Andritz to show latest nonwovens solutions at ITMA 2015
Austria based Andritz Nonwoven is presenting its latest nonwovens solutions in spunlace, needlepunch, wetlaid or wetlace and finishing of nonwovens and textiles at ITMA 2015 in Milan, in hall H3, booth B122.
“With a number of subsidiaries in its portfolio like Andritz Asselin-Thibeau, Andritz Küsters and Andritz Perfojet, Andritz Nonwoven provides turnkey solutions,” a press release from the company stated.
The Nexecodry allows to achieve reduction in energy consumption with Spunlace, Wetlace, and Airlace lines and production of high quality nonwoven fabrics with regard to high bulk and no pattern degradation.
After several years of development and field tests, the new solution available for the Andritz Nexdry and Perfodry through-air dryers has been launched on the market.
Wipes produced using the Andritz Wetlace process exceed the EDANA or INDA flushability standards, which will be demonstrated with a flushability tester at the booth at ITMA 2015.
The original Andritz Wetlace process combines wetlaid and hydroentanglement technologies, proven for producing flushable wipes from 100 per cent natural or renewable raw materials without chemical binders.
“In addition, Andritz has developed a new process to apply detailed artwork to flushable wipes,” the company added.
“This unique patterning and aperture process allows wipes producers to differentiate their products clearly with an almost unlimited number of possible patterns,” it explained.
Its key components, the Andritz Perfojet patterning unit and injector, will be displayed as exhibits at ITMA 2015.
Through an optimised needlepunch production with new high-speed crosslapper and Scada automation system, Andritz said it focuses on system solutions in needlepunching by steering the complete production process.
The new high-speed dynamic crosslapper D.630 from Andritz Asselin-Thibeau enables an increase of needlepunch production line capacity.
In combination with the Prodyn system, the D.630 is capable of reaching an infeed speed of up to 200 metres per minute, while the Isoprodyn system helps to further improve the product quality for light fabrics.
Due to the Andritz Scada system, recipes can be reproduced quickly and operators receive the relevant production information in real time.
It also provides a means of monitoring the production costs of every product reference, thus maximising their yield contribution, the advantages of which will be shown during ITMA.
Andritz further added that the Texcal Trike 3-roll textile calender has been developed especially for the demands in modern technical textiles production.
It is equipped with a heated steel roll and two individually adjustable system rolls in a triangular roll arrangement, thus allowing the fabric to be fed through the front nip, the rear nip, or both.
Compared to the traditional 3-roll calender design with vertical roll configuration, the fabric loss at the seam passage is reduced to a minimum and on an annual basis, offers a substantial economic advantage.
The optional Texmaster control system offers a broad spectrum of facilities for recording data, managing recipes, issuing alarm signals, conducting data analysis, and displaying trends. (AR)
