Andritz has received an order from Zhejiang Kingsafe Hygiene Materials, of Hezhou, China, for a complete new neXline spunlace nonwovens line.

The line is scheduled for installation and start-up during the second quarter of 2022.

This high-capacity spunlace eXcelle line will process either 100% biodegradable fibres or blends of polyester and viscose. It is dedicated to the production of hygiene and medical fabrics. The final products will have fabric weights ranging from 30 to 100 gsm, and the annual production capacity will be up to 18,000 tons.

Andritz will deliver the complete line, from web forming to drying, aintegrating two high-speed TT cards, the well-known JetlaceEssentiel hydroentanglement unit and the neXdry through-air dryer equipped with a neXecodry S1 system for energy savings. This combination is becoming the market benchmark for the production of lightweight spunlace fabrics dedicated to the hygiene market, Andritz says.

“We are proud to operate Andritz nonwoven lines, which are very reliable and efficient,” said Kingsafe’s president Huarong Yan. “The company helps us a lot in producing top-of-the-range, nonwoven roll goods, enabling us to be recognised as a key player among nonwovens producers worldwide.”

Zhejiang Kingsafe founded in 1987, is one of the largest companies in China producing spunlace and spunbond nonwoven roll goods, with several spunlace lines already in operation. The final products are exported all over the world and used in many fields, such as the medical sector, health care, high-tech agriculture, and high-quality consumer and household products.

The new line is now the ninth spunlace line supplied by Andritz and the third with high-speed TT cards.
