Drying is one of the most delicate phases in leather finishing: to achieve a uniform and correct result, numerous variables must be perfectly managed in terms of processing parameters, leather characteristics and production processes.
For over 60 years in the production of leather finishing machinery, Fratelli Carlessi has been developing leather drying tunnels in order to fully control the finishing process by optimizing working time, energy consumption and environmental impact.
Heated air curing tunnels with radiant panels or infrared lamps and leather drying cabinets for R&D laboratories: these are extremely advanced tannery drying systems with high thermal and technological efficiency.
Static tunnel dryer
Leather drying cabinet for laboratory
Tunnel EB is an electrically heated leather drying machine, suitable for working up to 120°C on small production batches, with a centrifugal ventilation system and electronic thermostat for recirculation and heating air management.
Completion of finishing and drying lines
Fratelli Carlessi offers accessories and additional solutions to make tannery machine lines more high-performance, tailored to customers' needs.
Integrated heat recovery unit
Hot air recovery system of the air expelled from the tunnel to pre-heat the finishing booths, in order to maximise energy savings.
Automation of drying tunnels for tannery
Interface for production supervision with integrated PLC and 21" colour industrial computer, connectable to the local LAN network via Ethernet connection for remote assistance, in view of Industry 4.0.
Bridges and handling mats
Possibility of integrating transfer belts and connecting bridges into finishing lines, to transform several cabins and tunnels into independent finishing lines.
