What is "Stentering" - Definition & Explanation

The term used for passing fabric through big continuous ovens called stenters. In addition to just drying stenters can align fabrics, set fabrics, apply chemicals to fabrics via pad mangles. Stenter efficiency (i.e. The amount of time they are actually used to dry fabric compared to the time they are switched on) has a large bearing on overall resource utilisation efficiency.
