Andritz is to supply the first spunlace line to Uzbekistan.

A complete neXline spunlace system will be delivered to Uzbek cotton spinning specialist Texygen Textile with start-up scheduled for the first quarter of 2023.

The equipment will process high-quality cotton fibres in a fully integrated production line, from bleaching to winding. Texygen will use the technology to produce spunlace wipes made from 100% cotton, opening up new market opportunities for the company.

The line will be configured to minimise fibre loss and enable Texygen to produce a high-end spunlace fabric that will allow it to serve the international medical industry with premium-quality spunlace wipes.

“We are very proud to be a pioneer in the spunlace industry in our country,” said Texygen owner Rasulov Ikrom. “We have commissioned Andritz to supply our first spunlace line, and their know-how relating to the carding machine, among other units, will enable us to produce premium-quality, nonwoven cotton roll goods.”

Established in 2010, Texygen is a frontrunner in the Uzbekistan textile industry, especially in cotton spinning. The company is headquartered in Tashkent.
