Zhoukou Xuwang has successfully started up two new Andritz neXline spunlace lines at its plant based in Henan province, China.

Combining equipment from the aXcess and eXcelle ranges, both lines are dedicated to the production of spunlace fabrics of 30-120gsm made from viscose and polyester.

The Andritz design will allow Zhoukou Xuwang to serve the premium market for hygiene and technical wipes in China.

The scope of supply for the two lines included aXcess opening and blending systems, a high-performance eXcelle card and crosslapper a robust aXcess CA25 carding machine and a Jetlace Avantage hydroentanglement unit.

This lines will enable Zhoukou Xuwang to manufacture high-quality products while reducing raw materials consumption, further enabled by the installation of an Andritz Asselin-Thibeau crosslapper PRO35-140, generating a uniform profile over the entire web width.

In spite of the difficult circumstances and supply chain disruptions related to the Covid-19 crisis, both spunlace lines were installed smoothly and on time. They quickly went into commercial production with a line speed of up to 100 m/min and high-performance machine direction/cross direction (MD/CD) ratio.

“Thanks to the solutions provided by Andritz, we have built a fully customized spunlace operation,” said Chen Xiangyong, CEO of Zhoukou Xuwang. “This will allow us to provide our customers with top-of-the-range products without compromising on flexibility.”
