Trützschler will focus on the needs of the US market at the forthcoming IDEA nonwovens show in Miami from March 28-31, emphasising its local services and digital support for production processes.

The company has a broad portfolio of line concepts for the production of sustainable, biodegradable nonwovens. Cotton is an important raw material for US producers, which is why the company will feature efficient solutions for processing raw cotton, comber noils and blends of viscose and cotton. Another focus will be on the leading Voith/Trützschler concepts for wet-laid, hydroentangled WLS (wetlaid spunlace) and CP (carded pulp) nonwovens. High-quality nonwovens made from viscose fibres and NBSK pulp – the raw material for the paper industry – not only offer an excellent cost/performance ratio, but also a small CO2 footprint.

Trützschler Card Clothing will meanwhile showcase the benefits of its Z-wire, with a contour which keeps fibres on the roll even at the highest speeds, minimising fibre flight inside the card.

Nonwovens producers have two primary goals, the company says – guaranteeing quality  products and always keeping costs under control. Due to Covid-19, however, it has become increasingly rare fot the production floor to be manned by a fully trained team. In order to ensure lasting quality, Trützschler Nonwovens has developed a modular, digital work environment that systemises, digitizes and simplifies typical work processes. With the help of Industry 4.0 technologies, line, process and quality data relevant to a production lots can be stored, aggregated, visualised and analysed for process improvements.

With its headquarters in Charlotte, North Carolina and more than 100 employees, Trützschler USA is the first point of contact for all matters relating to American nonwovens producers. The company is able to equip and convert machines according to customer specifications (certified UL508A panel shop), carry out factory acceptance tests and a wide range of repairs from Charlotte.

Trützschler USA has most flat-top card and roller card clothings in stock and mobile service teams for rewiring are available 24/7.
