The machines of Thies Textilmaschinen GmbH & Co. KG, Coesfeld/Germany, for the treatment of technical textiles process a wide variety of yarns, fibers, nonwovens and fabrics suitable for various technical textile applications: for example aramid fibers which are used for security wear and top-end, bullet-proof automobiles.

The newly developed dyeing machine iCone treats yarns, fibers, flakes, cables, ropes and belts. The new technique enables dyeing in short fleet. Obtaining uniform dyes and the required fastness is self-evident. Due to the new energy-efficient (ee) functions iCone is able to color in a more cost effective and environmentally friendly way.
Another field of application is the discontinuous bleaching of cellulose fibers for medical purposes and/or any other fibers such as polyester, acrylic and polyamide.
Furthermore, the variety of iCone is reflected in the following areas of application: treatment of yarns, dyeing and bleaching of yarns for the production of solar sails, tents, awnings and finishing of hard-retardant yarns.
The HT-Jigger is used for dyeing fabrics, nonwovens or space fabrics in open width form. It offers stepless tension and material speed control with an economical dye trough. It has been designed to offer uniform dyeing in short liquor ratios.
Suitable to process textiles at temperatures up to 143°C, the HT-Jigger is recommended for the treatment of crease sensitive, permeable and non-permeable fabrics; to offer optimum flexibility for finishing of all modern fibers.
Key applications are the automotive sector with, for example, treatments of vehicle interiors or industrial sectors, which use filter materials.
For applications where water consumption is an important consideration, together with other possible energy savings including steam, electricity plus chemicals and dyestuffs, the well-established iMaster H2O dyeing machine is already proving successful with several automotive fabric producers. The notable process times of this dyeing machines facilitate higher production capacities.
The system features a transport winch inside the kier, allowing cotton, synthetic fibers and their blends, and including articles with a high elastane content, to be processed with significantly reduced elongation; resulting in fabrics with an improved stability whilst offering flexibility in the processing of a wide range of products.
Designed for the universal dyeing of wovens, knits and nonwovens, this 3rd generation of soft-TRD machines sets new standards in the efficient use of materials and resources. The soft-TRD SIII is able to handle crease and surface sensitive articles at fabric speeds of up to 600 m/min. The free material flow and low intensive transport zone, guarantee optimum relaxation and uniform treatment of the entire rope. The special design with its swimming material transport provides the finisher with increased flexibility in the processing of a wide range of fabrics and material weights.
The Multi Product Supply (MPS) system by Thies supplies dyeing and other finishing machines with chemicals, dyestuffs and textile auxiliaries. The individual design and the ideal synchronization are noteworthy.
To gain energy out of hot industrial wastewater is the aim of Thies’ heat recovery systems. Special tubular heat exchanger allow high efficiencies and low payback periods. Various modern types can be connected to these systems.
