Acquisition of a continuous fabric bonding machine

GLIMMER, a company specialized in manufacturing ready-to-wear textile products for women, men, and children, with a production focus on exporting to Europe and the United States. As part of its modernization strategy, GLIMMER sought GEFF II funding and technical assistance for its investment in a continuous fabric bonding machine that replaces an old, energy-consuming machine that was frequently breaking down, and was over 20 years old.

The new 1,600mm-wide fusing machine features a pre-pressure system that considerably improves fusing and eliminates air bubbles, an exit belt to cool the parts controlled by an electro-pneumatic system, a two-colour light to indicate correct fusing conditions, and a touch screen for management and control.

The machine features an intelligent management system that allows it to switch between pre-heating and cooling modes, helping to extend the life of the belts and cylinders. It also boasts a rapid maintenance programme to ensure efficient servicing.

Thanks to this new investment, GLIMMER reduced its annual electricity consumption by 39% and its greenhouse gas emissions by 26.77 teqCO2 each year.
