The new Montex finishing range by Monforts has a working width of two meters.
The range draws on all of the latest advances and technical expertise of Monforts gained from countless installations around the world. It allows customers to pigment dye, direct coat and pad apply finishes and offers more scope for R&D. The precise process control functions of the line give technicians confidence to make new products as well as finely tune the energy requirements of existing products. It is possible to record the energy used on each production batch and use this for continual improvements and efficiency savings. The touchscreen software is visual and easy to use, moving from one screen to another to check the various parameters of processing.
Many refinements have been made to the Montex Coat in the past few years, resulting in higher coating accuracy and better quality of the treated fabrics.
Monforts is the only manufacturer to offer completely integrated coating lines from a singlesource and the coating machine is tailored to the subsequent Montex drying technology – with all the benefits resulting from fully integrated plc control. The advancement of the technology on the Montex has been vast, especially in burner and air extraction. The machine is also very robust, especially the chains, which need very little lubrication and will last a long time. It is possible to quickly move from a 100gsm fabric to a 600gsm fabric, with no requirement to adjust tensions.
