Technical Specification or Expertise Sought

Cooperation sought: 
As a subcontractor for yarn and fabric dyeing: The company is looking for a subcontractor that is able to dye 100% cotton, 50% cotton-50% polyester and 100% polyester yarns and circular knitted fabrics. Metric yarn count: ranges from Nm 50/1 to 34/1 The company should have a well-equipped dyeing facility and should be an expert in the process. The Hungarian textile firm needs two different dyeing technologies: 1. For 100% cotton fabrics: Atmospheric dyeing machine 2. For 100% Polyester (PES) and 50%-50% Co-PES fabrics: HT dyeing machines and open finishing It is important that at the finishing there must be a shrinking machine, since the product has to meet the strict requirements of the MSZ EN ISO 25077:2000 and MSZ EN 26330:2000 standards which state that the maximum allowed dimensional change is 3% with PES and 5% with Co/Co-PES fabrics. In case of continuous cooperation with the subcontractor, the monthly quantity to be dyed (depending on the requirements of the customer) would be 500-1000 kg fabric, in case of preparing a sample fabric 60-100 kg. The partner should have 500-600 kg capacity dyeing machines. Sometimes the company also needs yarn dyeing for the production of flat knitted collars, therefore need a partner who is able to dye yarns too. It is also vital that the partner has an inspection machine, and a laboratory for the inspection of physical parameters before and after the dyeing. The company needs short leading time that is about two weeks, in case of a continuous cooperation with the future partner.
