Benninger: Incorporating  traditional with modern

In this ITMA, Benninger is celebrating its 160th anniversary. This anniversary stands primarily for 160 years of commitment to textiles, but also for 160 years of responsibility towards sustainable textile production. Thanks to consistent innovation and the continuous improvement and further development of our products, processes and services, for the past 160 years the name Benninger has stood for textile finishing plants that are particularly resource-efficient.

At this year’s ITMA Barcelona, Benninger will be presenting its latest developments:
  • The Benninger-Küsters CPB dyeing centre for knitwear and woven fabrics - the only salt-free cold dyeing process
  • The TEMPACTA washing steamer for knitted fabrics with freshwater supply that is controlled by the degree of contamination
  • The TRIKOFLEX drum washing machine that is available up to a working width of 5,400 mm. In addition, a specially developed expander roller for sensitive fabrics will be exhibited.
  • BENNINGER – Küsters Multipad - the new development for complex impregnation tasks on woven fabrics and knitwear with electronically monitored, automatic lubrication

Salt-free dyeing of woven fabrics
Salt-free dyeing without the use of energy is only possible using the cold pad batch (CPB) dyeing process. This process is also becoming increasingly popular in tropical and subtropical regions, which is reason enough for Benninger-Küsters to adapt the CPB systems even more effectively to the climatic conditions. The heart of our CPB system is the BENNINGER KÜSTERS DYPAD, which we will also be presenting again this year at the ITMA Barcelona. BENNINGER is the only textile machine manufacturer with the know-how of the original S-roller technology, which is synonymous with an even dyeing result across the entire fabric width.

Contamination-dependent washing
The TEMPACTA washing steamer has been especially developed for all low-tension washing processes and is mainly used for diffusion washing (fastness washing). The unit has a consistent counterflow water supply. Online measurement of the degree of contamination regulates the necessary amount of fresh water in order to a.) guarantee the lowest possible water and energy consumption and b.) ensure a high reproducibility of the washing result.
