Kemtech is honoured & proud to be associated with Magnatech International for more than past two decades during which the Indian high-pressure hydraulic hose industry adopted its machinery as a industry standard for its hydraulic hose production needs.

Magnatech International, L.P. is known as the leading producer of quality braiding machinery for the hydraulic, industrial and automotive hose industries. The company was founded as Textile Machine Works (TMW) in Reading, Pennsylvania, in 1892 by German entrepreneurs Ferdinand Thun and Henry Janssen, and served the ornamental fabric industry. During the next 40 years, TMW designed and built the most advanced braiding machines available and installed them in factories around the world. In the 1930’s, TMW entered a new a market and manufactured machines designed to reinforce hydraulic and industrial hose used in medium-and high-pressure applications. In 1968, TMW was acquired by Rockwell International.

Twenty years later, David L. Thun – grandson of Ferdinand Thun – and his partner, Paul Kozloff, purchased the braiding machinery division from Rockwell, and named our company Magnatech International, Inc.

For more than a century now, Magnatech International has supplied the world with superior braiding, wire spiraling and bobbin winding machines. Customers depend on us for uncompromised quality. Today Magnatech produces a majority of the reinforcing machinery used to manufacture industrial and hydraulic hose. Our commitment to quality control and cost efficiency allows us to meet your demands for faster and more efficient hose-manufacturing systems.

In 2001, Magnatech designed, built and moved into its state-of-art facility. A 1,120-square-meter stockroom dedicated to storing over 6,000 different components is also contained in our new facility. These components serve Magnetch’s broad range of equipment and are available for immediate dispatch.

Customer service is our top priority. A state-of-the-art 560 square meters Research and Development Center housing the full range of Magnatech machines is available for testing and customer trials and to demonstrate spiral winding and rotary braiding technology for your particular products. Our engineers work closely with you to ensure that specific application requirements are met. We also offer technical seminars that show you how to properly maintain and operate machines for maximum productivity.

Magnatech has about 90% of world market share of machinery for braided high pressure hydraulic hose production, 95% for spiral winded high pressure hydraulic hose production. Magnatech today has more than 100 wire & yarn braiders and Spiral winders "installed & successfully working in India" producing approximately 60 million meters of industrial & hydraulic hose per annum for past (2+) two plus decades.

Also it may not be inappropriate to point out that Magnatech has the largest population of imported braiders installed in India among all braider manufacturers worldwide & in fact the presently installed Magnatech machine population in India is manifolds of any other braider or spiral winders manufacturer as Magnatech is largest & the most reliable hose manufacturing machine manufacturer in the world.

Magnatech manufactures model (Rotary Braider) Model RB-2 which can produce individually - roughly 0.64 Million meters of hose per annum- its bobbin capacity is 13.63 kg's of wire/bobbin- RB-2 Carriers maintains constant tension & So resetting tensions is required every 4-5 weeks only- Carrier maintenance cost are negligible compare to maypole braiders- RB-2 easily converts from wire to yarn and yarn to wire with minimal downtime- An RB-2 is typically 22% less expensive & at least 60+% more productive then a Maypole braider, If we consider machine price divided by carrier rpm.

Spare parts & lubricants for all Magnatech machines are available locally in India in Indian currency at Kemtech.
