Sono-Tek Sells WideTrack Coater For Textile Use

Sono-Tek Corp., a Milton, N.Y.-based supplier of ultrasonic spraying and coating systems, has sold a WideTrack ultrasonic coater to a major textile manufacturer to replace a traditional finishing line used to apply a range of finishes to fabric. The  system — which features ultrasonic non-clogging, self-cleaning nozzles; a computerized control system; and an integrated pumping system — is the first sold for a textile application.

“Sono-Tek’s WideTrack Textile Coater offers the textile industry a key advantage in competing with offshore manufacturers by saving them energy and chemicals in the application of performance finishes,” said Dr. Christopher L. Coccio, CEO and president, Sono-Tek. “ There is an added environmental benefit in that less chemical and water use means less clean-up afterwards, and a smaller carbon footprint.” He also noted that the system allows the manufacturer to apply different coatings to each side of a fabric.
