PRODYE installation begins in China

KARL MAYER indigo dyeing machine offers Hingtex yet more variety and quality

The KARL MAYER success story has now reached China, thanks to the PRODYE indigo dyeing machine. The efficient warp preparation equipment for denim production is already a worldwide commercial success, and spring 2020 will see the commissioning of the first machine in China.

The premiere model has been ordered by H.W. Textiles Co., Limited, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Hingtex Holdings Limited. A fully integrated manufacturer based in Hong Kong, Hingtex is one of the world’s most important producers of denim. Key to the company’s success is its continual provision of a product portfolio bursting with quality, variety and uniqueness, particularly since it entered into partnership with Kurabo Industries Ltd. Hingtex’s strategic alliance with the Japanese textiles company was originally established in 2013 as a joint venture. “To differentiate yourself from your competitors, you need to be innovative and proactive, especially in today’s highly competitive and fast changing market,” says Director Stephen Tung.

To ensure that his company can get new developments moving quickly and offer a diverse range of products, the prudent owner has opted for the PRODYE-S from KARL MAYER to expand its warp preparation capacity. The slasher dyeing machine has been configured especially for this application. “PRODYE-S is fitted with a large number of set screws for customising the dyeing process. It allows us to make decisive expansions to our product range and produce items that cannot be copied”, explains Director Stephen Tung. The versatile indigo dyeing machine is suitable for many different kinds of yarn, such as TENCEL™, modal, and core-spun.

PRODYE boasts many additional features that set it apart from the competition. These include a darker indigo shade of up to 5%, lower water consumption and waste yarn, plus double productivity for the production of lightweight denim.

KARL MAYER uses its expertise to help its clients unlock this huge potential.
