Thies Textilmaschinen, Germany’s leading company for textile machinery and dyeing machines, is set to participate in Techtextil 2017, international trade fair for technical textiles and nonwovens, to be held from May 9 to 12, 2017 at Frankfurt, Germany, in booth H3/F23, presenting its latest trends and innovation in technical textile applications.

The company will display special designed machines that can be used for a wide variety of fibres, nonwovens, yarns, and fabrics suitable for a multitude of technical textile applications.

Thies will show the well-established iCone that bleaches and dyes fibres, flakes, yarns, cables, and belts. The unique technique enables dyeing in short liquor as well. Obtaining uniform dyeing and the required fastness is self-evident. Using special energy-efficient functions, the iCone can dye in a more cost effective and eco-friendly way.
Cellulose fibres for medical purposes or any other substrate such as polyester, acrylic, and polyamide may be used in the machine. iCone can be used in the treatment of sewing threads, the dyeing and bleaching of yarns for the production of solar sails, tents, awnings, and the finishing of flame-retardant yarns.

The company will display the HT-Jigger used for dyeing fabrics, nonwovens or space fabrics. The HT-Jigger offers step less tension and speed control combined with an economical dye trough. It has been designed to offer uniform dyeing in very short liquor ratios. Suitable to process textiles at temperatures up to 143ºC, the HT-Jigger is recommended for the treatment of crease sensitive, permeable and non-permeable fabrics; to offer optimum flexibility for finishing of all modern fibres. Key applications are the automotive sector with treatments of vehicle interiors or industrial sectors, which use filter materials.

Thies will also show the iMaster H20 dyeing machine, ideal for all fabric applications where water consumption is an important consideration, together with other possible energy savings including steam, electricity plus chemicals and dyestuffs. The iMaster H2O dyeing machine is proving successful with several automotive fabric producers. The notable process times facilitate competitive high production capacities.

The system features a transport winch inside the kier, allowing cotton, synthetic fibres and their blends, and including articles with a high elastane content, to be processed with significantly reduced elongation; resulting in fabrics with an improved stability whilst offering flexibility in the processing of a wide range of products.

The company will also present the new generation of soft-TRD SIII designed for the universal dyeing of wovens, knits, and nonwovens. The soft-TRD SIII machine sets new standards in the efficient use of materials and resources. The free material flow and low tension in the transport zone, guarantee optimum relaxation, and uniform treatment of the entire fabric rope. (GK)
