    • Baldwin introduces the Textile Spray Applicator to the Asian market

      - offering increased productivity and reduced chemical- and energy usage in Textile finishing

      Following last year’s successful introduction of the Textile Spray Applicator in Europe and the US, and with a constantly increasing demand for energy, water and chemistry savings, Baldwin now launches the new Industrial Spray Systems for Textile finishing and impregnation on the Asian market. The product will be presented at ITMA ASIA in Shanghai,
      October 21st-26th, 2016.

      The Textile Spray Applicator is a system that is designed to reduce the environmental footprint of the production and increase productivity, while also reducing the cost. The technology has been available in the printing industry for more than 30 years,
      with Baldwin being the market and technology leader with more than 40.000 installed units. Baldwin has now developed the technology to provide a system for the Textile market, ideal for applying chemistry to textile surfaces.  

      Compared to traditional methods, the new system offers many sophisticated benefits, one of the most significant ones being that the amount of chemistry and water that is applied can be substantially reduced. This not only saves on precious recourses, it will also reduce the amount of energy that is required to dry the textile after treatment. This will allow for significant energy savings and if the process allows, to increase the production speed.

      The quick change of chemistry also opens up for major productivity increases. In traditional methods, the change may take 15-30 minutes. With Baldwin’s Spray Applicator, the change will take less than 5 minutes. With multiple changes a day, customers have freed up hours of valuable production time every day.

      The system is equally suitable for wet on wet applications as for wet on dry.

      Per Stenflo, Vice President Product Line Spray, Baldwin
      “The feedback we have from the market confirms that the “green” profile of the Baldwin Spray Portfolio answers well to the trends in textile manufacturing. Our solutions will not only help companies reduce their environmental footprint, they will also present large opportunities for increasing production capacity and reduce chemistry use and energy that translate into substantial savings in production cost.”

      Baldwin also offers a range of Infra-Red, Hot Air and LED UV technologies, to accelerate the Drying and UV Curing of coatings on textiles, enabling increased line speed and introducing new applications, as well as surface Cleaning systems for textile surfaces and their manufacturing lines, which will allow higher automatization of the processes and reduce safety risks. Baldwin’s advanced filter technology will reduce waste of chemicals and water.
