Knit Concern Group, one of the high capacity knit fabric and garment manufacturing company has achieved a new capacity of dyeing sophisticated very low and very high weight fabric smoothly. Nice control systems in the new machine facilitate smooth loading and storage within the machine, giving better care in the process, meaning better quality fabric.
CHTC FONG’S International Company Limited brought TECWIN high-temperature dyeing machine which is designed to satisfy the ever-changing market demands with cutting-edge patented technology. Fong’s and Pacific Associates Ltd. jointly organized an open house event on 11th August for newly launched TECWIN machine at Knit Concern Group, Godnail, Narayanganj. This year in the middle of June, Knit Concern Group installed a TECWIN first ever in Bangladesh.
The new machine installed by Knit Concern is not only giving them the capacity of a new range of quality fabric, it will also help the company to reduce water, energy and chemical consumption. Mechanical design and use of intelligent automation technology will solve many problems which traditionally was being overcome by using chemicals.
The event was inaugurated by the welcome speech of Mr. Shahabuddin, Managing Director of Pacific Associates Ltd. The technical session described by Stephen S.L. Leung, Manager, Application Technology Centre of Fong’s National Engineering Co. Ltd. Jahangir Hossain Mollah, Vice President, Knit Concern Group received the crest from Fong’s as the first valuable customer of TECWIN in Bangladesh. Many industry professionals, experts, technologists from different factories were present at the seminar.
TECWINs technology and features
TECWIN is equipped and retained the superior designs from the last generation. Additionally, some novel conceptual designs are integrated into this new machine. Both the reliability and applicability of the machine are improved.
Some special feature of the m/c-
Front Spray Nozzle: Provide an additional opportunity to increase the degree of dye liquor interchange before the fabrics entering the main nozzle. The levelness and quality of fabrics could be enhanced.
Automatic Variable Loading Storage Chamber: The loading storage capacity can be adjusted automatically to suit different kinds of fabric running.

Dye Liquor Separation Design: The Dye liquor separation is specially designed in TECWIN. Along with the variable loading storage chamber, the dyeing operation can be smoother and stacking of fabrics can be more organized, which eventually leads to a lower liquor ratio.
Integrated Intelligent Rinsing (IIR): IIR uses an optical device with a unique control software to monitor the “color index” of the water discharge in real time. It reduces the excess rinsing water consumption, energy consumption, and emission.
Effective Unloading Design: The surface of the stainless steel roller is wrapped with high friction material to increase lifting force; achieving an effective unloading operation.
Control System: A good controlling system is considered as the heart of a dyeing m/c. Latest program controller – FC30EX is equipped in TECWIN. With the novel control functions, it is one of the most cost-effective controllers.
Nominal material to liquor ratio (1:4~4.5) give this m/c more acceptability. Engr. Md. Rakibul Hassan (Rocky), Deputy Manager (Dyeing), Knit Concern Ltd. said, “We recovered crease mark greatly by using this m/c and loading percentage is also increased notably.”
Knit Concern Ltd. installed the 2 tube TECWIN m/c, each tube has 300 kg capacity. Total dyeing capacity of KCL is about 35 tons daily. Knit Concern produces and exports about 150,000 pieces of knit apparel and 25,000 pieces of lingerie daily.
