Baldwin Technology Company is showcasing its TexCoat G3 in Turkey for the first time during the ITM trade show in Istanbul next month. The innovative precision application technology product has been developed to enable a sustainable textile and nonwoven finishing process, with low energy consumption, reduced water and chemistry waste, and substantial savings of production time and costs.

Launched in 2017, the TexCoat G3 already has been installed at major textile finishing facilities worldwide. According to the manufacturer, some of the positive results include reduced water and chemistry usage, up to 50%, reduced total changeover time, up to 85%, and reduced chemistry waste, up to 95%.

“We are immensely proud to showcase the TexCoat G3 in Turkey, one of the leading markets for innovation and productivity in the textile industry,” said Simone Morellini, Baldwin Sales Manager-EMEAR. “We see great potential for our Precision Application Technology products in this region, and our goal is to help customers improve productivity, while saving valuable resources and contributing to a sustainable future.”

Flexibility and increased uptime

Baldwin’s Precision Application Technology product line aims to provide customers with more flexibility, fewer production steps and increased uptime. With individual nozzle control and automatic volume adjustment, the TexCoat G3 is said to ensure precise and uniform application in various process conditions and capacities. Adjustments can be set in relation to cloth width, g/m2 and textile characteristics, allowing for complete control of the amount of water and chemistry applied.

TexCoat G3 is also versatile, managing a wide range of low-viscosity chemistries – such as water-repellent, softener and anti-microbial finishing – as well as single- and dual-sided applications, various textile characteristics and wet-on-wet applications. It is also said to significantly reduce changeover times to less than five minutes, thanks to fully automatic flushing, and its mist containment covers encapsulate and prevent aerosols from escaping, securing a healthy working environment.

HanesBrands investment

A leading apparel producer HanesBrands recently invested in 19 TexCoat G3 systems from Baldwin. “We have had outstanding results in productivity increase, and we can clearly see that this technology will make a great contribution to our future efficiency and sustainability savings,” said Mike Abbott, HanesBrands Global Director of Research and Innovation.
