Flexible finishing plants for always new applications

You are engaged in the production of fabrics/webs or threads/yarns - for always new applications and fields of application.

MES Finishing Plants will open up to you manifold upgrading methods enabling various different innovative product characteristics.

Economic finishing systems from the stage of development up to the start of production - designed and planned individually

Upgrading plants or finishing plants require more than mechanical engineering know-how. Our plant conception includes:

  • Process engineering consultation and analysis
  • Development, engineering and delivery
  • Customized finishing- and drying systems
  • Increase of quality and reduction of operating costs

This means, in particular, in detail:

  • Advanced overall concepts flexibly take into account the complete range of your product requirements and are thus especially economic.
  • In case of a correct design, finishing plants for solvent-containing productions are safe.

MES – The whole variety of web and yarn finishing

The development of an finishing plant will be usually performed in four steps:

  1. Characteristics of the webs/fabrics to be finished or yarns/threads to be taken into account, such as:
    1. Capillary hollow spaces between the filaments, which fill up with the coating medium during the finishing process
    2. Influence of the capillary diffusion speed of the solvent during drying
    3. Admissible tensions and temperatures
    4. Tensile and stretching attitude
  2. Take into account the influence of the characteristics of the coating medium , such as:
    1. Density
    2. Viscosity
    3. Type of solution
    4. Surface tension
    5. Explosion limits for solvents
  3. Work out Target and conception of functionalization- or finishing process , such as:
    1. Coating volume
    2. Surface-active coating through roller application, rake application or through impregnation into depth of fabric (padder equipment)
    3. Influencing of the tensile and stretching characteristics of the yarn
    4. Mitigation of the filament break and capillary faults
  4. Design of the finishing plant and of the drying process due to the characteristics determined:
    1. The process steps will determine the components.
    2. At the same time, the finishing components will be designed, so that they will cover a wide range of applications.
