Saspe has been the first one in the world to introduce a new line of machines into the textile sector for the fabrics surface treatment having the typical dimensions laboratory machines have. Thanks to the considerable experience gained in the manufacture of machines for the finishing fabrics surface treatment, Saspe has designed and built these new line of machines for lab and production, which can be employed by manufacturers of narrow fabrics, by textile labs and by schools (technical schools and universities) for staff training purposes.
Saspe Lab range of machines includes a 6-cylinder or 12-cylinder Raising machine, a Shearing machine, Sueding machine equipped with emery paper,emery clothing or with abrasive brushes.
These three machines can be employed in the industrial fields in many different ways: manufacturers of narrow knitting, of medical fabrics (i.e. gauzes…), technical fabrics (i.e. tape, filters…), shoe fabrics, trimmings, ribbons.
These machines can also be employed in lab tests, first of all to simulate surface treatments (raising – shearing – sueding) and therefore to test both the resistance and the shrinkage of fabrics after their being through finishing processes. Moreover, they can detect changes in the appearance and to the touch, due to surface alterations for either the presence of hair (raising – shearing) or for the finishing coat (raising – sueding).
As far as the training of personnel is concerned, the Saspe Lab line is very interesting as machines which due to their big dimensions and difficulties in management, (suction system, folder…), did not previously fit the needs of schools can now be employed in schools against a contained investment.
