Mr. Mario Lisandro Bertoni

Mr. Mario Lisandro Bertoni
President of
Maliber Industia e Comercio Textil Ltda.

Why you decided to buy VORTEX861?
Mr. M. Lisandro

Since of MJS release I had interest in to buy machines with Muratec air jet technology, but was after the ITMA 2007 that I really decided to buy VORTEX861 because I could see that the air jet technology has a big evolution.
So I was convinced that it was the time to make investment in this new technology.

Which are your expectations about VORTEX861?
Mr. M. Lisandro

Nowadays we produce ring yarn and OE yarn and just started to produce VORTEX yarn from Feb. 2009. I believe that there is a strong tendency of VORTEX yarn replaces ring combed cotton yarn and synthetic yarn, as there is a tendency of ring carded yarn to be replaced by OE.
So, I think that in near future , the VORTEX will replace the ring yarn system.
What kind of yarn MALIBER will produce in the VORTEX861?
Mr. M. Lisandro

We will produce Ne40/1 combed cotton 100% for weaving, Ne30/1 combed cotton 100% for knitting, Ne 40/1 Polyester/Combed Cotton, Ne30/1 Polyester/Carded Cotton , Polyester/Viscose and viscose 100% besides some special blends.

What characteristics do you think are more important in VORTEX861's yarn?
Mr. M. Lisandro

Certainly the most important characteristic is high resistance to pilling and abrasion. Every trial that we did, showed us that the VORTEX861's yarn reached a high level of quality and fabric have more durability due to the less hairiness and high wash resistance.
