Truetzschler Nonwovens is to deliver the equipment to Eruslu Nonwovens Group (ENG) to enlarge an existing spunlacing line into a flexible, state-of-the-art production line for various light to heavy weight sustainable nonwovens.

When ENG invested in a Truetzschler spunlacing line in 2015, it became clear that the company was heading for growth. The line, consisting of a single NCR random card, AquaJet and a drum dryer had already been laid out for later extension. All components were either fully equipped or designed to deliver higher performances.

Last year Eruslu decided to broaden its portfolio in the wipes segment by adding biodegradable products from renewable resources. The group took full advantage of the configuration of the 2015 small capacity line and decided to expand with:

-A second NCR random and an NCA airlay card.

-Fibre preparation and card feeding equipment for the two new cards.

-More hydraulic power to reliably and efficiently hydroentangle multi-layer webs.

-An extension to the dryer for increased evaporation capacity.

After starting up in the second half of 2022, Eruslu will be operating an ultra-modern, highly flexible NCR-NCA-NCR spunlace line – the first of its kind in Turkey.

The line is tailor-made to process virgin cotton fibres, comber noils and short fibres at high speeds. End products will be top-quality, lightweight natural wipes or heavy-weight, three-layer nonwovens for cosmetic pads.

Eruslu Nonwovens Group, established in 1972, is located in Gaziantep, Turkey. The company provides disposable products for the home cleaning and health sectors with products exported to more than 100 countries worldwide.
