The non-contact Novara finishing applicator delivers 2D patterning and one or two-sided application, all under digital control, enabling significant cost reduction.
In comparison with pad application, Novara has been demonstrated to reduce operating costs by over 30%.
Enabling dramatic energy and chemistry savings, Novara delivers a breakthrough in sustainability.
Reduced chemistry and energy consumption also enables processes to run faster, freeing up valuable capacity.
Flexibility for precision delivery of a wide range of finishes for technical textiles with 2D patterning and sided application.
Novara is suitable for the application of a wide range of finishes including: waterproofing, stain resistant, self-cooling, fire retardant, metallics / visual effects and antiviral.
The technology enables high value finishes to be used cost effectively.
