Focus on wipes efficiency for Truetzschler

At the ANEX/SINCE 2021 exhibition in Shanghai from July 22-24, Truetzschler Nonwovens, headquartered in Egelsbach, Germany, will highlight high-performance solutions for the efficient production of disinfectant and biodegradable wipe materials.

The classic combination of polyester and viscose fibres combines exceptional wipe characteristics with affordable raw material costs.

For such high-speed carding/spunlacing processes Truetzschler supplies production line configurations with three roller cards. An extended carding section not only enhances web quality but also fully utilises AquaJet’s spunlacing power to deliver up to four tons of nonwovens per hour.

Truetzschler’s proven CP (carded/pulp) nonwoven line concepts with built-in flexibility meanwhile allow the production of eco-friendly baby and body wipes. These lines are able to process various pulp types for the wet-laid layer and various fibre types for the carded layer. The result is a broad range of CP products optimised for specific requirements.

Truetzschler Card Clothing will also introduce a new generation of condenser wires at the show.

Condensing rollers in the card’s doffing section both increase strength in cross direction and the web’s volume but are prone to fibre accumulations. To minimise this risk the new clothings feature a unique tooth geometry and are manufactured by a special combined surface treatment and hardening process.
