Klieverik Heli, a limited company, has been active for over 40 years as a designer and manufacturer of innovative systems and stand-alone units that improve the efficiency of textile printing and finishing operations.

Its applications include thermo-processing systems, such as transfer printing calenders, dye sub calenders, laminating calenders, systems for the production of technical textiles and prepregs for composites and other thermo-processing systems for fusing of Latex-free carpet, bonding of non-wovens and heat setting of fabrics.

In addition, Klieverik manufactures equipment for the preparation of thickeners and binders, straining under vacuum, cleaning of squeegees, screens, and containers (from small to large), mixing of pastes and dyes.

Klieverik unveiled a new 3.2 meter fixation press for direct to fabric printing at the Specialty Graphics Imaging Association yearly trade show event held last week. This unit cannot operate in closed environments without proper extraction. Purex was able to control the emissions with a Alpha 400 but it is likely to require an 800i for commercial use.

Karel Lansu - Director of Sales at Klieverik will endorse Purex with NA distribution. The same will be introduced in the EU.
