French nonwoven machinery to present at Geneva Palexpo

Jan '08
Every 3 years Index takes place at Geneva Palexpo. Next April 15-18 this major event for the nonwovens industry will receive more than 12 000 visitors from more than 100 countries. Machinery is part of the industry, 6 French machinery manufacturers will showcase their latest innovations, meet their customers, listen to their needs.

INDEX 2008 is the world's leading nonwovens exhibition. It will take place during April 15 to 18 at GENEVA PALEXPO, Switzerland.

They no more consider themselves as machine suppliers only but technology partners. “With an average growth rate of 7% to 8%, the nonwoven industry is a dynamic sector”, states Bruno Ameline, Chairman of the French Textile Machinery Manufacturers' Association (UCMTF).

One of the reasons is that nonwovens cover an extremely large array of applications. From hygiene single use products (diapers, cotton pads, medical textiles, wipes..) to automotive carpets and headliners, geotextiles, clothing, coating substrates, isolation and filtration products and the likes, nonwovens are part of everyone's everyday life.

Thanks to the encounter of ever renewed market needs with the pro-active approach of nonwovens producers and machinery manufacturers, many new applications have been, are and will be successfully developed. They need an extensive search for more effective and more productive production processes.

“This is why, machinery manufacturers are an essential part of the Nonwoven industry” affirms Bruno Ameline. Many alternative production technologies have been developed, for web- and batt-forming processes (carded, spunbond, meltblown, airlaid, wetlaid, etc.) as much as for consolidation processes (thermobonding, needlepunchling, spunlacing, stitching, chemical bonding, etc.).
