Saffron Invests In Fong’s TEC Series Dyeing Machines
Saffron already had been using Fong's Jumboflow dyeing machine. In November 2011, the company ordered its first TEC Series set including 300-kilogram (kg) Jumbotec2-1T, 750-kg Miditec2-3T and 400-kg Minitec2-2T models. Following installation, Saffron conducted trials on various fabrics that were dyed using the new machinery. According to Saffron Chairman Tomas de los Santos, the TEC Series offers a reduced liquor ratio; shortened salt preparation and injection time; an efficient and consistent rinsing process; reduced effluent and energy costs; increased flexibility in attaining improved loading efficiency, resulting from a range of machine capacities; easy-to-use controller; and ground-level machine operation.
Saffron subsequently placed three more orders for Fong's TEC Series.
