Steam boarding with low consumption

This machine allows a great boarding thanks to the steam boarding, even with a low consumption thanks to the recovery of steam and hot air after each "treatment", appropriately stocked in specific recycle tanks.

Better (and customizable) treatment times

Steam and ventilation times vary in accordance to the type and quality of the yarn and can be set through digital control panel (up to 9 programs can be set). Times can be varied from a minimum of 10 seconds to a maximum of 180 seconds. Thanks to the long and adaptable treatment times, it's achieved a great steam boarding quality together with a good productivity since 12 or 18 tights (depending on the version) are treated simultaneously and not only 1 or 2 at a time, as it happens with other machines for steam pressing currently on the market.

Different yarns

A versatile machine suitable for the steam boarding of all sorts of tights of different types of yarn:
  • Pure wool
  • Mixed wool
  • Cotton
  • Acrylic fibres
  • Synthetic fibres

Quality Control

Thanks to the orthogonal position of the forms it's also possible to check without effort both sides of tights, to make sure that the quality is optimal.
Without "back sides" both sides of tights are easily checked by the operator even during steam boarding procedures, assuring the quality of your stockings and saving time later.

Boarding leg forms

The machine can be used both with rounded forms (24 or 36 leg forms per machine) or with flat forms. the rounded forms are very similar to the electrically heated ones, but have no elements inside.
For the flat forms minimum thickness of 4 mm is recommended.
Forms are fixed to the machine in a very simple manner, through a pin fixed to the boarding form. In this way boarding forms can then be easily replaced.
Because the leg forms rotate together with the support bars, tights can be easily removed after the boarding and replaced.

Continuous operating cycle & Productivity

A continuous operating cycle it's possible thanks to a rotating glass door: the boarding leg forms are fixed to the rotating system, so that while a set of tights is located within the steam chamber and it's boarded, the other set of forms is located outside, allowing the operator to remove the tights freshly boarded and prepare the next ones.

In accordance to the type of yarn, the output vary from 175 to 100 pairs per hour. The average productivity is of 125 pairs/h.
