Scientifically Engineered Textile Machines (SETeMa), the Netherlands, has introduced the Portafix
Universal sample/coupon/continuous steamer designed for the fixation of textile dyes.
Suitable for all types of fabrics, dyestuffs, and printing processes, as well as natural and
man-made fibers, the Portafix can be used for the fixation of samples and continuous roll-to-roll
curing. The machine heats up in less than 30 minutes. An optional auto-start feature ensures
production readiness at a set time. The Portafix, made of stainless steel 316, is compact, mounted
on wheels and easy to install, according to the company. Three versions with machine lengths of 3,
6 and 9 meters are available.
