During India ITME from December 2-7, ANDRITZ Küsters, ANDRITZ Asselin-Thibeau, and ANDRITZ Perfojet will be presenting their expertise in complete lines and advanced systems for high-end technical nonwovens at booths G13/J12 and H7. ANDRITZ systems integrate features of various technologies and provide, within a global network, reliable solutions for all nonwovens segments also in the Indian market.
Complete spunlace system from ANDRITZ
In the spunlace sector, ANDRITZ is the leading machine manufacturer acting as system supplier and offering high-speed integrated production lines with an unequalled energy efficiency ratio: neXline spunlace – which includes the Excelle carding system, the Jetlace hydroentanglement process, the neXaqua dewatering unit, the Perfodry through-air dryer, and the neXcal twin embossing calender – provides major competitive advantages to spunlace producers. The optimum solution for top-speed spunlace lines for commodity products is a combination of Excelle card and Jetlace Essentiel, producing lightweight spunlace at very high capacity and low MD/CD ratio. For new, developing markets, the combination of the Axcess carding machine and the Jetlace Avantage hydroentanglement process is a proven concept, designed to produce lightweight fabrics at low operating costs.
With the Jetlace machine design, ANDRITZ Perfojet meets the high requirements of technical nonwovens producers. The Jetlace Evolution is perfectly designed for the production of durables, such as automotive and filtration substrates. It is equipped with a pre-wetting conveyor in order to control web compacting, maintain the nonwovens quality, and save energy.
Customized patterning solutions for unique spunlace fabrics
ANDRITZ (andritz.com) offers a full range of patterning and aperturing solutions by using calenders or sleeves. ANDRITZ Perfojet recently introduced a new 3D patterning technology called neXimaging. This innovative approach allows any kind of patterning and/or aperture at very high production speed. The sleeve has been designed to reproduce logos and artwork in 3D design with exceptional high quality of detail.
Needlepunching lines for geotextiles and filtration
With the ACS system, ANDRITZ Asselin-Thibeau is introducing its latest innovation in crosslapping technology, capable of handling bulky card webs when feeding a cross-lapper. At India ITME 2012, the focus will also be on the benefits of using the ProDyn technology, a feature guaranteeing uniformity of the web. Combined with the A50 needle loom series, this solution provides a clear competitive edge for end users.
New teXcal trike calender concept for high flexibility
ANDRITZ Küsters has developed a new calender design especially for the production of delicate, technical textiles with very high density: The teXcal trike is a 3-roll calender with S-Roll, Xpro Roll and heated steel roll in a triangular roll arrangement. This configuration allows extremely flexible production by using one or two nips. Both nips are individually adjustable without influencing the other nip’s deflection characteristics. In comparison to standard 3-roll calenders with vertical roll arrangement, the teXcal trike reduces seam loss to a minimum. With regard to the continuously increasing process requirements in the production of technical textiles, the proven deflection control of the S-Roll is combined with additional zone control in the Xpro Roll.
