The Swiss Oerlikon Group’s new nonwoven business unit received very positive feedback from visitors to this year’s nonwovens exhibition SINCE 2017, which ran from 8-10 November in Shanghai, China. Visitors to the attractively designed Oerlikon stand were especially interested in the spunbond technology for technical applications, according to the manufacturer.

Rainer Straub, Head of the Nonwoven Business Unit that had been newly created by the Oerlikon Manmade Fibers segment in the middle of the year, declared himself highly satisfied with the three lively exhibition days in the World Expo Exhibition and Convention Centre.

“The talks have shown that we are on the right path with our strategy and the development of our technologies. Especially the optimisations of our spunbond process and the resulting increase of nonwoven qualities in terms of strength and elongation impressed the visitors,” he said.

Also greatly in demand were Oerlikon’s meltblown and airlaid technologies, as well as the solutions for the manufacturing of wipes and other disposable nonwovens, which were offered in cooperation with Teknoweb Materials s.r.l.

“All in all, the Oerlikon group’s nonwoven team are delighted with the positive outcome and can look back in satisfaction on intensive talks of high quality with customers and prospects as well as numerous concrete inquiries,” the company reports.

Oerlikon is a leading technology group supplying growth markets with market-leading technologies and services for surface solutions, systems for manufacturing manmade fibres, transmission systems and drive solutions, as well as prevacuum and high vacuum technologies and pumps and the corresponding accessories.

With its Oerlikon Barmag and Oerlikon Neumag brands, Oerlikon Manmade Fibers segment is the market leader for manmade fibre filament spinning systems, texturing machines, BCF systems, staple fibre systems and artificial turf systems and – as a service provider – offers engineering solutions for the entire textile value added chain.

With the expansion of the product range to include polycondensation systems and their key components, the company now caters to the entire process – from the monomer all the way through to the textured yarn. The primary Oerlikon Barmag markets are in Asia, and – for Oerlikon Neumag – in the USA, Turkey and China.
