Wet Finishing

Quality you can see and feel. Menzel offers the optimal equipment for each of your processes and each production quantity. Our portfolio includes equipment for all processing stages of wet finishing: washing machines, bleaching machines, mercerizing machines and dyeing machines. Every single one of our modules is designed to ensure that you end up with flawless textile quality for first-class products.
We are also able to meet your very individual requirements: in the past, we have already realized customized systems with a fabric width of between 40 mm and 5,600 mm.

Washing Machines

A clean business. One of the first steps in textile finishing is washing or desizing the raw material. On Menzel washing systems, fiber preparations or sizing agents - indispensable for the process of weaving, knitting or warp knitting - are washed out of the textile. Whether cotton jersey for fashion or sportswear, elastic warp-knitted fabrics with or without Lycra for functional underwear or even textiles for the automotive industry, Menzel always offers the perfect washing solution.

Also as a unit for upholstery fabrics or as a component of a bleaching or mercerizing machine, Menzel open-width washing machines are always the backbone and essential element of any continuous textile finishing line.

Menzel offers a variety of individual solutions on the platform of classic washing systems such as roller skids, tower washing machines or screen drum washing machines for fabrics sensitive to tension. From woven fabrics to tulle, Menzel washing machines are always the first choice.

Washing Machine Compact Flow

MENZEL COMPACTFLOW small batch washer offers all the advantages of the large OPTISPLASH drum washer in a minimum of space: Two fully tension-controlled screen drum units with backfill, rotors and squeezing units. And all this on a length of only two meters.

Bleaching Machines

Glacier White. With Menzel bleaching plants, we lay the foundation worldwide for economical textile finishing of materials made of cotton, linen, cotton / elastane and polyester / cotton. These qualities are processed, for example, into high-quality fashionable outerwear or workwear. Trouser fabrics, uniform fabrics, bed linen and fabrics for shirts are just as much a part of the production spectrum of a Menzel woven fabric bleaching plant as the finest table linen, damask or even satin. Menzel Maschinenfabrik even offers suitable knitwear bleaching plants for sensitive knitwear made of cotton.

Menzel bleaching plants are your guarantee for reproducible bleaching results and high productivity, even for delicate articles. Regardless of the application: continuous knitwear bleaching systems, single-stage and two-stage steaming bleaching systems for woven fabrics, pad-roll hot bleaching systems or even KKV bleaching systems. Maximum application systems, addition application or impregnation according to the exchange method, we provide the best possible solution that exactly fits your material.

We will be happy to advise you on the individual design and composition of your system, according to your needs.

Bleaching machine OPTIBLEACH KF

Bleaching plant for the pretreatment of cotton and cotton blend knitted fabrics which are sensitive to tension and which are to be continuously desized, demineralized and bleached. The plant offers an additional benefit when used for color and print post-washing.

Mercerizing machines

Perfect gloss and high dye absorption. Menzel mercerizing lines set worldwide standards in the field of mercerizing high-quality textiles made of cotton, viscose, linen or cotton-polyester. The better dye absorption and the silky sheen give mercerized fabrics a more noble appearance. Menzel mercerizing lines are also highly automated via the OPTICONTROL process control system.

For all application processes, regardless of whether hot mercerizing, cold mercerizing, wet-on-wet mercerizing or dry-on-wet mercerizing, even for mercerizing shirting fabrics or delicate satins as well as jacquards; Menzel has the best solution for every application.

Menzel offers warp mercerizing units for mercerizing shirting fabrics, the classic roller mercerizing unit for flat woven fabrics as well as combined warp-roller mercerizing units. In addition, the Menzel Minimerc mercerizing machine is a solution for the mercerizing of small batches for woven fabrics.

Dyeing Machines

We add the splash of colour. A large proportion of the textiles finished worldwide are dyed continuously. The dyeing is always done in a combination of dye application and a dye fixation, be it by temperature in the thermosol process, by saturated steam in the pad-steam process or via the factor of time in the cold dwell process.

Menzel Maschinenbau offers the Opticolour S-roller dyeing foulard as the core element of a dyeing system. It is suitable for the application of reactive dyes, direct dyes, vat dyes, sulfur dyes or disperse dyes. In combination with state-of-the-art and high-precision dosing systems, the name Menzel stands for reproducibility and precision.
