Modern Textiles need Modern Heat (anglais)

Many different heating and drying processes are required during the manufacture and processing of textiles. High value, technical textiles must be fixed reliably and qualitatively,
coatings on fabrics and materials need to be dried as quickly as possible. The demands on heating systems are continuously increasing and heating processes must keep pace with
manufacturing processes. Infrared is a proven source of heat in textile processing, as infrared transfers high heating power in very short times. This helps to reduce energy consumption,
to increase production speeds and to lower production costs.

  • Heating

Infrared emitters can be individually controlled and respond within seconds, so that precise temperature profiles can be achieved.

  • Laminating

Infrared emitters transfer heat directly before lamination.

  • Activation of adhesives

Infrared heat ensures that adhesives are activated precisely where required.

  • Embossing

Infrared provides fast and targeted surface heating before embossing.

  • Coating

Choice of the correct infrared wavelength ensures effective drying of coatings.

  • Drying

Pre-heating prior to stenter speeds up production.

  • Thermofixing

Carbon infrared heats the material evenly and shortens the fixing section so that there is enough room for space-consuming High Distance Materials.

A versatile partner for home textiles

Fibres and yarns are dyed, carpets are coated on their reverse side, curtains or blinds are printed – and infrared technology is always there to help ensure that the required heating
process is carried out quickly and effectively. There is a broad spectrum of wavelengths, shapes and power outputs to choose from, the heating can be perfectly matched to product
and process. That saves on time, effort and operating costs!

  • Fabric webs heating before embossing
  • Needle-punched materials powder coating
  • Polypropylene fibres heating for melting/fusion
  • Cloth coating with neoprene and silicon
  • Thread and yarn drying of water-soluble inks
  • Blinds pre-heating prior to stenter
  • Thread and yarn drying with a slot emitter
  • Adhesives on carpets activation before lamination
  • Screen printing drying on textiles
  • Carpets are heated and then brushed
  • Reverse sides of carpets are heated to seal the latex backing
