A small production machine the mini-soft bridges the gaps between research, laboratory and production.
With its extraordinary flexibility the mini-soft can be used for a multiplicity of purposes including research and development, quality assurance, laboratory trials, sample dyeings and small-scale production. Due to the high level of reproducibility and portability the results are easily applicable in regular production.
The mini-soft is available in both vertical (mini-soft E) and horizontal (mini-soft TRD)versions, and is the ideal machine for the wet processing of woven and knit fabrics produced from natural or man-made fibres and their blends. Designed to operating at up to 140°C and with a variable liquor ratio; starting at 1:6 (mini-soft E) or 1:12 (mini-soft TRD).
The convenient placement of the operating components and the floor level installation of the machine provide a user friendly and comfortable operating environment.
The mini-soft is shipped pre mounted on a compact base plate and is easily and quickly installed on site.
The nominal capacity, depending on the type of machine, ranging between 3-80 kg per tube. Mini-soft machines with a capacity of 30 kg, and above, can be supplied in a 2-tube design.
Optimum process control is ensured by the use of an industrial based PC, the extent of functions matching the requirements of the machine; ensuring an optimum process flow. More detailed information on Thies control systems is available on request.
