ANDRITZ highlights top-notch technologies
for technical textiles and nonwovens
ANDRITZ Nonwoven, part
of international technology Group ANDRITZ, targeted processes
for technical nonwovens and textiles at Techtextil in Frankfurt.
In response to market demands, ANDRITZ Nonwoven has yet again
raised the bar for leading turnkey and individual solutions in
air-through bonding, needlepunch, spunlace, spunjet,
thermobonding, wetlaid, and technical textiles as well as
Real value with the right choice
The market share for durable applications, such as
geotextiles, agriculture, automotive, roofing, or home
furnishings, covers well over 50% of the nonwovens market.
ANDRITZ offers manifold technologies, which are perfectly suited
to these end uses. The supreme importance of uptime and
productivity is ensured by ANDRITZ’s service expertise.
technologies – a recipe for success
Driven by the vibrant market for durable nonwovens, ANDRITZ
presents the neXline needlepunch with the innovative, high-
speed Dynamic crosslapper, operating at up to 205 m/min at the
input. The renowned ProDyn capabilities are able to reduce fiber
consumption drastically. Profit from fabric weight evenness and
a significant cost reduction.
Another major asset is the “Dynamic Harmonic Shifter” (DHS),
which steadies higher machine frames that are susceptible to
vibration. DHS technology harmonizes the frequency to minimize
vibration effects, which could possibly ruin a machine. Another
added value is the productivity boost for such applications as
rib needling up to 20 m/min.
Yet another innovation is the ANDRITZ Nonwoven neXmatrix
simulator system. This system identifies, configures, and
optimizes various process solutions in order to streamline
functions. It answers specific needs such as production
capacity, width, versatility, investment payback, and fabric
range by configuring the production line to meet the exact
A single source for all wetlaid
The ANDRITZ neXline wetlaid opens the door for niche market
manufacturers offering products made from special fibers such as
aramid, carbon, micro-glass, and other high-tech fibers and is
the right choice for the production of the automotive,
aerospace, agricultural, construction, medical/hygiene, and
household end uses. Right down the line from stock preparation,
wet forming, drying, coating, and on to the winder, ANDRITZ
ensures that all components are harmonized. Numerous options are
available to meet individual needs.
Create added value for spunlaid
ANDRITZ offers two unique solutions: Spunjet Bond and Spunjet
Splittable. Spunjet Bond targets in-line hydroentanglement of
spunlaid filament for versatile applications such as roofing,
packaging, protective covering, hot gas filtration, and molding.
SpunjetSplittable focuses on advanced business opportunities
like acoustic and thermal insulation for durable fabrics.
This technology is also particularly useful for splitting
spunlaid bi-component filaments. Recently, the Nonwovens
Institute in Raleigh, NC, USA, invested in a Reicofil RF4
Spunbond line including ANDRITZ Spunjet equipment to build the
next generation of nonwoven applications.
