teXcal trike – the revolution in technical textiles

This calender takes you a step ahead by maximizing flexibility with two independent nips.

Due to its innovative three roll arrangement, the teXcal trike minimizes fabric losses at the seam passage and provides a substantial economic advantage for your production.

Fabric passage through front nip

Fabric passage through second nip

Besides being operator-friendly, textile calenders need to provide a high degree of flexibility, reproducibility, and process control. Our patented teXcal trike textile calender meets these requirements ideally and sets new standards for sophisticated technical textiles.

The innovative teXcal trike is a three-roll textile calender with a triangular roll arrangement. A heated top steel roll and two identical or different deflection-controlled system rolls allow individual pressure adjustment. Depending on the product, the fabric can be fed through the front nip, the rear nip, or both.
