The convective drying process widely used in the textile industry, a hot air steam will pass over the surface of the garment or textile to be dried. Airflow transfers heat to the material by forced convection and, at the same time, carries away evaporated water. Conveyor belt made by PTFE coated fiberglass such as PTFE fusing machine belt, PTFE open mesh belt is an essential tool for drying and fusing process because the material withstand high temperature and offer nonstick surface.
Nowadays, garment manufacturing cannot be imagined without fusing. Fusing is an alternative method of joining fabric. It is widely used to attach the interlining. Resin coating of interlining melted by heating into the fabric under pressure and when it becomes cool and hard; both fabric and interlining are attached strongly. Fusing is controlled by four processing components such as temperature, time, pressure, and cooling. PTFE seamless belt is specially designed for fusing machine-like Hashima, Oshima, Veit, Meyer, Macpi, Juki, compared with PTFE belt with joint, it overcomes the disadvantage of easy fracture at the joint part of conveyor belt, and offers better bending fatigue resistance.
PTFE heat tunnel conveyor belt is customized by PTFE mesh with different kinds of joint and edge reinforcement. Different mesh holes such as 1x1mm, 2x2.5mm, 4x4mm, 8x8mm, 10x10mm are available to fit different applications. This mesh belt is an alternative of traditional stainless steel belt and Polyurethane belt for textile printing and dyeing machine, screen printing machine, UV drying machine, offset printing machine and non-woven fabric drying machine. Because PTFE mesh belt is much lighter and easier install than stainless steel belt and offers much better heat resistance and nonstick property than polyurethane belt.
