AKM to exhibit textile calender & roll technology at Shanghaitex
Jun '09
Andritz Küsters, will present their complete product range of calenders and rolls for the textile industry as well as machinery for the nonwoven industry at Shanghaitex 2009 within the German Pavilion. The enterprise from Krefeld, Germany is well supported by their representatives AKM (based in Shanghai and Hong Kong), who have derived from Kuesters Far East and Kuesters Shanghai. All AKM sales and service staff are extremely familiar with the Andritz Küsters products.

Under the motto “textile eXcellence” Andritz Küsters focuses upon their long experience and comprehensive knowledge in calender and roll technology. “Textile calenders and rolls are made in Krefeld. And that for over 140 years!” states Andreas Lukas, Vice President of Andritz Küsters. This long experience of Küsters and Kleinewerfes has been the foundation of the new Andritz Küsters teXcal technology. “The two unique deflection controlled roll systems S-Roll and HyCon Roll are our core competence. Our clients get precisely the right calender technology their product needs.”

With a maximum line force of 400 N/mm the teXcal s-roll with deflection control raises the bar to set new standards, especially in technical textiles which require defined low air permeability as e.g. parachute silk. Other deflection controlled calender systems with synthetic coatings are limited to a line force of 300 N/mm. This means that the fabric needs multiple calendering, whereas the teXcal s-roll with especially adjusted surface technology can achieve best compaction results in just one passage.

The original S-Roll technology from Andritz Küsters, Krefeld, shows excellent performance in a great variety of textile processes. Andritz Küsters and AKM offer worldwide comprehensive and competent service for all S-Roll systems in the textile industry, including repair, overhauling, original spare parts for roll and control system as well as original spare rolls.

In addition, Andritz Küsters present their entire range of services for the nonwoven industry. This includes leading calender technology as well as the latest developments in wet finishing of nonwovens and complete lines for wetlaid nonwovens. The Andritz Küsters and AKM team would be pleased to discuss the latest developments and services with you in Shanghai / SNIEC at the German Pavilion, Booth W2 B54 from 12 to 15 June 2009.
