Kusters Calico Machinery offers wet processing concepts for woven and knit fabrics. It has now come up with two new washing concepts, which will showcased at the forthcoming ITMA 2015 exhibition to be held in Milan, Italy. The super flush washer can handle sensitive woven fabrics from voiles to lycra. The flush master caters to requirements of pile fabric processing and print washing of tension-sensitive synthetic home furnishing fabrics with high twist yarns.
Both washers consume very little water. In the super flush washer, the combined washing effect of both horizontal as well as vertical washing produces a penetrative, diffusive and turbulent effect. The distance between the two fabric guiding rollers is very short. The tension control is through the load cell. The company opened in 1996. Kusters Calico currently exports around 70 per cent of its production to other countries.
The company is also expanding its business in coating and lamination technology. It is currently initiating factory expansion with a dust proof assembly shop to meet the growing demand and quality expectations of customers. This new expansion will help it deliver in shorter lead times and meet customer deadlines.
Kusters Calico, based in Gujarat, is a subsidiary of the German-based Jagenberg Group. Jagenberg caters to European markets and the OEM requirements of European machine manufacturers.
