Oerlikon Nonwoven at Anex-Since 2021

Innovation in Textiles
 |  Shanghai, China


At this year’s Anex-Since exhibition in Shanghai, China, Oerlikon Nonwoven will showcase market and customer-oriented solutions for hygiene, medical, filtration and other industrial applications.

Between July 22 and 24, 2021, visitors to the trade fair will be presented with the Neumünster, Germany-based systems constructor’s extensive product portfolio.

Solutions include a broad range of spunbond technology products and services. The process for manufacturing geotextiles from polyester or polypropylene, for example, has been optimised, and for hygiene and medical nonwovens, new QSR (Quality Sized Right) systems ensure competitive solutions combined with innovative features to enable differentiation within the market.

Sophisticated filter media and related products can be easily and efficiently manufactured with the company’s optimised meltblown technology. Whether as a stand-alone system with one or several positions, as ‘plug and produce’ installations for already existing systems. or in conjunction with other technologies, the Oerlikon Nonwoven meltblown process enables cost-efficient manufacturing with the quality requirements of tomorrow.

Pulp or cellulose fibres as the raw material for manufacturing nonwovens are currently virtually unrivalled in terms of sustainability and environmental compatibility. Today, there is huge demand for manufacturing solutions for high-quality, lightweight airlaid nonwovens with economic production speeds and system throughputs. The patented Oerlikon Nonwoven formation process permits the homogeneous mixing of the most diverse raw materials, while simultaneously guaranteeing evenness and homogeneous fibre laying, even for nonwovens with low running meter weights. This technology is also increasingly gaining significance in sustainable recycling applications.

Also being showcased is the Procter & Gamble-patented Phantom technology for hygiene products and wipes. Oerlikon Nonwoven is the sole worldwide licensee for this technology – a superior alternative for manufacturing wet wipes from pulp and polymer fibres. Phantom offers ecological, performance and cost advantages over conventional processes, with consumer tests conducted across the globe confirming the resulting material’s superiority. As a result of dispensing with hydroentanglement and subsequent drying, the process helps make the materials even more sustainable. Targeted process management allows the optimal setting of the relevant product parameters such as softness, tenacity, dirt absorption and liquid absorption.
