AIRO® Hand, synonymous with soft touch, volume, and drape of fabric since 1985

AIRO® improves the hand and look of the textile product with considerable effects on its quality, allowing an almost infinite number of finishing combinations. From processes that ennoble the textile material to unique and trendsetting fashion effects that – by creatively modifying the appearance and touch of the fabric – will allow designers, weavers, and finishers, to profitably explore new marketing opportunities.

The flexibility of Biancalani AIRO® functions allows this machine to process all types of products: natural fibers (cotton, ramie, jute, silk, wool…), artificial fibers (viscose, cupro, Tencel, Lyocell) and synthetic fibers (PES, nylon, acrylic, PP, PU) in all types of construction and without limits in terms of weight and width.

All versions of AIRO® can perform treatments such as:

  • Drying and mechanical softening of wet fabric
  • Mechanical, chemical-free, softening of dry fabric, with or without steam application
  • Softness, volume, drape, dimensional stability, elasticity and sewability (AIRO Hand)
  • Intensive steaming treatments
  • Anti-pilling treatments on polar-fleece lamb skin
  • Opening of the chenille; three-dimensionality on jacquards
  • Grain-enhancement and natural/aged look on synthetic leather
  • Peachy hand on emerized and brushed surfaces
  • Softness and uniformity of the surface on printed cloths
  • Swelling and volume on velvet, corduroy, and pile fabric in general
  • Paper hand, gummy hand

Additionally, on the AIRO® version with washing capabilities:

  • Application of chemicals (i.e. softener) by exhaustion
  • Rapid scouring, milling, de-sizing , bleaching and alkaline treatment
  • Enzyme treatments, with fibrillation, defibrillation and cleaning
  • Biopolishing and special textile finishes
  • Washing with chemical products for special effects (colour reduction, delavé, frosted effect…)
  • “Sense” effect on cupro and blends

AIRO® DUE: productivity and economy

AIRO® DUE is a smaller version of the same machine with two treatment channels

With its compact size, AIRO® DUE offers the same performance as AIRO® QUATTRO: washing (in a more complete configuration), drying and softening any kind of woven, non-woven and knitted fabric.
