We master beaming, warpknitting, finishing and coating. We do it all in house, like we have done since the beginning of the late 1930s. Now we produce more than 500 000 sqm technical textiles every week.
Our ability to produce customized products.
We have a range of standard products from 10 gram/sqm up to more than 1000 gram/sqm.
We offer a market flexibilty since we can manufacture products in many ways. Small or huge quntities, standard or tailor made in a variety of different machines. 24-7, at your service.
To get a proper warpknitted textile in superior quality we make the warping process ourselves. We have warping machineries equipped with modern yarn guard system to prevent yarn breaks in the beams we produce. In the creels we can place up to 1210 yarn cones and use different types of yarn. We have a number of different beam sizes to meet the demands of different constructions and volumes of the textile items we produce in our plant.
We do and prepare for a constant modernization of our machine park as we make frequent investments in new warpknitting machines. The machine type we use are two in number and we call them tricot and raschel with weft inserts (WIWK = Weft Inserted Warp Knitting). The machines are adapted for the business areas that we work with in terms of both the width of our articles and the fineness with regard to the number of needles per inch.
We have invested in a stenter frame to have more control over the finishing process and to shorten the deliverytime to our customers. Our philosophy is – the more we can produce or refine under our own roof is a strength booth for our customers and for Engtex as a whole.
Engtex has the ability to offer fabric with a surface finishing according specific needs and end uses such as chemical binders for Pvc coating or other types of coating. With controlled pick up over full width up to 450 cm and a specified drying time the adhesion level is reached and all requirements are met including non wicking. Combining the advantages of a weft insertion warp knitting fabric formation and the special designed finishing line makes Engtex a strong supplier in the coating industry.
At Engtex, we continuously strive to make our products first-grade, and to keep them that way. Strongest, toughest, safest, durable and sustainable, to meet and frequently exceed our customers needs and requirements, throughout a constant phase of refinement. The close collaboration between our customers, experts, test institutes, universities and our own team of developers, has laid the foundation to our success. A modern facility equipped with the latest machine technology contributes to superior product quality, which simultaneously enables potential growth in both existing as well as new market sectors. Wherever there is a need for technical textile, Engtex will help you and your company to develop the desired solution.
Testing and evaluation of our products is a crucial task, which we are carrying out batch wise and/or with a predefined sample frequency, to fulfill quality requirements from customers and standards. In addition to this, our product development relies significantly on the outcome of each trial, where after corrective actions can be determined, towards achieving a first-grade product. The tests are mainly performed in-house, facilitated with dedicated test equipment and know-how.
We are capable of handling the following tests in-house; household wash, anti-wicking, viscosity, surface weight, thickness, tear and tensile strength, and protection against hand-held chainsaws according to standards.
