Cartigliano present ‘A Complete New Story!’

Hong Kong
Published:  26 March, 2014

Thanks to a low vacuum drying temperature, the new Cartigliano a-CNS vacuum dryer introduces a new drying frontier for the tanning industry. The Italian machinery makers will be providing technical information about their new dryer during the APLF in Hong Kong, March 31 – April 2.

The new visually striking machine now permits a very deep and natural drying and grants a perfect thermo-fixation of the fibres without the normal known shrinkage of the area seen with vacuum drying.

As leather is a natural product, Cartigliano have realised that all drying treatments the leather must never exceed 37°c. Only in this way, the a-CNS enhances the natural quality of the leather without ruining it.

Following the drying process, the leather is almost completely dried with around 20% residual moisture. The leather perfectly thermo-fixed and will dramatically cut the shrinkage even for the following drying/conditioning stages. The leather remains full, round and soft. Main features include:

  • Virtually no loss of area during drying
  • Good fullness and roundness
  • Perfect lubrication of the fibres, without any fat or colour migration
