Monforts at Techtextil India with technical textiles solutions. Monforts Textilmaschinen GmbH & Co. KG KG will take place at Techtextil India, which will be held at the Bombay Exhibition Center in Bombay from November 20 to 22. The company will make a detailed presentation of their extensive range of coating and finishing technologies for the production of nonwovens and technical textiles at their booth No 4 in Hall 4.
Hans Wroblowski, Monforts Textilmaschinen Head of Denim, said India is still a very important market for Monforts, and continued his words saying; “There are exciting prospects ahead for Indian manufacturers of technical textiles, who are well positioned to capitalise on growth opportunities. India has one of the largest working-age populations in the world and a complete textile value chain for both natural and synthetic fibres”.
In addition, he added that India’s government, through its Ministry of Textiles, has been actively promoting the growth of technical textiles through various programmes based on investment promotion, subsidies, and the creation of infrastructure and the stimulation of consumption. As a result, India’s Ministry of Textiles is forecasting that the growth of technical textiles in the country will be over 18% annually in the next few years, from a value of 16.6 billion USD in 2018 to 28.7 billion USD in 2021.
Monforts at Techtextil India: high added value in finishing
High value-added technical products such as wide-width digital printing substrates, carbon fabrics for high-performance composites, filter media, flame retardant barrier fabrics and heavy-duty membranes can now be coated on Monforts texCoat ranges and finished with the company’s industry-leading Montex stenters.
“Since we acquired the technology that our coating units are based on in 2015; we have made a lot of refinements,” said Hans Wroblowski; “All of these developments are reflected in higher coating accuracy and the resulting quality of the treated fabrics. At the same time, our latest multi-functional coating heads offer an unprecedented range of options; with a wide range of modules available”.
The texCoat user interface is now equipped with the unique Monforts visualisation system; and the magnetic doctor blade has greater power reserves. Options include a carbon fibre-reinforced composite coating drum with a more scratch-resistant surface; and maximum rigidity and remote control which simplifies exact adjustment for the operator.
Montex stenters in special executions are meanwhile ideal for the drying and finishing of both technical woven fabrics and nonwovens; and characterised by high stretching devices in both length and width.
Hans Wroblowski said that the European-built Montex range of stenters has earned its leading position in the technical textiles market; due to the overall robustness, reliability and economy of these machines and concluded saying; “Whatever the intended end-product – and we continue to discover potentially new areas; in which technical textiles can be utilised all the time; we have the machine specification and know-how to turn ideas into reality. In India we also benefit from the strong sales and service support of A.T.E. Enterprises”.
