Truetzschler Nonwovens will present production lines for green nonwovens at the Techtextil trade fair for technical textiles and nonwovens, which takes place from 14-17 May in Frankfurt.

“Since decades machine supplier answered requirements on enhanced product quality, better line efficiency and higher productivity with new concepts and innovative processes. Now we see a new dimension rising,” the company reports.

“As a supplier of complete production lines Truetzschler Nonwovens offers machinery, service and know-how out of one hand – everything from implementing product ideas to enabling new businesses.”

At the show, the focus is on solutions for processing eco-friendly materials. Cotton fibres – both virgin cotton and comber noils – make an excellent raw material for top-quality wipes. Truetzschler’s random and airlay cards are especially configured to cope with variable fibre lengths and a high short fibre content. The NCR and NCA cards reliably form webs for the kind of soft cotton wipes sought after in premium markets worldwide, the manufacturer explains.

Another focus point is fully biodegradable wet-laid and spunlaced (WLS) wipes. Voith and Truetzschler go one step beyond flushable wipes and show pulp and lyocell-based materials with sufficient strength to compete with conventional wipes from polyester/viscose blends. Machinery from both companies – such as Voith’s HydroFormer and Truetzschler’s AquaJet – add up to a versatile wet-laying and spunlacing line for future-fit end products.
