Orsa Installs Second Monforts Tenter
Orsa S.r.l., Italy, a manufacturer
of spunlaced nonwovens for a range of niche markets, recently installed its second
tenter from Germany-based A. Monforts Textilmaschinen GmbH & Co. KG. Ordered through Sacconaghi
Monaco S.r.l., Monforts’ local representative, the Montex
tenter features seven chambers
and a working width of 3.2 meters. Orsa installed its first Monforts tenter in 2000 to use for special finishing processes. It is using the new Montex tenter to dry printed and dyed products and to ensure uniform color.
According to Valter Gatti, head of Orsa’s overall strategic planning, the new tenter improves the hand of Orsa’s nonwovens and imparts uniform visual aspects. “[Tentering] is the only way to guarantee the required qualities and we have stayed with Monforts because of both the quality and productivity of their machines,” he said.
