Coating Trials Available At Monforts Showroom

By adding a coating device in front of a Montex 6500 tenter at the newly renovated showroom at its Mönchengladbach, Germany, headquarters, A. Monforts Textilmaschinen GmbH & Co. KG now offers fabric-coating trials — possibly a first for a machine manufacturer, the company reports.

The coating device features knife-over-air and knife-over-roller capabilities, and a working width of 220 centimeters. Coating processes — including paste or foam and high-temperature applications at up to 310°C — are possible for a variety of fabrics including wovens, knits and fleece.

To optimize process flow, the rail-mounted device may be moved directly to the infeed roller of the tenter, which features a retractable operator’s platform.
