Mario Crosta is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of textile finishing machinery. At ITMA ASIA + CITME, the Italian-based manufacturer will highlight its new TOUCH sueding machine and POLARIS double drum raising machine.

TOUCH is Mario Crosta’s most updated version of sueding machine developed together with its customers. The basic machine is composed of six brushes made of a new compound of carbon. A couple of additional draft cylinders along the drum help managing the tension very carefully when compared to the standard machines in the market.

In addition, Mario Crosta has developed some additional key options that offer many advantages, including the patented Seam Jumper, the Plier Uncurler devices and the motorized spreading devices.

The Seam Jumper is a detaching bar that automatically lifts the seam from the brushes to avoid breakages and reduce wastages. The Plier Uncurler devices are used to reduce dramatically the rolled-up selvedges. Meanwhile, the motorized spreading devices along the drum, near the drafts, helps keeping the fabric uncurled during the process.

The configuration of the POLARIS machine was primarily designed to process knit fabrics made of artificial fibers such as polyester, CVC, elastane blends. The machine’s features related to speed, tension, rotation were updated for superior performances.

Increased traction rollers, reengineered drums and cylinders are used to guarantee total and complete coverage with faster and more efficient speeds. Updated high-precision tension control avoids the common problem of tension fluctuation in other systems.

Besides, the use of high performance V-belts and synchronization belts ensure a smooth and continuous transmission of power traction, guaranteeing a continuous raising force. All data are fully managed by the PLC through the display and all parameters are stored in the machine’s backup memory.
