IDES steps in Bangladesh with its space and energy saving dyeing machines

Turkish fabric dyeing and finishing machine manufacturer IDES, effectively supporting the fabric dyeing factories all over Turkey. And for 9 years it has brought its latest innovations to Bangladesh. From installation to warranty, and repair to field servicing of automation and textile machinery, IDES supports its customers with a dedicated team of experienced process engineers and technicians. The company is led by veterans who pose a long experience in the Turkish fabric dyeing industry.

One of them is Omer EMEL, the sales Director for Bangladesh, Egypt, and Pakistan of IDES Textile Machinery. He has 25 years of working experiences in the fabric dyeing industry. Omer EMEL is working relentlessly with IDES Textile Machinery to reflect his experience and knowledge on the innovative designs of their dyeing machines.

In a recent interview with Textile Today, Omer EMEL introduced his company, pointed out the uniqueness of the IDES Textile dyeing machines, and shared his expectations for the future textile industry of Bangladesh.

Textile Today: Please introduce your company’s innovative approaches for the fabric dyeing industry.

Omer EMEL: We introduce our energy and water-efficient fabric dyeing machines which require less compared to conventional machines to the Bangladeshi dye houses. We have specially modified nozzles, and pumps in our fabric dyeing machines to improve water and energy efficiency. We have modified our heat exchanger in a way that has increased its efficiency and it can save huge energy. The special chemical dosing system installed in the machine is designed to ensure equal and smooth distribution of the chemicals.

IDES developed such a good machine which consumes very less energy and works with high efficiency. In terms of the space, volume, water flow, quantity of the water IDES machine is totally different than the other machines.

Textile Today: As the dyeing factories consume much water and energy resources, what innovative solutions are you providing to the dyeing factories to save water and energy?

Omer EMEL: The innovative heightened J-boxes used in the machines can dye fabrics with less water without plaiter systems which results in significant savings in energy consumption of a fabric dyeing factory. The innovative designs of the heat-exchangers increase the energy efficiency significantly as well as the dosing system that IDES has installed in its fabric dyeing machines ensures better evenness of the dyed fabrics. Pumps with special specifications used in these fabric dyeing machines ensure the flow of water inside the J-box and alleviate the crease problem of the fabrics in dyeing processes. It also increases the loading capacity of the dyeing machines. It saves a lot of water and energy.

Textile Today: What solutions do you provide to the common problems of textile dyeing factories in Bangladesh?

Omer EMEL: Our main concern for the dyeing industry is space. In both Bangladesh and Turkey, limited space is a big problem. IDES developed such a good machine which consumes very less energy and works with high efficiency. In terms of the space, volume, water flow, quantity of the water IDES machine is totally different than the other machines. These machines are more efficient and consume less energy. Specially designed nozzles and pumps with special specification in our machines make dyeing possible without any crease mark on the dyed fabrics.

Pump capacity of IDES machine is 30% to 40% higher than the conventional machines. With this capacity our machines can handle fabrics with a wide range of GSM without any problem.

Pump capacity of IDES machine is 30% to 40% higher than the conventional machines. With this capacity our machines can handle fabrics with a wide range of GSM without any problem. The water flow system of our machine is designed to ensure equal waterflow to all nozzles that ensures equal waterflow to all the dyeing chambers. It ensure evenness of dyeing. Our machines can handle fabrics ranging from 40 to 500 GSM with its special pump specifications. With its special pumps and nozzle diameter, our machine significantly reduces the crease mark of the dyed fabrics.

Developing good things for the environment rather than only for business is the cornerstone of our business.

Textile Today: Could the IDES machines reduce M:L ratio in fabric dyeing?

Omer EMEL: Truly speaking M:L ratio is not a big issue for us. Our focus is on reducing total water consumption. The IDES fabric dyeing machines can dye the dry fabrics with a 1:4 to 1:5 liquor ratio and the wet fabrics with a 1:2 to 1:3 liquor ratio. But it is up to the process engineers whether they can maintain this ratio or not. It depends on various factors like fiber types, dye types, quantity, etc. For example, with our machine, we have dyed one kg of polyester-cotton blended fabric of Navy dark shade with 25.6 L of water only! Our machines can ensure dyeing with very less water.

Textile Today: Tell us something about your research and development process. How do you work?

Omer EMEL: Our manufacturing plant of IDES is situated in Istanbul which is surrounded by about 600 big dyeing facilities. From the beginning, our Research and Development team is working with the nearby factories to solve their fabric dyeing problems with their innovative designs. Our R&D philosophy is that we observe the problems of the dyeing factories and engage our R&D team to find out solutions. When we develop something, it is an industry requirement. We never work only on a theoretical basis. Right now, we are working on developing an improved dosing system to improve the loading capacity of our fabric dyeing machines by 20%.

Textile Today: How do you observe the Russia-Ukraine war from the Bangladesh perspective as most of the buyers are EU based?

Omer EMEL: As the Russia-Ukraine conflict has caused the natural gas price to soar in Europe, the shopping behavior of European customers has drastically deteriorated. Its impact is visible in the Bangladeshi textile industries, order flow has gone down. I believe that the situation will improve after a few months and the European market will go back to its normality.

Developing good things for the environment rather than only for business is the cornerstone of our business.

Textile Today: What is your future plan in Bangladesh?

Omer EMEL: We believe Bangladesh will be a good market for our machines as we are continuously focusing on adding new features to our machines. All the spare parts of our dyeing machines will be available in Bangladesh with a team of experienced technicians who can continuously support our customers with after-sales servicing and they can provide all the spare parts in Bangladesh. Our process engineers will also stay in Bangladesh to help the dye houses to maintain best practices with our fabric dyeing machines.

Textile Today: What do you expect for the future textile industry of Bangladesh?

Omer EMEL: The future of the textile industry of Bangladesh is better and the textile manufacturers should utilize online channels to increase their business by accessing other markets.
