Istanbul-headquartered Lotus Teknik Tekstil is to install a Metris All-in-One digitalisation platform for its new Wetlace CP nonwovens production line that is being installed by Andritz.

The Andritz Metris All-in-One platform provides full support for industrial plants throughout their entire life cycle. It combines a complete range of functionalities for professional production management, simulation and optimisation using the latest artificial intelligence methods, in addition to providing  cyber security and integrated condition monitoring with smart sensors.

It will support Lotus in further optimising the operating efficiency of its line by ensuring a stable production process via data collection and process monitoring, reducing operational costs through optimised production traceability and energy monitoring, improving final product quality and reducing production waste.

The Andritz digital technologies combined under the Metris technology brand reflect the state of the art in the IIoT/Industry 4.0 sector and provide comprehensive support to customers. Metris products help customers achieve their production and corporate goals in terms of increasing the efficiency and profitability of plants, optimising the use of resources and avoiding breaks in production.

“We have already gained positive experience with a Metris installation on our spunlace line from Andritz, and we are confident that the comprehensive Metris All-In-One solution will take the production performance of our new Wetlace CP line to an even higher level,” said Ceyhun Zincirkiran, co-owner and managing director of Lotus.

A member of the Sapro group, Lotus is one of the top three producers of wet wipes globally.
