Soodo Completes Thies Dyehouse Installation

Korea-based Soodo Knitting and Dyeing Co. has installed two new Germany-based Thies GmbH & Co.
Luft-roto plus dyeing units — a 540-kilogram (kg)-capacity three-tube unit, and 720 kg-capacity
four-tube unit — completing its 100-percent Thies-equipped dyehouse. In addition to the new
machines, the dyehouse includes eight soft-TRD DS XL machines, two Luft-roto plus machines, an
MPS-L chemical dosing system, MPS-D dyestuff dissolving system, and an OrgaTex dyehouse control

The latest installation, supplied through Thies’ local dealer, Korea Illies
Engineering Co., will help increase Soodo’s production of sportswear, T-shirts, and swimwear
containing spandex and microfibers by up to 20 tons per day.
