Shelton CTI Develop Elastane Relaxation System

Shelton, CTI DevelopElastane Relaxation SystemCollaboration between Shelton Machines Ltd. and CTI, both based in the United Kingdom, has resulted in a new on-line relaxation system for elastane fabrics. The Shelton C-Tex Fabric Relaxation system allows consistent finished length and width measurement of elastic fabrics during processing. The system was developed in response to the desire of Textured Jersey, a British manufacturer of fabrics containing elastane, to supply completely relaxed fabric to its customers. It combines on-line inspection and CTIs C-Tex relaxation® technique of air flotation fabric relaxation in a single machine. Textured Jersey has purchased several of the machines. Shelton and CTI have applied jointly for a worldwide patent for the technology.July 2002
