TENAX company profile: Process and Technology

THE PRODUCTION PROCESS

THE “LEAN” PHILOSOPHY OF THE TENAX PROCESS

"If you always do what you’ve always done, you’ll always get what you’ve always got” (H. Ford).

  • Producing stable processes for continuous improvement
  • Rendering problems visible in order to attack and solve with POKA-YOKE solutions (fool proofing)

 

People who solve problems and improve processes!
This is also why we apply the A.P.S. (www.apsthebook.com) problem solving methodology.

FLEXIBILITY OF PRODUCTION LINES detailed knowledge + internal technological know-how

TENAX designs and builds extremely flexible production systems which are capable of being adapted into a range of netting that is unrivalled, in terms of size, type of mesh, and raw materials employed (polypropylene and polyethylene), as is borne out by the 2,000 plus products that TENAX is able to offer.

AUTOMATED CONTINUOUS CYCLE OF OPERATING LINES

A sophisticated monitoring system applied to all automated production equipment which makes continual checks on every product batch.
The provided data allows the process to be kept under constant control with the dual benefit of both production planning and quality control.

THE TECHNOLOGY

CONTRIBUTION TO THE EVOLUTION OF THE EXTRUSION PROCESS

Since the sixties, TENAX has pursued the philosophy of on-going technological innovation.
TENAX’s contribution to the evolution of traditionally used extrusion processes has been significant, having radically modified and improved them with the aim of fully developing their potential.
One example is the series of reticular filtration pipes which TENAX created in order to respond to a demand for products designed to offer environmental compatibility.

THE STRETCHING PROCESS

TENAX has perfected and patented an exclusive mono-axial and bi-axial stretching process for netting, which can orientate the polymer molecules in a regular fashion and provide “leading-edge” products in terms of physical and mechanical characteristics as well as performance. Giving even the lightest of netting, exceptional resistance to traction.

INNOVATIVE BONDING OF DIFFERENT MATERIALS

Special facilities were designed and built for bonding netting and fabrics using both heat and cold through a gluing machine, and therefore obtaining totally new applicable solutions that respond to the latest expectations of industry, agriculture and civil engineering.

FILM DIE-CUTTING PROCESS AND MOBILE FLAPS

TENAX has developed a new line that is completely focused on die-cut products. This technology allows for the production of highly technological products with a 3D structure that can adapt to received pressure. This solution prevents swelling of the film due to wind and keeps it in the required position.
