The Textile Factory of the Schmitz-Werke is a fully integrated plant optimised to produce technically challenging products. We manufacture using the most modern systems and represent the entire textile production chain. In the design studio, modern fabric patterns for the worldwide markets are created. The technical development defines fabrics according to customer requirements for a wide range of applications.
We process yarns made from polyester, acrylic or cotton, which we dye permanently in our energy-efficient and water-preserving yarn dyeing plant using a high temperature process. After the warp production we weave on 72 modern dobby machines up to a width of 3.20 m. Apart from classic air-jet weaving machines and rapier weaving machines from Dornier and Picanol, we also use Easy-Leno and embroidery weaving machines.
The fabrics are dyed, washed and processed further in the finishing department. One of the strengths of our textile plant is the functionalization of our fabrics through technology such as air-enhancing properties, UV blockers to maintain colourfastness, self-cleaning effects, and different coatings. We are the first textile manufacturer to use plasma for fabric pre-treatment, which significantly saves on the use of chemicals. In our digital printing shop, there are three transfer paper printers and a direct printer with a width of 320 cm, which can be used to even manufacture according to small orders and the customer’s requirements, Transfer printing is effected on two downstream transfer calenders.
In order to meet our high quality requirements, the process is completed by quality control and make-up. Here, defects are repaired and the goods are inspected in accordance with the quality criteria of the German Heimtexverbandes (home textiles association). We can deliver the goods on a big batch, per piece or as coupon and can deliver around 2,000 items within 24 hours.
The textile factory is proud to be able to maintain a high environmental standard. This includes energy efficiency, careful handling of water and waste water and chemicals. We are certified in accordance with ISO 9001 and 14001 and have an energy management in accordance with ISO 50001. We are in demand as a contact partner of universities, research institutes and the industry when it comes to the development of new procedures.
