CINTE 2014: ANDRITZ to present full range of technologies for nonwovens and technical textiles
ANDRITZ (Wuxi) Nonwoven, China, part of international technology Group ANDRITZ, will present its state-of-the-art technologies and services for nonwovens and technical textiles at CINTE Techtextil 2014 in Shanghai from September 24 to 26, at hall E07, booth C02.
Assembly facilities, a service center with roll repair workshop, and a technical center with a complete needlepunch pilot line make the ANDRITZ Nonwoven site in Wuxi an all-round partner for the nonwovens industry in Asia. ANDRITZ systems integrate advantages of various technologies and provide reliable solutions, within a global network, in all nonwovens segments, from hygiene to geotextiles, coating substrates, filtration, or automotive applications. In the new workshop, lines and individual machines are preassembled before being delivered to customers. Key components, such as crosslappers, cards, drafters, needlelooms, and hydroentanglement systems are manufactured locally. The ANDRITZ aXcess lines, manufactured and assembled in Wuxi, target the medium-capacity production segment and include the proven technologies from ANDRITZ Asselin-Thibeau, ANDRITZ Perfojet, and ANDRITZ Küsters. Especially for the aXcess line portfolio, ANDRITZ (Wuxi) Nonwoven supplies opening and blending equipment (in cooperation with the French company Laroche, which specializes in this sector).
The technical center comprises an industrial scale aXcess needlepunch pilot line including the A30 needleloom for customer trials and product development with integrated laboratory to test nonwoven fabrics. With their comprehensive know-how, ANDRITZ employees offer genuine spare parts and prompt service support. Another focus lies in workshops and training sessions for Asian customers.
These qualifying courses enable the on-site personnel to be well versed in ANDRITZ technologies and keep the plant at top performance. The new roll service center includes a test stand and grinding equipment for repair, reconditioning, and upgrade of all types of rolls for nonwovens, textile, and paper processes.
