The main role and purpose of the stenter

Jul 11, 2018

In the process of fabric production and processing, it is often necessary to carry out tenter finishing. The so-called tenter finishing is to use the tenter setting machine to utilize the plasticity of cellulose, silk, wool and other fibers under wet conditions, gradually widen the fabric width to a specified size and dry it, so that the fabric shape can be obtained. Stable process, it is also called finishing.


We know that before weaving the various types of fabrics, they tend to undergo warp, dyeing, etc., often subjected to warp tension, forcing the warp direction of the fabric, zonal shrinkage, and other disadvantages. Such as uneven width, uneven edges, rough feel, flat with aurora and so on. In order to make the fabric have a uniform and uniform stable door width, and at the same time, it can improve the above-mentioned shortcomings and reduce the deformation of the fabric during the taking process. Generally, after the dyeing and finishing process is basically completed, the fabric needs to be stretched and trimmed by a tenter setting machine.


In the process of operating the tenter setting machine, the process parameters that need reasonable control include: temperature, constant width, falling width, overfeeding, vehicle speed, setting formula, rolling groove pressure, and falling moisture content.
