1. Uniform Drying

Achieving uniform drying across leather surfaces is challenging due to variations in thickness and density, requiring precise control over humidity and temperature.

2. Preservation of Properties

Proper drying is essential to preserve the natural properties of leather, such as softness, flexibility, and strength, while preventing damage from excessive heat or moisture.

3. Mold and Fungi Prevention

Moisture management is critical to prevent the growth of mold and fungi, which can compromise the quality and integrity of the leather.

4. Energy Efficiency

Traditional drying methods may consume significant energy and resources, leading to higher operational costs and environmental impact.
