Tonello presents Core: The Secret Plus

Bringing out all the technical potential of a fabric and giving it added value requires machines and technologies that are capable of conveying emotions. And capable of optimizing the performance of each individual garment. In other words, what is needed is truly innovative technology: Core.

More than 12 years ago we launched onto the market Batik. At that time it was still a rudimentary system to create vintage effects on garments, in a semi-automated way. Many years have passed and many tests and improvements have been done. It’s now time to present you Core, that is not the best version of Batik. It’s even more: a new, fundamental step towards the future of finishing. Actually, an innovative technology that works like magic.

Tonello presents UP: Less is More

After ECOfree, NoStone® 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 introduces Safe Garment collection

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.

Tonello and Levi Strauss & Co. Collaborate on NoStone

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 for Denim & Color Washing Guide

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.

Tonello presents Multicolour 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.
