F-Max

F-Max


 

The new F-Max takes the current trend of Textile Spray Finishing to new heights. The F-Max is perfect for applying low viscosity water-based finishing chemistry. As with all imogo products the F-Max perfectly combines sustainability with productivity, quality and savings. The F-Max carry many of the features from “big brother” Dye-Max. Both the pre moistening station and the finishing station use the patented stainless-steel Pro Speed valve. This gives unmatched production reliability.


The pre-moistening station applies a controlled amount of water or moistening chemistry to the fabric. This conditions the fabric to receive the finishing chemistry in a very efficient way.


An important feature is that all over-spray is collected, filtered and feed back to the process. This solution is essential in minimizing waste during production. The small buffer tank limits the waste at changeover to a few litres of mixed finishing chemistry.


Workers safety has been on top of the agenda when developing the F-Max. The sealed spray chamber is equipped with an exhaust system and an aerosol liquid separator. 99.9% of aerosol particles are caught in the separator and will not reach the work environment.  


The F-Max can be configured with customized reel stands to produce treated rolls ready for the next process step. The F-Max can just as easily be configured for integration in an existing stenter line.


In standard configuration the F-Max comes with one pre-moistening station with a separate pump line and a finishing station with one supply line. Additional supply lines are optional and can also be retrofitted at a later date. 


F-Max will generate savings in multiple fields. Most important are:

  • Chemistry
  • Energy
  • Waste


Just as important are the substantial productivity improvements that can be achieved. These consist of:

  • Increased production speed
  • Shorter change-over times
  • Increased consistency and quality


In combination with the Mini-Max, recipes and application volumes can be tested and optimized offline. This provides opportunity to maximize production up-time and avoid quality problems.


imogo Dye-Max spray application unit

Application unit


The Dye-Max application unit is a closed chamber where the finishing chemistry is applied by high preformance spray valves.

The spray casettes consists of precision nozzles for accuracte and consistent coverage in combination with the patented imogo pro speed valve that controls the volume applied. The chamber is equipped with an exhaust system and droplet separator to ensure that the environment around the unit is free from sprayed particles.

Spray casettes


The spray casettes are a key part in the F-Max. F-Max features one chemistry feed-line with an option to expand to three separate feed-lines with dedicated spray casettes. The casettes are easily exchanged without the need for tools. The exchange is done in less than a minute. The quick exchange allow for fast change-over between different chemistry. Due to that the spray casettes are removable all maintenance can be performed off line.
