High quality and innovation are two words that immediately jump to mind when thinking about Tonello, the Italian brand that, since 1981, has reinvented the way jeans and garments are washed, dyed and finished. With over 7000 machines sold worldwide and a widespread sales network, Tonello is considered the reference point in the garment finishing industry. That’s the reason why the ICHAM — Italian Chamber of Commerce in Vietnam — invited us to take the floor at the upcoming seminar “Italian Technology for Vietnam’s Garment and Textile Industry”.
After NoStone®, Water Brush, and Core, denim washing has reached a crucial turning point with UP. This patented technology reduces the liquor ratio to unparalleled levels, saving water and energy and making water filling and draining faster. UP is a revolutionary innovation applicable to all existing Tonello machines, including the least recent. Because Tonello machines do not age, they evolve.
Tonello’s Safe Collection features denim garments with an authentic worn-out look that are safe for workers to treat and for consumers to wear. This achievement was perfected by combining different technologies and, in the same way, by avoiding the use of any type of hazardous chemicals. An example of this is potassium permanganate and sodium hypochlorite, two both toxic and polluting products of standard use in the finishing of jeans.
A non-book book, experimental, artistic but never didactic; an “emotional object” of inspiration and design, made up more of free associations – thematic, graphic and photographic… – than of logical and orderly arguments, like a fabric that is interwoven of different kinds and consistencies of threads, combined together by proximity, and similarity or contrast: Tonello has chosen to celebrate its first thirty-five years of history with a tribute.
After the victory at the first ITMA Sustainable Innovation Award for its NoStone® denim finishing technology developed with Levi Strauss & Co., Tonello announced that its Water Brush was named Launch of the Year at last week’s Future Materials Awards.
The Water Brush system perfected by Tonello introduces a revolutionary change to the world of denim garment treatment. The whitening and abrasion process for jeans can now be obtained without using permanganate or any other chemical products and without manual brushing. This protects the safety and health of the operators, while fully respecting the environment and workplace.
Today, we announced the latest advance in denim manufacturing, the NoStone®, a new system developed in collaboration with Levi Strauss & Co. The new process is designed to overcome economic, mechanical and environmental limitations of existing stone-wash processes.
The NoStone® system eliminates the use of pumice stone, replacing it with a stainless-steel abrasive drum, fastened to the washing machine. This drum can create a variety of finishes through flexible abrasion adjustments to create the look and styles varieties consumers love. Due to the mechanical – rather than chemical – nature of the process, the NoStone® effect is the same as that of stone-wash and reduces the carbon footprint created by using pumice stones.
Today we are proud to introduce Mago, a new assistance service that is unique and different.
In fact, Mago is not your everyday remote service. It is much much more; it’s a fast track of communication and dialogue that takes our collaboration and partnership to the next level.
Mago allows us to always stand by our customers and act fast to solve any malfunction of our machines or, even better, to prevent them.
When you race, the main thing is not simply to participate, but to distinguish yourself and compete to the end for victory, giving the best and offering something which is unique and memorable.
That’s why we’re super-happy for having reached the final, together with the most important international brands, at the first edition of the ITMA Future Materials Awards, recently assigned in Dresden.
Tonello stands apart from its main competitors also in terms of sampling technology: its range of washing and dyeing machines has always been outstanding for its completeness and for its ability to faithfully replicate real production processes. All the models make it possible to test and develop recipes and procedures before introducing them on a large scale.
G1 sampling machines are fitted as standard with a B&R control system, a latest-generation microprocessor – which makes it possible to obtain the same, high-quality performance as production machines – as well as a touch screen.
