German textile dyeing technologies manufacturer Thies GmbH & Co. KG will be presenting the latest product developments on stand C-106 in Hall 14 at ITMA 2015.
“Thies concentrates on sustainable product solutions and focuses on the development of innovative, intelligent and integrated concepts for yarn and piece dyeing,” a press release informed.
The new yarn dyeing machine, Icone is ideal for bleaching and dyeing fibres in different forms such as packages, warp beams, combed tops or flock.
The latest forms of flow analysis allow the piping system, the pump and the pump impellers to be optimised, reducing pressure losses and therefore lowering power consumption.
According to the company, Icone offers the ability to dye in a traditional manner using reciprocating liquor circulation or else to opt for ultra-short liquor circulation from one side only, and a liquor ratio of 1:3.6.
The machine is very practical as it can be matched to the requirements of each application, while the delivery spectrum of the Icone is complemented by the very latest, user-friendly control systems.
These integrate the in-house developed ‘green functions’ which provide users with standardised programs for exploiting the optimisation potential in different process steps.
Icone can be integrated without problems into existing dyeing houses and existing dryers and material carriers can be adapted after consultation.
Thies has further optimised the Imaster H2O machine and incorporates various new detail improvements, many of them developed in response to suggestions from customers and users.
At ITMA, Thies will also introduce the Imaster mini to the world for the first time and is a fully-equipped variation of the Imaster H2O able to be used with a load capacity of 20-80 kg for small production runs and laboratory work.
One of the objectives is to operate the Imaster mini using the same parameter settings as the Imaster H2O production version.
Testing and optimisation phase on the Imaster mini offers the possibility to incorporate new kinds of fabrics, recipes and processes in the production sequence more effectively and more cost-efficiently.
Another version for the treatment and finishing of light to medium-weight terry fabrics is the Imaster F and its chambers have capacities of up to 400 kg.
The soft-TRD SIII combines the perfect running conditions of the soft TRD SII with the latest short liquor ratio technology as with liquor ratios starting at 1:5, a variety of sensitive fabrics can be treated gently.
“The soft TRD III is ideal for finishing polyester fabrics because the machine is fitted with a high-performance temperature control system,” it informed.
