INDUSTRIAL TEXTILES

INDUTECH (INDUSTRIAL TEXTILES)

Decatising Cloth

Decatising cloth, also known as Decatising wrapper is an industrial fabric used in Decatising machines. The fabric is an integral part of both Open Decatising and Kier Decatising machines that are majorly used for mechanical finishing of woven fabrics. Decatising cloth is a polyamide/cotton or polyester/cotton blended woven fabric available in weights ranging from 400 gsm to 600 gsm

Bolting Cloth

Bolting cloth is a mesh fabric used primarily for screen printing in Textile industry. The fabric also has applications in filtration. Bolting cloth is a woven fabric manufactured from polyester and nylon yarns and is available in a variety of mesh sizes.

Coated abrasives

An abrasive material is used to finish a work piece through rubbing the surface of the work piece. Abrasives are primarily used in industrial applications like grinding, polishing, buffing, honing, cutting, smoothening etc. The coated abrasives are classified into two broad categories: Woven coated abrasives and Non-woven coated abrasives. The cloths used are cotton, polyester and polyester blends, processed to obtain a suitable coated abrasives backing.

Conveyor Belts

Belt Conveyor system is a fastest, environment friendly & economical mode of bulk transportation. The conveyor belt is used to move unit loads individually and bulk loads continuously. A Conveyor belt consists of three components: Cover, Carcass and Insulation – the bonding medium for the carcass. Belting fabrics are used for reinforcing these conveyor belts.Conveyor belts find major application in cement, mining, thermal power plants, paper, glass, fertilizer and other process industries where there is a requirement for continuous transfer of load.

Drive Belts

A belt drive is a method of transferring rotary motion between two shafts. A belt drive includes one pulley on each shaft and one or more continuous belts over the two pulleys. The motion of the driving pulley is, generally, transferred to the driven pulley via the friction between the belt and the pulley. The transmission belts can be classified as Flat, Vee, Poly-Vee, Timing/synchronous belts etc. Vee belts (or V Belts) are the most widely used belts. V belt drives replaced flat belt drives for many applications because higher power could be transmitted with more compact drive arrangements. V Belt Drives achieve drive efficiencies of about 95%.

Computer Printer Ribbon

The computer printer cartridge of a Dot matrix printer (DMP) consists of a cassette and inked fabric called the printer ribbon. The cartridge is replaced when no further prints can be availed, however in order to save on costs only the ribbon portion is changed which is called the refill. The Nylon 6 yarn is woven into a fabric which is cut to required size for making computer printer ribbons. The properties essential for this fabric is High tensile strength, Good absorption capacity and capillary action, Smudge resistance, Scratch resistance, Good heat resistance These properties enable the ribbon to carry the ink and undergo stress during printing.

Printed Circuit Board

The Printed Circuit Board (PCB) is a mechanical device used to electrically connect and hold electronic components. The technical textile used in the manufacture of printed circuit board is the woven glass fibre fabric which is used as reinforcement along with the epoxy resin. The glass fibre impregnated resin is used to bind the copper foils to give copper laminated boards, called laminates. These laminates are further cut into various sizes based on the requirement. The glass fabric used affects the performance of final electronic circuitry built on the PCB. The desired properties of the glass fabric required for PCB applications are like Dimensional stability Surface smoothness , Ability to withstand laser and mechanical drilling , Superior conductive anodic filament (CAF) resistance , Uniform dielectric constant (generally in range of 6.6-6.9), Lower dissipation factor (0.006), Reduced signal skew and improved signal integrity

Ropes and Cordages

The ropes are generally available in 3-strand, 4-strand and 8-strand with standard lengths of length 110, 220, 330 and 440 metres and other customer specifications. The diametre of the ropes varies from ½ inch to 7 inches. The functional specifications of ropes are Excellent strength, Controlled elongation, Abrasion resistance, Heat resistance, Non-corrosive, Light weight, High flexibility , Inert to chemicals.

Industrial Brushes

Brushes are used for various surface finishing and surface cleaning applications both for Industrial and household purpose. Brushes used for Painting applications constitute majority of the demand for Brushes. Other specific industrial applications include Textile finishing, Capsule polishing (Pharma industry), Cleaning of conveyor belts (Material handling industry), Bottle cleaning, etc.

Composites

The burgeoning infrastructure sectors project involving highways, bridges, airports, buildings, and construction, power generation and transmission, telecommunications are expected to provide an impetus to the composites industry in India. Composites are produced by reinforcing a resin matrix (thermoplastic/thermoset) with fibres like glass fibre, aramid, carbon fibre and/or natural fibres. Composites are able to meet diverse design requirements despite being light-weight and have a high strength-to-weight ratio as compared to conventional materials. Composites are more versatile and can be tailored to meet performance needs and complex design requirements. Long life offers excellent fatigue, impact, environmental resistance and reduced maintenance Composites enjoy reduced maintenance cost, Composites exhibit excellent corrosion resistance and fire retardant capability, Improved appearance with smooth surfaces and readily incorporable integral decorative melamine are other characteristics of composites, Composite parts can eliminate joints/fasteners, providing part simplification and integrated design.
