The Trützschler Group’s companies will exhibit at this year’s Techtextil exhibition for technical textiles and nonwovens that will be held from 4-7 May in Frankfurt, presenting innovative concepts and technologies with a focus on efficiency and quality.

A special topic will be the cooperation with Voith Paper in the area of wet-laid and spunlaced nonwovens. Although flushable wipes being the main application, tailor-made solutions for other end products will also be discussed.

Energy efficiency

With requirements for greater energy efficiency and lower carbon emissions becoming more and more prominent, Trützschler Nonwovens’ focus is on new and efficient drying technologies.

The Streamliner, introduced during the last ITMA show, is a spiral-shaped drum dryer with highest evaporation capacities. The model is best used in nonwoven lines producing extremely moist and high density nonwovens – it passed the acid test in a production line last year, the company reports.

Another pillar of the dryer and oven programme is the re-designed multi-drum dryer. The new, modular model is optimised in several respects which result in significant reductions in both thermal and electrical energy consumption, according to the manufacturer.

Short staple fibres

Trützschler Man-Made Fibers brings the small but technologically challenging segment of short staple fibres into focus.

One of the most important quality requirements of short fibres with a length of under 3 to 6 mm is absolute length uniformity – Trützschler’s staple fibre technology is said to fulfil this requirement for both standard and high-performance polymers.

Here the technologies presented come to full circle since short staple fibres are often blended with other fibre material for typical wet-laid products, such as nonwovens wallpaper, high-quality tea bags and battery separators.

Technical nonwovens

In the field of technical nonwovens, Trützschler Card Clothing is offering new metallic wires for roller cards application on doffer and condenser. 

Especially for medium and coarse fibres, e.g. for geo-textiles needle-punched webs, new and already field-tested tooth geometries are available, providing enhanced process stability and low maintenance.
