Baldwin Technology Company, Inc. will be showcasing its state-of-the-art Spray Applicator at Techtextil Frankfurt, from 9-11 May (hall 3.0, booth G82).

Launched in 2015, the Spray Applicator is currently installed major textile finishing facilities worldwide, with proven positive results, the company says:

• Reduced water and chemistry usage, up to 50%

• Reduced total changeover time, up to 85 %

• Reduced chemistry waste, up to 99 %

The Spray Applicator’s individual nozzle control and automatic volume adjustment ensure precise and uniform finishing in various process conditions and production capacities.

“Because the exact amount of chemistry is applied in relation to cloth width, g/m2 and textile characteristics, no unnecessary energy or chemistry is wasted. Plus, changeover times are significantly reduced, thanks to fully automatic flushing,” Baldwin says.

Compared to traditional application methods, with changeovers of 15-30 minutes, Baldwin’s Spray Applicator is said to execute the same chemistry change in less than 5 minutes.

Furthermore, Baldwin claims, the Spray Applicator can manage a wide range of low-viscosity chemistries, single and dual sided applications and various textile characteristics, as well as wet-on-wet applications, which are performed without any contamination from other chemistry sources.

The Spray Applicator’s mist containment cover is said to encapsulate and prevent aerosols from escaping, ensuring a healthy working environment.

“With the ‘Sprayvolution’ concept, we are well prepared to meet the textile industry’s increasingly high environmental demands,” said Per Stenflo, Vice President, Spray, at Baldwin. “The Spray Applicator is a revolutionary product, and a small investment that will pay off in a short period of time for our customers. We are very proud to showcase it at Techtextil.”

Baldwin Technology Company, Inc. is a leading manufacturer and supplier of process-automation equipment and related consumables for the printing, packaging and other industrial segments, including technical textiles, chip and fiberboard, and film extrusion.

Baldwin offers its customers a broad range of market-leading technologies, products and systems that enhance the quality of industrial-produced products, with a focus on improving the economic and environmental efficiency of the production process. As a total solutions provider, Baldwin not only offers new equipment to its customers, but also dedicates extensive resources to maintaining and servicing existing equipment.
