which provides full filling of the drop zone.
The chambers of the machine can accommodate variable loads in term of both weight and material type down to 40Kg for flexible processing. Each of the Smartflow TSF can be equipped with up to 8 chambers,in order to fully maximize productivity, while taking up to 40% less floor space than competing systems.
“The newly-developed nozzles and reel-less transport in combination with smart controlled circular plaiting and variable chamber adjustment provide even fabric treatment without entanglements and the highest loading capacity with the lowest kier volume.” – Richard Fander, Sales and Marketing Manager, Fong Europe
Also, it has the new bath preparation unit (BPU) and patented satellite tank. “As the process times of jet machines have been continuously optimised over the past few decades, they have required an increasing number of service tanks for dyes, auxiliaries and hot water, adding both expense and additional space requirements. Our new BPU and satellite tank, with its automatic dosing and mixing programme, working in combination with the THEN temperature management system, ensures the recipes are supplied in exact quantities, with dyes and auxiliaries well diluted and heated to the required temperature extremely rapidly,” added Fander.
This novelty allows fully reproducible processing with the optimized use of raw materials, water and energy, for perfect dyeing every time.Hydraulically driving the fabric without the use of a transport winch opens the door to reducing the tension during treatment and results in the highest relaxation of stretch and spandex fabrics
The machine will also be showcased at the Techtextil show in Frankfurt, Germany, from 14-17 May.
