Although Biella Shrunk Process and KD® represent a well established and successful combination, we have to mention some important targets achieved by our passion-driven work in the fabric finishing field.

KD Biella Shrunk Process

The Growth of Our Innovation

 

The Timeline of Our Innovations.

1961

A Daring Challenge: the KD birth

Biella Shrunk Process has been founded in 1961 following a daring challenge: create in the wool fabrics field a new finishing process able to achieve a permanent and inalterable effect. From this hint took origin the autoclave decatising machine, better known with the acronym KD® (registered trade mark of Biella Shrunk Process), which rapidly became well-known all over the world.
Smooth and soft handle, brilliant and refined look and excellent dimensional stability are the characteristics which determined a rapid and widespread application of such a new process which became an internationally acknowledged quality standard.

1975

The Automation in Rolling Technology: Autorol 75

The Autorol project is the first ever produced fabric rolling robot, fully automated plant able to measure, roll, cut and pack with no need of manual intervention, Autorol so marks the genesis of a long and fruitful series of such type of machines.

1975

Maxima 75 the first "Jumbo" KD

1983

The High Quality System

In 1983 has been introduced the so called "High Quality" system -patented- consisting of much larger decatising cylinders -670 mm- with differentiated perforation and oxygen-reducing internal tank. This solution allowed to increase the productivity and the treatment uniformity thanks to the reduced number of fabric layers which determined a much thinner roll to be easily crossed by the steam.

1990

The extra-large 900 mm cylinders of KD Suprema 90

The "High Quality" patented system has been further optimized in 1990 with the KD Suprema 90 model featuring extra-large decatising cylinders of 900 mm diameter and a 1.600 mm autoclave suitable to process huge fabric lots: higher productivity and maximum versatility proven the validity of the large diameter concept.

1992

Vulco-Crab Finishing Prabbing Plant

Based on the radial pressure rollers patent combined with an endless silicone coated belt.

1999

KD Gigante model with 2.100 mm autoclave and two decatising cylinders of 1.500 mm diameter suitable to work with up to 4 technical fabrics

In 1999 the concept-machine KD Giant marks an amazing goal with its 1.500 mm decaitising cylinders(!) and the patented roll stocking unit which allow to use up to 4 different technical fabrics on the machine wrapper and molleton types.

2000

Innovative Technologies

The process control technology assumes greater importance: new technical patented solutions are so introduced like the "Run-Up Cycle" using a special modulating steam reduction valve to reduce the thermal and physic shocks at the steaming cycle start-up, the "Steam Quality Control Device" which grants constant steam characteristics, or the "Combined Pressure-Tension System" suitable to obtain the ideal roll compactness.

2002

Formula 1 Multipla

The very powerful Formula 1 Multipla surprise the finishing experts thanks to its double steam heated effect drums -patented- which allow very intense effects like the chintz or super-finished touch.

2007

Continuous KD Machine Valentina

Over 20 years spent to study the "mechanisms" behind the fabric setting phenomenon and the analysis of continuous processes compared to traditional discontinuous technologies, these researches are then summarized in then summarized in the under pressure continuous decatising project which brings the name of Valentina machine.

2011

KD Jubilee

The 2011 saw the introduction of a great patented innovation, which had an immediate and excellent feedback from the Customers: KD Jubilee, the first autoclave decatizing machine with integrated fabric pressing unit, which allows larger cost savings, improved quality and higher efficiency.

2011

Nanomix

The revolutionalry mix of air, water and steam determine the success of the steaming and shrinking machine Nanomix, appreciated for its low consumption and its intense relaxing action on the fabric.

2015

KD Futura

Following the success achieved by the KD Jaguar and KD Renova larger models, at ITMA 2015 was launched the KD FUTURA: a machine with large autoclave (1.888 mm) and 3 decatising cylinders of 900 mm with which it is possible to load up to 1.400 m per batch, allowing the highest productivity result.

2015

Kinetika

The dynamic washing technology -patented- adopted by the continuous open width washing machine Kinetika introduces a new solution to treat a wide range of fabrics.
