In the lead up to the IMB international clothing machinery exhibition which takes place in Cologne, Germany from 30 May to 3 June, some of the key suppliers reveal what is new in the world of pressing.

Increasing variations in garment types, styles, sizes and fabrics, combined with a general reduction in order sizes, bring additional challenges for the producers of pressing and finishing equipment.
