In addition to its role as a technology driver for ever new requirements and opportunities that have a decisive impact on product diversity, ANDRITZ nonwoven calenders are characterized by a wide range of different models that meet almost every need.

Engineered success at its best

In general, ANDRITZ nonwoven calenders are used for a variety of possible end products. In addition to the hygiene sector mentioned above, e.g. for diapers, products used in medical applications such as masks or protective suits, and much more, there are products in the areas of roofing, geotextiles, filtration, or technical felts that receive their unique product properties with the help of ANDRITZ nonwoven calenders.

But what really makes ANDRITZ calenders so unique is their perfect blend of capability, reproducibililty, reliability, and efficiency. For our customers, minimizing downtime and repair intervals as well as user-friendliness are an absolute must. ANDRITZ is a good choice wherever calenders are to be used in nonwovens production, whether in thermobonding or in final processing such as embossing, compacting, or laminating.
