Osthoff Offers Sustainable Technology For Producing Superior Quality Knits

Osthoff-Senge has specially developed a new singeing machine for processing open-width knit goods with a working width of up to 2600 mm. A.T.E., the complete solution provider in textile machinery, represents Osthoff-Senge GmbH, Germany, the market leader in open width singeing technology.

Open-width knit singeing offers many significant advantages, such as:

  • Improved surface quality
  • Reduced loss of weight and tensile strength
  • Lower production costs
  • No increase in effluent loads
  • Clean shop floor
  • Consistency in results


  • Well-proven double jet burners
  • Proportional gas: air mixing and pre-selected singeing positions
  • Selvedge uncurling, driven spreading scroll roll assembly and centering devices
  • Short distance between the guiding rollers to prevent the selvedge from rolling off
  • The fabric is protected by a water-cooled roller when the flame is active
  • Designed to singe either on one side or on both sides of the fabric in one passage
  • After the singeing, the material is guided to a suction cleaning unit
  • On top of the singeing machine a fabric pull roller is installed to pull the fabric from the machine without any stretch
  • To avoid any fire hazards, the knit fabric is guided via a scroll roller into a steam box
  • Finally, the fabric is delivered via a plaiter into box carriages

Around 150 Osthoff open-width knit singeing machines are now working satisfactorily across the world. Three machines are already working in India: Tee Jay (Vishakhapatnam), Bhoomi Textiles (Ahmedabad), and Victus Dyeing (Tirupur). The machine supplied to Arvind (Ahmedabad) is under execution.

Many customers have acknowledged that the operational cost of the Osthoff knit singeing machine is nearly 50% lower than the bio polishing process.
