Andritz has received a repeat order to supply a second, complete neXline spunlace line to Zhejiang Saintyear Textile in China, scheduled for start-up during the third quarter of 2022.

The order comes just nine months after Zhejiang Saintyear placed its first order for a first line for the production of first-class wipes. Production capacity of both lines will be up to 2,800 kg per hour for such lightweight fabrics.

The second line will include opening and blending machinery from Laroche – newly acquired by the Andritz Group – two inline TT cards, a JetlaceEssentiel unit for hydroentanglement and a neXdry through-air dryer.

“Spunlace nonwovens are definitely a must nowadays due to their versatility, and we want to offer our customers the best-quality,” said Zhejiang Saintyear’s CEO Li Yi Ming. “Andritz is the benchmark company in the production of premium roll goods offering the best performance and runnability with its technology. Project execution of the first line is running so smoothly so far that we did not hesitate to renew our trust by ordering a second line.”

Founded in 1981, Zhejiang Saintyear Textile is the core subsidiary of Saintyear Holding Group and one of the world leaders in the fabrics industry.

With an annual output of more than 500 million metres of different fabrics, ranging from cottons, hemp and blending fibres to yarn-dyed and technical textiles, the company has become a major partner for domestic and international clothing brands.
