Tubular Pad

The Delta-Nit Pad begins the finishing process after dyeing, bleaching, or scouring of circular knit fabrics. The Delta-Nit Pad processes either single or double strands of fabric and is available in either a two- or four-roll setup. Designed to be operated by only one person, the Delta-Nit Pad handles detwisting, spreading, extracting and chemical application.

  • Polyurethane roll covering
  • Stainless steel guards
  • AC inverter controls
  • Patented Touch-O-Matic low pressure spreading system
  • Detwisting Entry
The detwisting process begins at the hydraulic-powered turntable which is installed in the floor at the front of the Delta-Nit Pad. The heavy duty turntable uses an inverter controlled soft starting pump that minimizes the stress on the turntable. Our optional power-driven cloth lifter, torque compensator and automatic detwisting sensor removes the twist from dyeing and carries the fabric tension-free to the Delta-Nit Pad.

Company details

Engineered Quality

Founded in 1929, Navis TubeTex is a leader in finishing machinery for the global textile industry. Based in Lexington, North Carolina, Navis TubeTex designs, engineers and manufactures the world’s leading machinery for the global knit, woven, nonwoven, technical and geotextile industries.

TubeTex was founded in Woodside, New York in 1929 by Samuel “Pop” Cohn. The company supplied machinery for finishing “tubular” knit fabrics.

Since then, the customer base has grown and diversified into many areas outside the core “tubular” knit business such as wovens, open-width knits, nonwovens, technical textiles, home furnishings, carpet and plastic film.

Reflecting the diversification and “navigation” into new areas the company name was changed to “Navis TubeTex” in 2006.

It was during this same year that Will Motchar was named President and Chief Executive Officer having previously been the Vice President of Global Sales & Marketing. In 2011, Motchar teamed with the Capitala Group, based in Charlotte, NC, to purchase the company.

Today the company is flourishing through an ever increasing commitment to organic growth of new technologies and products with a special focus on “green” technologies that decreases water, chemical and energy usage for its customers.

In addition of internal product development, Navis TubeTex continues to acquire strategic brands to better serve existing customers while expanding its customer base.
