ANDRITZ Nonwoven highlights its cutting-edge technologies for the Asian markets at SINCE 2017

Graz, September 25, 2017. ANDRITZ Nonwoven, part of international technology Group ANDRITZ, will be presenting innovative nonwovens production solutions that target technologies for the Asian markets at SINCE 2017 in Shanghai, China (November 08-10, hall 1, booth 1K10).

ANDRITZ Nonwoven aXcess calender range – the key to spunbond applications

neXcal twin aXcess, the latest development in the ANDRITZ aXcess calender range, originates from the reputed and proven technology of the neXcal twin. With a speed range of up to 600 m/min and a standard roll width of up to 3,800 mm, the neXcal twin aXcess is a spot-on solution for medium-capacity production lines. With one engraving roll in production and one in the stand-by position, the three-roll calender warrants significant flexibility in the medium-capacity nonwovens market. The neXcal compact two-roll calender completes the ANDRITZ aXcess calender portfolio.

Raising the bar for Chinese market standards: ANDRITZ neXline spunlace eXcelle with TT card and JetlaceEssentiel Chinese nonwovens manufacturers are increasingly requiring higher capacities and top-class quality for spunlace nonwoven products serving local and export markets. ANDRITZ Nonwoven has the right solution and offers neXline spunlace eXcelle with TT card web forming and JetlaceEssentiel hydroentanglement units for very high capacities. Several lines have been sold this year, the first line is scheduled to begin operations before the end of 2017. Cutting-edge Chinese nonwovens producers are clearly targeting this configuration.

In addition, ANDRITZ Nonwoven offers a neXline spunlace eXcelle in crosslapped configuration, which is especially suited for technical products and disposable face masks.
