3 Benefits Of Using Jigger Dyeing Machines

by Izak Wassing

If you dye textiles, then you need to choose the right dyeing machine for your products and processes. In many cases, jigger dyeing machines are a reliable and versatile option. What are the advantages of investing in jigger dyeing equipment?

1. Better Dyeing Results

Some dyeing machines give you variable results. They might not distribute dyes consistently through a bath of fabric. You might find it hard to get the right depth and shade of color.

Jigger dyeing machines deliver consistent and controllable results. For example, these machines give you an even dye through a whole fabric bath. The way a machine moves and treats fabric through the dyeing process ensures that batches all have the same color results without the variations you might get from other equipment. This is also useful if you dye multiple batches of fabric one after the other. Every batch you run through a jigger will look the same.

The controls on jigger machines also help you control your dyeing results. You can easily program a machine to use the right amount of dye at the right temperature to get the color results you need.

2. Longer Color Fastness

Some dyeing machines do a good color job at the start. However, their dyes might not last as long as you would like. The color of fabrics might fade, bleed, or run when the fabric is washed. This doesn't do your reputation any good.

Jigger dyeing machines typically give you more enhanced color fastness. They squeeze out excess dye and steam treat it to ensure that the dye takes. Your fabrics are less likely to suffer from color running problems, and you'll get a reputation for producing high-quality products.

3. Better Cost Efficiencies

You ideally want your dyeing machines to be as cost-effective as possible. This isn't just a question of getting low upfront purchasing deals. You also have to think about how much it will cost you to run a machine.  

Jigger dyeing machines have lower running costs than other alternatives. For example, they use less water than an open vat dyeing machine. They can also handle larger fabric batches while delivering consistent results. You won't need to make as many dyeing runs to fulfill your orders. The fewer runs you make, the more cost-efficient your processes will be.

Plus, you can use jigger machines on a variety of fabrics. They can even handle delicate materials that some dyeing equipment would damage. You won't have to buy multiple machines to deal with different types of fabric work.

About Me

Making Manufacturing Easier

After working in the backroom of my favorite candy manufacturer for years, I decided to talk with my boss about problems that were slowing things down. I felt really silly bringing up issues, because I had never actually talked with my superiors before. It was incredible to see how impressed they were about my ideas. After I mentioned a few places where production was getting bottlenecked, my bosses decided to put me in charge. I have learned tons of ways to make manufacturing easier, and I want to use this website to share them with you. You never know--this information could land you a job promotion.
