The ShrinkTEX WK Series compressive shrinkage plants are designed for achieving dimensional stability on woven and open-width knitted fabrics.
They've a double function, first to shrink fabrics by giving them a dimensional stability before any further washing treatment and contemporarily to give the fabric the typical soft and velvety hand that can only be obtained by processing fabrics on rubber belt compressive shrinkage unit and felt calender (palmer).
According to production, speed and fabric weight, we build different types of shrinking plants.
The standard version is mainly rigged out with:
- input from rolled-up batches on A-frames or in plaited form from trolleys
- steaming roller
