Abstract

Various textile machinery producers especially in the dyeing sector have produced their latest offerings. The Vario Line Jigger, made to be power efficient, is built with roller widths up to 4000m and three different models for a maximum fabric diameter of 1000/12000/1400mm. Maino's Thor machines are high-speed washing-dyeing rotary machine designed to improve performance, versatility and reliability while reducing liquor ratio, maintenance and overall dimensions. Intertrad Group is a unique micro-dyeing machine, processing up to 30g of fabric sample, which simulates in an absolute way the exhaust bulk dyeing process. Sonotonic has developed a new dyeing and finishing process which borrows some idea from the printing process. The anilox rolls take over the liquids and transfer them to each side of the fabric. Other notable manufacturers include Ober-Maier, Brazzoli, Sclavos, Then air-low synergy, Atyc AND Bruckner.
