United States-based Navis TubeTex, a designer and producer of textile finishing equipment, reports
it recently shipped machinery to companies in Bangladesh and Pakistan.
Bangladesh-based Meghna Knit Composite Ltd. purchased a Pak Nit SP Tubular Compactor
featuring a production speed of more than 50 meters per minute (m/min) and a compaction rate of 25
percent. Meghna selected the technology in part because Navis TubeTex operates a sales, service and
spare parts center in Dhaka, Bangladesh.
Pakistan-based Al-Abbas Fabrics (Pvt.) Ltd. selected a latest-generation TM-100 Open Width
Compactor from Navis Tubetex. The purchase includes a pin tenter entry, edge gluing, selvage drying
and a high-speed exit; and is the first TM-100 unit to be installed in Pakistan. The machine
operates at more than 40 m/min, and offers a compaction rate of 25 percent as well as energy
savings of 25 percent.
