At the INDEX nonwovens show in Geneva yesterday, Andritz secured an order from Albaad Massuot Yitzha to supply a neXline wetlace hybrid line for its Dimona plant in Israel.

The line will produce a wide variety of pulp-based wet wipes and is scheduled for start-up during the third quarter 2023.

It combines inline drylaid and wetlaid web forming with hydroentanglement and drying, including quality control equipment and a Metris Industry 4.0 package.

All components will be delivered by Andritz and are designed to produce first-class fabrics, including biodegradable, carded-pulp and flushable/dispersible nonwovens for end uses as wipes.

 “Our production line gives Albaad enormous flexibility in the production of wipes,” said Tobias Schäfer, vice president of sales at Andritz Nonwoven. “In addition, the Metris digitalization package by Andritz will provide the company with highly efficient and smart operation.”

 “Our knowledge and experience in drylaid and wetlaid technology, together with the state-of-the-art equipment supplied by Andritz, will enable us to provide the market with natural-source nonwovens and the best answer to the market demand,” added Gadi Choresh, President of the Nonwovens Division at Albaad

Albaad is one of the world’s three largest wet wipe manufacturers.
