International technology Group ANDRITZ will present comprehensive nonwovens and textile production technologies at Hightex/ITM 2016 in Istanbul (June 1-4, 2016, hall 11, booth no. 1124 A). ANDRITZ Nonwoven – comprising ANDRITZ Asselin-Thibeau, ANDRITZ Küsters, and ANDRITZ Perfojet – has been active successfully on the Turkish market for many years and provides full lines and individual solutions for spunlace, wetlaid, needlepunch, bonding and finishing for spunbond applications, and textile calenders.
New milestones in ANDRITZ spunlace technology
In the spunlace sector, whether for direct or crosslapped lines, ANDRITZ focuses on highest performance with regard to productivity, fabric quality, process reliability, and energy consumption. For high capacities and the production of lightweight fabrics (with a minimum of 20 gsm at a remarkably low MD/CD ratio), the combination of TT card and Jetlace Essentiel hydroentanglement process has been well accepted in the market.
The in-house expertise of ANDRITZ in through-air dryer technologies and in developing high-performance systems brings new and efficient process solutions to the spunlace industry. ANDRITZ customers now have the opportunity to reduce energy consumption in their lines consistently thanks to the new ANDRITZ drying solution neXecodry.
ANDRITZ neXline spunlace: high productivity, fabric quality, and process reliability – low energy consumption
Continuous innovation in needlepunch technology
In the needlepunch sector, innovative ANDRITZ nonwovens products generate high added value. For both light and heavy fabrics, ANDRITZ neXline needlepunch optimizes the production rate of every individual machine along the line, providing higher tensile strength, better MD/CD ratios, or greater evenness. Delivering equal strength performance in both directions, with excellent fabric resilience, will generate fiber savings by further reducing the fabric’s average weight. This can shorten payback times and increase return on investment for ANDRITZ’s customers.
