TexCoat G3, a precision application technology product from Baldwin Technology Company Inc., enables a sustainable textile and nonwoven finishing process with low energy consumption, reduced water and chemistry waste, and substantial savings of production time and costs. The product will be showcased during the ITM tradeshow, held in Istanbul April 14–17, 2018.
Launched in 2017, the innovative TexCoat G3 already has been installed at major textile finishing facilities worldwide, with proven positive results, including reduced:
• Water and chemistry usage, up to 50 percent
• Total changeover time, up to 85 percent
• Chemistry waste, up to 95 percent
“We are immensely proud to showcase the TexCoat G3 in Turkey, one of the leading markets for innovation and productivity in the textile industry,” said Simone Morellini, Baldwin Sales Manager-EMEAR.
This product line, the company says, provides customers with more flexibility, fewer production steps and increased uptime. With individual nozzle control and automatic volume adjustment, the TexCoat G3 ensures precise and uniform application in various process conditions and capacities. Adjustments can be set in relation to cloth width, g/m2 and textile characteristics, allowing for control of the amount of water and chemistry applied. Additionally, the TexCoat G3 is versatile, managing a wide range of low-viscosity chemistries—such as water-repellent, softener and anti-microbial finishing—as well as single- and dual-sided applications, various textile characteristics and wet-on-wet applications
Baldwin says that apparel producer HanesBrands recently invested in 19 TexCoat G3 systems from the company.
