United States-based textile finishing machinery manufacturer Navis TubeTex reports that Tamteks
Tekstil, Turkey, has installed a TM-100 open-width compactor for its production needs.
According to Navis TubeTex, the TM-100 offers good shrinkage control for knits, particularly
for lightweight and heavyweight viscose fabrics. The machine processes 100-percent viscose fabrics
at 30 meters per minute, controlling shrinkage to less than 4 to 5 percent. It also controls
shrinkage in other hard-to-control, sensitive fabrics to less than 3 percent.
Navis TubeTex offers the TM-100 with an operator touchscreen in Turkish, and also offers
local service support for the machine. The company reports it will be installing two more machines
in Turkey by the end of this year.
