ANDRITZ, an international technology group combines the expertise of three leaders in the nonwovens and textile industries with long-standing and successful traditions: Asselin-Thibeau, KÃ¼sters to present its nonwovens and textile production technologies at the upcoming Hightex exhibition, all set to begin from 11 to 13 September in Istanbul.
The company has been active on the Turkish market for many years and provides full lines and individual solutions for spunlace, wetlaid, needlepunch, bonding and finishing for spunbond applications, and textile calenders.
In the spunlace sector, for direct or crosslapped lines, Andritz focuses on highest performance with regard to productivity, fabric quality, process reliability, and energy consumption. For high capacities and the production of lightweight fabrics (with a minimum of 20 gsm at a remarkably low MD/CD ratio), the combination of TT card and Jetlace Essentiel hydroentanglement process has been well accepted in the market, according to the manufacturer.
The in-house expertise of Andritz in through-air dryer technologies and in developing high-performance systems brings new process solutions to the spunlace industry. Andritz customers now have the opportunity to reduce energy consumption in their lines consistently thanks to the new Andritz drying solution neXecodry, the company reports.
In the needlepunch sector, Andritz nonwovens products are said to generate high added value. For both light and heavy fabrics, Andritz neXline needlepunch optimizes the production rate of every individual machine along the line, providing higher tensile strength, better MD/CD ratios, or greater evenness.
Delivering equal strength performance in both directions, with excellent fabric resilience, is said to generate fibre savings by further reducing the fabricâ€™s average weight. This can shorten payback times and increase return on investment for Andritzâ€™s customers, according to the manufacturer.
Andritz is also a system supplier of complete wetlaid nonwoven lines for innovative and versatile end-uses in hygiene, medical, and technical product ranges. In particular, the Andritz Wetlace process is suited for production of flushable, dispersible, and 100% biodegradable wipes.
In finishing of nonwovens, Andritz provides high-performance neXcal calenders for thermobonding, embossing, laminating, and calibrating.
For wet finishing with functional chemicals, Andritz supplies padders and kiss roll systems with suitable dosing stations. The textile calender product line is complemented by the high-performance teXcal trike, specially designed for technical textiles.
Andritz is a leading supplier of plants, equipment, and services for hydropower stations, the pulp and paper industry, the metalworking and steel industries, and for solid/liquid separation in the municipal and industrial sectors.
