BRUCKNER – KRAUS TEXTILVEREDLUNG IN ROTTENBURG – A CONTRACT FINISHER WITH GREAT POTENTIAL

The company Kraus Textilveredlung in Rottenburg, established in 1959 and taken over by Elmar Kraus in 2005, dyes, bleaches and finishes since more than 60 years a wide variety of fabrics for well-known textile producers. With great passion the owner directs the textile company at the Neckar river together with his wife, his son and currently 23 employees. 

The structure of the textile industry has changed considerably in recent years. Today, the requirements of the end customers are completely different than 10 or 20 years ago. Fashion gets faster and faster and often several collections are presented each year. The manufacturers’ product range is much wider than before and the trend gets more and more towards functionalization and high-quality textiles made of different fibre blends. This presents enormous challenges also to KRAUS TEXTILVEREDLUNG. In order to react even more flexible in future and to supply at the same time high quality, Elmar Kraus recently invested in a new stenter made by BRÜCKNER and is very satisfied: “The decision for BRÜCKNER was made for several reasons. On the one hand I felt very competently advised and attended during the whole offering phase and the BRÜCKNER technology is simply mature. Beside the reliable and qualified staff, the machine technology is just as decisive for a company’s success. In the end, of course, also the geographical proximity to BRÜCKNER played an important role”.

A two-stage heat-recovery and exhaust air cleaning system also made by BRÜCKNER is integrated in the new stenter. The exhaust air heat of the stenter can be used by KRAUS TEXTILVEREDLUNG to heat up fresh water. This covers a part of the warm water requirements of the washing, bleaching and dyeing ranges in the company. The exhaust air purification system cleans the remaining cooled exhaust air so that more than 90 % of all aerosols are removed from the exhaust air. For the residents this means no visible smoke from the chimney and no odour nuisance.

Every day around 3.5 tons of fabric for clothing, underwear and wellness are finished at KRAUS, about half of which are already processed by the new stenter. As soon as the integration of a new automatic batcher is completed, the capacity will be increased further. The new line allows a clearly faster processing than the existing stenter frames. Productivity has increased by approx. 25%, of course while maintaining the same high fabric quality. The finished articles are mainly knitwear made of cotton-polyester or cotton-polyamide blends with or without elastane, but Kraus Textilveredlung also finishes pure cotton or wool or silk blends for its customers. Despite the constant challenges and the currently somewhat weakening economy, Elmar Kraus is optimistic about the future.

World leading trade fair for nonwovens

New date!
20 – 23 October 2020
Geneva, Switzerland

Event-Website »

INDEX 2020 postponed Mahlo at leading trade fair for nonwovens now from October 20 to 23

Mahlo GmbH + Co. KG will be presenting product solutions for high-quality and efficient nonwovens production at Index 2020 from October 20 to 23 in Geneva, Switzerland. On booth 47229 you can see, among other things, the latest sensor development for the established quality measurement system Qualiscan QMS-12.

Nonwovens are used in almost every industrial sector and are becoming increasingly important: filter nonwovens ensure clean drinking water, the health sector relies on nonwovens for infection protection, and extremely durable geotextiles play an important role in the construction of dams. No matter what tasks the nonwoven products perform, their functionality must always be 100% guaranteed. However, this can only be achieved if every production step runs flawlessly and all specifications developed in advance are fulfilled. Important parameters in the manufacturing process are weight per unit area, moisture or layer thickness. With its established system solutions, Mahlo can determine these values reliably and without contact. In this way, the German machine manufacturer helps manufacturers and finishers to achieve first-class quality standards and maximum efficiency in production.

The modular system, which also includes sensors and measuring frames, measures, records and controls critical parameters such as basis weight, moisture or layer thickness across the entire width of the fabric. Depending on the application and task, different measuring methods are used for this purpose. Among others, there is a choice of X-ray and beta radiation, white light interference or near-infrared measurement. The latter also uses the latest technical development from Mahlo: as the Infralot IMF-T version, the basis weight and moisture sensor also uses the transmission method for the first time when measuring. This makes it the ideal solution for thicker materials up to 500 g/m². In addition, in contrast to conventional methods, it completely dispenses with a rotating filter wheel. With Mahlo’s newly developed simultaneous filter, all wavelengths are measured simultaneously and at the same point. Instead, the light is distributed simultaneously to six detectors. This eliminates measurement inaccuracies and enables true seed-spot measurement of reference and absorption resonances.

Visitors to the Index will find further solutions, tailored to their needs and requirements, from the Mahlo experts at booth 4229.

Mahlo at Open House in Bangladesch

 

First-hand information for the textile industry : 

Lecture by Mahlo at the Tootal Open HouseHow do I produce sustainably, with high quality and yet economically? These questions are also being asked by the textile industry in Bangladesh, one of the world’s strongest markets. They were answered at an open house of the textile machinery supplier Tootal Quality Resources Ltd in Dhaka at the beginning of the year.

Together with six other partners, the German machine manufacturer Mahlo GmbH + Co KG presented innovative and sustainable production methods to the 250 or so decision-makers from the local textile industry who were present.

The “who is who” of the textile industry in Bangladesh

Together with its partners Mahlo, Brazzoli, Cubotex, Ferraro, Hohenstein Institute (OekoTex), Mario Crosta, and Bangpoo Chemicals, Tootal had designed an interesting and informative program for its guests – the “who’s who” of the industry. The interplay of current developments and green technology were the dominant themes. For Mahlo GmbH, Sales Manager Thomas Höpfl and Area Sales Manager Adnan Andac presented ways in which control systems in production improve overall performance and profit. “Textile producers are confronted with many challenges such as sustainability, various consumer demands, increased quality requirements or rising costs for raw materials and personnel”, said Höpfl.

Meeting all these requirements is demanding and time-consuming. The solution: data-based textile production based on the principles of Industry 4.0. “Without a coupling of machinery, information transparency and technical support, sustainable production is no longer possible”. For practical implementation, the think tank from Bavaria has developed the mSmart digitization concept. Its system modules – including the control room software mPilot and the data analysis tool mLog – enable the machines to communicate with each other and guarantee the machine operator full transparency of the data.

In their presentation Höpfl and Andac also showed which process control systems Mahlo uses to make the processes around the stenter frame traceable and thereby controllable. “Safety margins are thus a thing of the past. Your production gains in performance, quality and profit,” the experts from Saal told the audience.

Intensive discussions

The expert audience listened attentively to the technical presentations of all speakers and then used the opportunity for intensive discussions. The Open House thus fulfilled the organizers’ goal of providing a networking platform where entrepreneurs, industry experts and scientists can exchange their insights on technology trends. An entertaining supporting programme between the presentations with laser show, folklore dancers and music provided a light-hearted atmosphere and kept the attention high.

In addition, action islands with games such as a golf simulator or wheel of fortune created a suitable setting for informal discussions. “We were enthusiastic about the event and would like to express our special thanks to Tootal Quality Resources, who created a forum for customers and partners in such a pleasant way”, Höpfl concluded.
