The performance of fishing nets increases with the works at Monforts ATC
Monforts continues to work on innovative technical textiles and finishing at the Advanced Technology Center (ATC) in Mönchengladbach, Germany. The cultivation of both freshwater and saltwater fish populations under controlled conditions is a global industry valued at around $200 billion annually with a big potential. The nets used in this global industry, for both fresh and salt water, are of great importance. A number of R&D studies are carried out in Monforts ATC aiming to increase the performance of the fishing cage nets used in aquaculture.
Jürgen Hanel, Head of Monforts Technical Textiles, points out that these nets are very prone to biofouling. Hanel commented: “High-pressure robotic jets are now used to clean them. Net cleaning is expensive and can also damage current antifouling coatings on the nets, causing contamination as well as fish health and welfare risks”.
Noting that the abrasion resistance of the nets is also extremely important, Hanel disclosed that in addition to the general wear and tear of the underwater environment, they also contain a lot of potential food for predatory bigger fish, such as sharks. Hanel; “Even sea lions have been known to be attracted to these fish farming cages, but have the advantage of being able to jump over the top of them if they’re not sufficiently protected”.
Finishing news: how functional can a fabric be with 3XDRY?
Today, the demand for versatility in the apparel is growing rapidly. Whether it is for sports or leisure purposes, it is shaped as the basic expectation for the apparels is that they perform various functions. These functional features, which are generally seen in work and safety clothes, are now reflected in sports and daily wear. The increase in demand not only for stretch fabrics, but also for high performance textile products in every category leads to significant improvements in this regard. Swiss-based fabric manufacturer Schoeller Textil AG does not only offer comfort and style fabrics to its customers. The company also offers technologically advanced products that are breathable, water and dirt repellent with the 3XDRY technology.
3XDRY finishing technology from schoeller allows the exterior of a textile to be water repellent, while the inside absorbs moisture and quickly distributes it over the surface. As a result, textiles with 3XDRY dry much faster in comparison to conventional textiles. This ensures increased wellbeing during all activities.

Half a century of excellence in home textiles
50th anniversary for Monforts customers. The origins of both Industry 4.0 and an awareness of the need for more sustainable manufacturing methods can arguably be traced back to the year 1971. It was in 1971 that the first microprocessor was introduced by Intel; and also that the first and perhaps now most well-known environmental campaigner, Greenpeace, was founded. As such, a direct line can be charted from that year to today’s automated textile manufacturing machinery concepts, as well as the drive to develop more increasingly resource-efficient processes.
All of the recent innovations which have been introduced to the market by A. Monforts Textilmaschinen GmbH & Co. KG, for example, are being powered by the possibilities of Industry 4.0; and developed in response to the market demand for more sustainable production. They include the new ‘digital twinning’ capability introduced in 2019 for all Monforts machines; with advanced sensor technologies which make it possible to access comprehensive technical machine data from any location; using the company’s Smart Support and Smart Check apps. In addition, the digital twin system provides information on individual wear parts, such as, for example, converters or gears.
These latest developments have been very favourably received by Monforts customers, especially in Europe.
