As
a German machinery producer, family owned and -operated since 1892, Thies will
present innovations in chemical dispensing, energy savings, and the coloration
of materials ranging from fibers to fabrics to 3D-printed parts at Techtextil –
which will be held at Raleigh, NC, from August 23-25, 2021. With innovations
that ensure quality, reduce manual labour, and conserve natural resources,
Thies is poised to support today’s pressing demands for sustainable
manufacturing.

 

Whether
its fiber, yarn or fabric dyeing, Thies’ machines utilise soft-flow mechanics
that help impart superior hand-feel and uniform appearance of the finished
fabric. In the case of fabric dyeing, pathways are shortened and contoured to
follow smooth profiles, minimising surface abrasion and tension. Likewise, yarn
dyeing machines incorporate gradual ramping of pressure within yarn packages
for uniform bulk and texture during dyeing and drying. The

result
is high throughput speeds without sacrificing end-product aesthetics and
quality.

 

With
labour shortages stifling the growth of domestic fabric producers, the drive
toward

automation
cannot happen fast enough. Thies offers a suite of labour-conserving options
that can be used in isolation or combination. Customised examples include
automated dye weighing, dissolving, and distribution; hands-free dispensing of
auxiliary chemicals to dye machines or blending tanks; and machine controls
that seamlessly tailor production parameters according to the textile quality
and lot size. Machines are optionally networked

for
ease of managing and monitoring production.

 

At
the core of Thies’ innovations is environmental stewardship of natural
resources. In addition to reducing water consumption, benefits include reduced
effluent, and up to 50% reduced TDS (total dissolved solids) in dye bath
effluent compared to conventional systems dyeing cotton. Furthermore, by
readjusting the used amount of electrolyte in the dyebath, it is

possible
to achieve higher dye fixation rates and thus use less dyestuff. Another
example is our energy recovery system reduces greenhouse gas emissions.
Dyehouses experience 20+% savings in energy cost, and often witness paybacks
less than twelve months. Thies is also enabling the use of electricity derived
from green energy sources (solar and wind) by designing machines that can,
optionally, be heated electrically rather than with steam

produced
by burning fuels.

 

The
bottom line is Thies gives manufacturers the tools and support needed to meet
today’s challenging demands for superior quality, lower cost, and a smaller
environmental footprint.
