A. Monforts Textilmaschinen, a leading textile machinery manufacturer, will be highlighting its recently introduced 7m working width Montex XXL stenter at the INDEX17 exhibition that will take place from 4-7 April in Geneva.

The Montex XXL wide width stenter has been specifically designed to meet the demand by the technical textiles and nonwoven industries, such as geotextiles for finishing wider width fleece and fabrics.

Heat distribution

Heat distribution is a key engineering element of the Montex XXL, requiring an even temperature distribution over the full 7m width and the distance from the fabric entry into the stenter through to the fabric exit.

Monforts CADstream nozzles for wide width working have been computer designed and are said to ensure the best even temperature distribution and the highest homogeneous airflow over the full width.

The new Montex stenter is also equipped with the proven Monforts TwinAir system for individual adjustment of lower and upper nozzle pressures. For heavier weight fabrics, a supporting belt can be fitted between the upper and lower nozzles of the stenter for mark-free fabric transport through the stenter.

Sustainability and energy savings

In keeping with Monforts commitment to sustainability and energy savings the Montex XXL features the integrated heat recovery system, fitted as standard on all new Montex stenters.

The system comprises a compact, air-to-air heat exchanger, which is installed within the roof structure of the stenter. The heat exchanger uses energy from the exhaust gas to preheat up to 60% of the incoming fresh air entering the stenter. Dependent on the production conditions, this provides energy savings of 10-35%, according to the manufacturer.


Monforts is a leader among the manufacturers and exporters of textile machines since 1884. Innumerable patents and pioneering achievements in textile finishing have marked the company’s way to today` s leading position in the market.

The manufacturer’s pioneering spirit is challenged and respected by industry leaders in continuous dyeing and textile finishing.
