Trützschler Nonwovens, a leading machinery manufacturer, will present its latest solutions for efficient nonwoven production, with a focus on high-quality webs and low conversion costs, at the INDEX17 exhibition for nonwovens, which will be held from 4-7 April in Geneva, Switzerland.

A major point at the show will be carding concepts for creating perfect webs for hygiene and other applications, the company reports. According to the manufacturer, many end products require distinctive web characteristics, therefore, Trützschler Nonwovens continuously extends its range of fibre treatment, carding and web forming machinery.

“At INDEX, we invite for discussions on airlay cards, random cards and the various configurations of our proven standard roller card,” says the company.

Bonding and hydroentangling

In the bonding process, often a different type of challenge arises when productivity and efficiency become an issue.

“Take for instance chemical bonded webs: with the new Trützschler High-Speed Foulard for the application of liquid binding agents we address line speed. Various optimisations on rolls (patent pending) and sub-components allow for increasing the production speed of lightweight webs by up to 50%,” the company explains.

Hydroentangling and drying are a third focus point at INDEX because these processes are always worth a detailed discussion. For decades, both the AquaJet and the multi-drum dryer have been on top of Trützschler Nonwovens’ R&D agenda. “We are looking forward to discuss the various configurations, new features and the most efficient spunlacing and drying processes,” the company reports.
