Functions Of Textile Stenter Machine

Stenter Machine

Stenter is used for open-form fabric. After passing the open compactor, the fabric enters the stenter. Cotton fabric shrinks widthwise and becomes distorted due to the bleaching and dyeing process. The main function of the stenter is to stretch the fabric widthwise and to recover the uniform width.

Functions of Stenter

The following are the functions of a textile stenter machine:

  1. Heat setting is done by the stenter for lycra fabric, synthetic fabric, and blended fabric.
  2. The width of the fabric is controlled by the stenter.
  3. Finishing chemicals are applied to fabric by the stenter.
  4. The loop of the knit fabric is controlled.
  5. The moisture of the fabric is controlled by the stenter.
  6. Spirility is controlled by the stenter.
  7. The GSM of the fabric is controlled by the stenter.
  8. Fabric is dried by the stentering process.
  9. The shrinkage property of the fabric is controlled.
  10. Curing treatment for resin and water-repellent fabric is done by the stenter.
