Top Ahiba Details
- High accuracy and repeatability – State-of-the-art microprocessor control and sophisticated algorithms ensure temperature regulation at every step of your process.
- Improved productivity – Intuitive multi-language user interface easily recalls up to 99 locally stored programs that quickly match production processes. Up to 20 dyeing positions in the dyeing unit ensure that a large number of samples can be dyed accurately. Dosing options are available for swift addition of liquid or powder auxiliaries during the dyeing process.
- Wide application support – Multiple beaker sizes and dual agitation methods to meet the widest range of textile dyeing applications.
- High efficiency and low environmental impact – High efficiency infrared lamps, circulation fans, and a sealed dyeing compartment guarantee that the radiant temperature transfer from chamber to beaker is optimised. Smart industrial design and modern materials improve safety of operators, and reduces heat loss from the dyeing chamber, making the Datacolor Ahiba one of the lowest powered units on the market.
