Brückner, a leading producer of finishing and thermal treatment lines for the nonwovens and textile industry, will exhibit its product portfolio at the INDEX trade fair in Geneva from 4-7 April.

In the nonwovens sector the Brückner portfolio comprises all types of application systems, thermal treatment lines, dryers, as well as cutting and batching units. At this year’s INDEX, Brückner will present its customers with the new developments and improvements in the field of belt dryers.

New developments

The design of the high-performance dryer SUPRA-FLOW BH, which had been particularly developed for the air-through drying of light hydroentangled nonwovens, has been optimised. This type of dryer is characterised by its particularly high evaporation capacity, a high-energy efficiency, the gentle material transport and an excellent drying homogeneity, the manufacturer reports.

Another new development is the SUPRA-FLOW BE-ADL belt dryer developed for ADL products for thermo-fusion of card nonwovens. In the design of this dryer particular attention was paid to a gen-tle fabric transport, a high temperature accuracy and a precise air control. The air circulation in this dryer follows also the air-through principle.

Brückner’s portfolio

In the last decades Brückner supplied many lines and dryers for the international nonwovens industry. The final use of the nonwovens is manifold and range from the construction trade to the garment and automobile industry to medical textiles, cleaning or care articles and filter materials.

Very different application systems are used for these articles, screen printing and slop-pad coaters, coating machines, flocking units, powder scattering units, spray booths or foam impregnation units or padders. Depending on the purposes, Brückner also offers different dryers matching the customers’ individual needs and processes.

Brückner’s portfolio comprises among other systems also flat dryers with one or several fabric passages, vertical dryer, cylinder dryers, drum dryers, airlaid dryers, infra-red radiation dryers, high temperature dryers and combinations thereof.

“Particularly in case of lines with large working widths Brückner gained a very positive reputation in the last years,” the company reports. “Many very large lines are in operation worldwide, the largest has a working width of more than seven meters and has been designed for the heat-setting of geo nonwovens.”
