Monforts, a leading textile machinery manufacturer, is introducing a new Easy Compact range, designed specifically for the advanced compacting of open width knitted fabrics. “Compacting is an essential stage in the finishing process, with a decisive influence on the final quality of knitted styles such as jerseys, piques, interlocks, plushes and ribs. It perfectly controls shrinkage and reduces yarn slippage while providing fabrics with a smooth, soft, fluffy and silky touch, adding lustre and improving opacity,” the company explains.
