A.Monforts Textilmaschinen has opened a massive new Advanced Technological Centre (ATC), which occupies a 1500m2 area in a complete hall at the company’s headquarters in Blumenberger Strasse, Mönchengladbach. The ATC will allow customers in-house opportunities to undertake trials on Monforts dyeing and finishing machines under fully confidential, real production conditions.

The new ATC includes comprehensive test facilities, where dyeing and finishing trials can be performed with the customers own knitted, woven or nonwoven fabrics or technical textiles, under full working conditions.

Using the results from these trials, Monforts says it will also be able to make recommendations for improving fabric finishes.

The hall includes a full Thermex continuous dyeing range suitable for the Econtrol process; a Montex 6500 stenter with a vertical chain return and equipped with Eco Applicator; and a Montex 8000 stenter for technical textiles – incorporating Eco Applicator, high temperature and an explosion-proof execution for treating fabrics with solvents.

The new facility represents a €2.5 million investment, including the installation of a steam generator and complete utilities including a colour kitchen and fabric laboratory testing equipment.

Monforts technologists are available for comprehensive customer’s advice on all aspects of dyeing and finishing for classical and technical textiles providing full assistance for economic and ecologic processes.

Training courses are also available for machine operators to run the machines under minimum use of dyestuff and energy input for best value added finishing results.

The new hi-tech, world class facility is, Monforts says, another example of its policy to fully support its customers in achieving the best possible solutions in finishing its fabrics efficiently under ecological and economical conditions.
