Autefa Solutions, a full line supplier for carded- crosslapped needlepunch lines and thermobonding lines, will offer future-proof solutions for improving quality and productivity at the upcoming Techtextil trade fair that take place from 14-17 May in Frankfurt.

During Techtextil, the company will present its portfolio. Autefa Solutions lines cover the needs of the highly-competitive nonwovens market. “An improved and even surface quality has been set as key target by the customers,” the company reports. “Therefore, Autefa Solutions offers the service of a customised needle board pattern.”

The i-Point needling simulation tool is designed to increase the capacity and the quality of needlepunched fabrics. The development of new needle patterns and the evaluation of surface quality is said to be more effective and economic with the i- Point software technology. “It creates a layout of stripper and bed plate including the elliptic needling (Variliptic),” the manufacturer explains.

“This customised design of needle pattern, which takes also draft and shrinkage into consideration, reduces the process optimisation time on customer site. Autefa Solutions needlepunch lines produce an even and homogenous fabric with outstanding technical performance in terms of tensile strength and evenness (MD/CD ratio).”
