BRUCKNER brings new concepts for functionalisation of textiles

Aug '08
BRÜCKNER Plant Technologies is in the market very well know as supplier of systems for the finishing of technical textiles. Despite the strong international competition, the company is proud to have gained in the last years further well known reference customers in different fields of the coating sector.

BRÜCKNER could also clearly enlarge its range of competence in the field of nonwovens technology. BRÜCKNER Plant Technology pioneers new technological ways in both fields: coating and nonwovens.

Innovative concepts for the functionalisation of textiles:
In the sector of functionalisation of textiles BRÜCKNER Plant Technologies (Leonberg / Germany) cooperates narrowly with the leading producers of coating polymeres. As an example we want to mention the cooperation with HUNTSMAN Textile Effects (Langweid am Lech/Germany) for the functionalisation of both sides of planifom textiles in one single drying step. This saves energy and costs.

In addition, the most different textiles - be it woven or knitted fabric, nonwovens or three-dimensional structures - are all over the world coated on tailor-made line concepts made by BRÜCKNER for the most different requirements. The possibilities of application range from protective clothing to a variety of technical appliances.

In the MEDTECH sector, incontinence articles are being coated with polyurethane, in the MOBILTECH sector air bags with silicone and truck tarpaulin with PVC. In the BUILDTECH sector acrylate coatings are used to reinforce roofing membranes made of nonwovens and in the INDUTECH sector phenol resins are used for abrasive cloth and glass fibre impregnations.

Innovative dryer concepts for the reinforcement and finishing of nonwovens:
High flexibility regarding the field of application with minimum energy consumption and low set-up times were some of the most important criteria in the development of the new POWER-THERM DT.

The possibility to set different temperatures and circulating air flows above and below the material is a unique feature. This feature - which was missing until now - limited the productivity of the line in particular for compound materials and coatings and was for years one of the most urgent requests of the customers.

The new POWER-THERM DT dryers are the perfect means for the thermal and chemical reinforcement and the finishing of nonwovens of all kinds. The first dryers of this type are already for more than one year successfully in operation. The customers' measurements confirm specific energy savings of up to one third and two-digit productivity increases compared to the up to now used systems. In addition, the customers are very satisfied about the low susceptibility to dirt and the very good accessibility.

In the meantime the second generation of the POWER-THERM DT series has been made ready for the market, enlarging the field of application by a new kind of combined air circulation system (nozzles and through-flow). Dryers of the first generation can be modified without problems.
