OBleach is the new ozone, patent-pending process, which “returns to the future” with an authentic, sustainable and cool bleach without hazardous chemicals. This is possible thanks to our All-in-One system by Tonello, a single machine that contains the most recent generation of finishing technologies: ECOfree 2, NoStone®+, UP and Core.
The rollout of OBleach times well with companies that are aligned with 2020 goals in Greenpeace’s #Detox My Fashion campaign, which bans potassium permanganate from the supply chain.
This sophisticated new system allows users to create vintage effects on jeans with lasers that are then transported via a robot and loaded into an ‘all-in-one’ washing machine equipped with ozone bleaching, stone-free abrasion and spray technology for chemical applications, after which the jeans are simply tumble dried.
The way this “denim laundry of the future” works according to Tonello, is that once a pair of ready-made jeans are laser finished on a mannequin, they can be loaded robotically into the front-loading all-in-one machine.
The system saves energy, reducing water and chemical consumption, cutting down processing times and total production costs: respecting the environment, reducing manual labour and protecting the health of operators. The All-in-one system is the perfect symphony of creativity, technology and performance. It has now become a reality with the arrival of ECOfree 2 being added to the already proven NoStone®, Core, and Up.
Core is a new technology that can be applied to Tonello washing and dyeing machines of various sizes. It is capable of creating uniform or contrasting effects that go beyond fleeting fashions to bring out the full potential of the garment. Core makes it possible also to apply a wide range of products, while considerably reducing consumption.
ECOfree 2 is the latest washing technology using ozone in both the water and the air. This guarantees the best performance on the garment, fewer manual operations and a huge reduction in water and chemical consumption.
NoStone® is the new denim-washing system developed by Tonello in collaboration with Levi Strauss & Co. It is designed to overcome the economic, mechanical and environmental limitations of the stone-washing process.
UP patented technology reduces the liquor ratio to unparalleled levels, saving water and energy and making water filling and draining faster. UP is a revolutionary innovation applicable to all existing Tonello machines, including the least recent: Tonello machines do not age, they evolve.
