Power in the air

AIRO® 24: the new and original high-efficiency dryer
for continuous and open-width tumbling treatments of woven,
non woven and knitted fabrics. A high quality finishing style
which has no equal in the world. The AIRO® style.
Some technical data

Production speed up to 50 m/min

Processing speed up to 2500 m/min
(93 mph or 150 km/h)

500 kg/h evaporation capacity (up to 750 kg/h)

Working widths up to 360 cm
The AIRO®24 principle

Fabric moves at very high speed, suspended and transported
by the air flow, in alternate directions... this is the heart of
AIRO®24 treatment. The special grids placed in front of the channel
openings allow the fabric to discharge the accumulated kinetic
energy while it acquires body, volume, drape and better stability,
getting rid of any excess of humidity at the same time.
Applications


A very wide range of materials are suitable for AIRO®24
treatment. The flexibility of its functions allow this machine
to adapt to any type of product: natural fibers (cotton, linen,
ramie, jute, silk, wool, and blends), artificial fibers (viscose,
cupro, polynosic, polyammide, Tencel, Lyocell, Modal),
synthetic fibers (PES, nylon, acrylic, PP, PU, PVC) in all types
of construction such as woven, knitted, flock and non-woven,
with different application: apparel, upholstery, technical textiles.
No limits in weight and width. Results are obtained
in complete safety and absence of defects.
Treatments and results

Air flow intensive tumble drying, mechanical chemical-free softening on dry
fabric and with steam application, or after chemical impregnation.

Softness, drape, volume, dimensional stability, elasticity and sewability (AIRO® Hand)

Opening of the chenille, three-dimensionality on jacquards, depth and richness
of colors on yarn-dyed fabrics.

Perfect straightening and complete relax and de-twisting of the loops (super-soft,
super-swelling) on terry towel.

Uniformity with no directionality on pile fabrics.

Hand breaking on particularly rigid fabric, also coupled, and laminated.

Grain-enhancement and natural/aged look on synthetic leather.

Peachy hand on emerized and brushed surfaces.

Single pass High Efficiency AIRO® Polymerization of resins: resilience,
crease-resistance (easy care), wrinkled effect and casual look.

Defibrillation and cleaning treatment after bio-polishing and surface finishing.

Softness and uniformity of the surface on printed cloths.

Preparation for shearing, coating…
Steaming at the inlet
An exclusive continuous steaming unit can
be installed at the inlet of AIRO®24.
This device acts evenly on the whole width
of the fabric during the passage immediately
preceding the entrance in the machine.

AIRO® 24 innovations
Smart-Switch technology

With this unique and patented device, which intelligently controls and
optimizes the direction switching of the air which drives the fabric, AIRO®24 can
finely modulate the intensity of the mechanical action independently from the
drying power. From lightweight materials to heavier ones made of
delicate yarn, every type of fabric will benefit from the smart-switch technology,
with a considerable increase in the drying capacity of the machine. AIRO®24
smart-switch can be installed also on the tandem versions of AIRO®24.


Synchronized internal steaming

A specially designed steam distribution system - composed by two steam
delivery units placed at each entrance of the treatment channel – injects the
desired amount of steam right into the air flow, which efficiently pushes it
through the fabric throughout the whole length of the channels.
The result is a perfectly uniform steaming action, thanks to the fast movement
of the fabric and the synchronization of the steaming direction which also
prevents condensation. Steam delivered at the right moment, in the right place,
with AIRO®24.


Everything under control

Main 12.1" touch screen with auxiliary touch panel at fabric exit,
redesigned user interface, new real-time monitoring, history and statistics
functions, open interconnection with existing monitoring systems.
AIRO® 24 tandem
Twice the power!
With AIRO®24 the loop of terry relaxes and is positioned
vertically to the base of the handwork and the tandem version
(patented), designed especially for the needs of manufacturers of terry,
knit and velvet, offers twice the drying capacity compared
to the standard machine. On this variant it is also
applicable the smart-switch device which further increases
the machine drying ability.
