Divine Brothers Installs Tenter Frame to Mill-Treat Cloth
Longstanding finishing supply company Divine Brothers installed its own tenter frame to mill-treat its own cloth.
Divine Brothers Company (Utica, New York) installed its own tenter frame for the process of mill-treating its own cloth. The family-run business has manufactured buffing wheels, polishing compounds and an assortment of complimentary finishing supplies since its founding in 1892.
Investing in a tenter frame for mill-treating allows Divine to treat its own material in various run-sizes to the stiffness that customers want. According to the company, this is a unique capability in the industry. The resulting flexibility will reduce associated material, freight and inventory costs. Currently, this project encompasses 8,000 square feet, but that could increase due to a growing customer base.
