Processing Solutions in the Printing & Textiles Industry

Drying, cooling and heating for textiles and printing

Air knife systems are used in the printing industry to provide rapid cooling and drying of inks after the printing process. In instances where prints are rolled or packaged the cooling effect of the air knives allows the rolling to take place almost immediately without fear of sticking or damage to the roll. The same is true of textiles, especially carpet manufacture and underlay which has molten rubber applied to the underside and must be cooled before rolling to prevent fusing of the material.

We have come across numerous applications where air knife solutions are perfectly suited to achieving the required results. Take a look at some of the case studies on the right hand side to see how we've helped our customers deal with a wide variety of processing issues.
