Trützschler Nonwovens to display newest innovations at TECHTEXTIL
At the TECHTEXTIL 2009 (16–18-06-09, Hall: 3.0; Booth: B03) in Frankfurt/Main, the Trützschler Nonwovens Group (Fleissner, Erko- Trützschler and Trützschler Card Clothing) will present on a common booth its newest innovations in the field of nonwoven technology.
1. Trützschler Nonwoven Group: Fleissner and Erko Trützschler as system supplier
Fleissner and Erko-Trützschler will present the full capabilities of the Trützschler Nonwovens Group. Erko-Trützschler is specialized in the production of machinery for fiber opening and blending, web formation and needle punching, Fleissner is the specialist for web bonding such as thermobonding, binder bonding and hydroentanglement, finishing, drying of nonwovens. 2 years after forming the Trützschler Nonwovens Group the results of the joined forces can be seen through new developments in the Nonwoven sector.
2. New Systems for Hydroentangled Products
The first project within the group was to develop a new card for the requirements of hydroentangled products. Target was a high capacity of up to 400 kg/h/m with a good MD/CD ration of 3:1 or better and a weight range of 20-100 gsm which competes with a 3 doffer card. All targets are fulfilled with the new Random Card EWK413.
After running various trials with customers it can proudly be said that the EWK413 is especially good for cotton based webs. The web quality and the capacity are outstanding. Capacities of up to 300 kg/h/m have been realized with 100 % bleached comber noils.
At the same time Fleissner and Trützschler worked on a solution for small scale lines. As a result the newest member of the Fleissner water entanglement family is now standardized and commercially available. In combination with the new Trützschler TC-07-H card with web take off it will present a very economical solution for the production of cotton pads and other cotton products. The system serves the need of institutes and companies requiring research and development work, producers in niche markets, as well as "beginners" in the nonwovens world.
The main features are:
• Working width of 500 and 1,000 mm
• Pressures up to 400 bar
• Speeds up to 55 m/min
Both carding systems (EWK413 and TC07-H) are available in the Fleissner Technology Centre for trials with the Fleissner Hydroentanglement technology.
To be able to offer also complete Nonwoven Lines in all different thermobonding applications Fleissner developed a new belt oven. It follows the group's philosophy to be able to provide for every product the best and most economical solution.
In combination with the various webforming systems (Airlay, Roller Card, Cross Lapper and Direct Bonding) available through Erko-Trützschler the machine can be used in various applications such as:
Coating substrates; Fiberfill webs; Upholstery webs; Industrial nonwovens; Geotextiles; Nonwovens for the building industry, for thermal and acoustic insulation; Pressed fibre parts; Textile finishing; Functional clothing; Automotive nonwovens; Shoes and synthetic leather; Household wipes; Medical and sanitary nonwovens
