Apparel Industry: Steam Tunnel Finisher Air Seal Bags
We were recently tasked with refurbishing three steam tunnel finishers that have been discontinued by the manufacturer for years and there are no new parts available. In addition to fabricating multiple new parts to ensure the machines operate properly, the air seal bags needed to be replaced so the tunnel can evenly heat and finish garments efficiently. When we called around to various parts suppliers, no one had any information on where we could get these tunnel bags.
Using our resources, we reached out to a company that manufactures pressing machine pads and grid plates to see if they could manufacture custom replacement bags.
After providing them with a sample, they were able to recreate them to breathe new life into these steam tunnel finishers. This specific example was related to Sussman steam tunnel finishers, however; we are proud to announce that we are now able to obtain and resell air seal bags for a variety of steam tunnel finishers, including tunnel finishers from brands like Vibrasteam, Veit, and Colmac.
