G1 Lab is the Tonello way of sampling: a truly compact dyeing machine that faithfully simulates real production processes, for testing and perfecting recipes and processes before implementing them on a large scale.
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.
Tonello was invited in taking part in Denim and Color, a washing guide by Vicunha Têxtil focused on the main trends of the upcoming season (Fall/Winter 2016).
More than 30 garments, tailor-made by Vicunha, were treated with Tonello sustainable technologies for washing, dyeing and finishing and transformed into super attractive articles of clothing.
The collection includes garments realized with one of Tonello latest developments: Multicolour Laser, the first technology to colour denim and fabrics with laser.
Thanks to a special patent pending process and resins developed by Zaitex and Tonello specific research and know-how in laser treatment, we can now colour denim and any other fabric as we always wanted to do.
Multicolour Laser is the result of an accurate investigation combining a special resin by Zaitex with Tonello sustainable technologies. The study included several tests with the various parameters of Tonello Laser on different types of fabrics (e.g. cotton, leather, seamless fabric) each one with different kind of finishings and dyes.
Just a few images: rapid, dynamic, evocative. And a series of keywords – dynamism, evolution, quality, research, sustainability, etc. – emphasising the values that every day inspire our work in the company. Just over two minutes of video to promote the great new development of 2014: the innovative Tonello Research Centre, the real heart of the company right from the outset.
New premises, colourful and bright, and new team, young, competent and skilled: giving customers an exclusive service, talking with them, giving them hands-on experience of the technological innovations and of the various garment finishes by Tonello.
The result of research by Tonello, ECOfree is a revolutionary ozone washing system that has become the new benchmark for finishing fabrics, for healthier, more beautiful garments. With ECOfree, the ozone is dissolved in water and the indigo is degraded during washing.
ECOfree guarantees reduced consumption of water, energy and chemicals, while giving more pronounced denim effects and better performance than traditional systems, in terms of both the healthiness of the garments and eco-sustainability and worker safety.
Whenever we put on a garment – a pair of jeans or whatever it might be – we are making a statement about ourselves, declaring who we are and expressing our approach to life.
This is why a fabric is always much more than just an interweaving of fibers: it is a boundless palette, waiting to be filled with creativity, imagination and dreams. And this is why we need machines and technologies capable of amazing us, communicating different emotions every time. Like the new Kit Batik.
If you want to bring out the best in a textile fiber, you need to know it inside out. You need to comprehend its essence and foresee how it will behave in every situation. Even the most extreme.
Experience and an in-depth understanding of textiles, a production team of the highest caliber, passion and perfectionism, research and innovation. This is the bedrock of our everyday work. These are the strengths that enable us to share our customers’ objectives of excellence in laser technology too. And to reach them with machines that are always a step ahead of market trends.
This is why, as always, our technology quite simply achieves the best.
Tonello Research has created a washing system that gives not only the advantages of traditional ozone technology, but also considerable savings in terms of water, energy
and chemicals. Ensuring healthier garments and a safer workplace.
With ECOfree, the ozone is dissolved in the water, removing the indigo during washing. Totally eco-friendly bleaching minimizes health risks for operators. It takes just a few simple steps to apply the system to any normal Tonello machine already in use, extending its life cycle.
