Monforts to launch new modular interchangeable coating system at ITMA Asia+CITME
German A. Montforts Textilmaschinen GmbH &KG is to unveil a new modular, patented interchangeable, coating system under the name of Montex-Allround for Technical Textiles at upcoming ITMA Asia + CITME (June 16 -20, 2014) in Shanghai, China at Hall W1, Booth A01
The new coating system ensures ease of adapting to the coating method required. The new patented concept provides the solution to integrate a wide variety of coating, printing and other innovative application techniques. The position of the coating head, for example, directly within the fabric in-feed of the stenter forms the shortest distance between the in-feed and the coating head, thus essential for high quality coating processes.
The Montex-Allround also features individual modules for knife and slot dye coating, as well as modules suitable for flexo, gravure and rotary screen printing. Integration of special modules, such as powder scattering and spraying is also possible. The modules are carried, cleaned and moved with a specially designed trolley which provides easy access to the side of the stenter infeed with minimum downtime.
An explosion proof cabinet for treating certain solvents is also available for the new modular unit, thus ensuring safe operation with the operator standing outside the enclosure.
