  • Excellent static electricity dissipation
  • Improved retention of super absorbent polymer
  • Superior life potential due to special weave pattern and improved material properties 


  • Flawless belt handling and reliable performance across full width and material range
  • Clean line operation
  • Excellent web-hold-down and minimized drag at web release
  • V2 seam technology provides fast, stable and mark-free seams

Spunbond and Meltblown Belts

Huycon innovative belt structures allow for efficient web laydown, desired MD/CD strength ratios and effortless sheet release - regardless of machine design, line speed or the polymer source you are utilizing. Huycon is time-proven technology for advanced production of Medical, Hygiene and Industrial grade applications.


  • Smooth surface provides excellent web stability for enhanced speeds and runnability
  • High contact for enhanced drying
  • PTFE fluorocarbon monofilament yarns for clean and dry running performance
  • Available in pin spiral, pin seam, and woven (endless) configurations


  • Excellent contamination resistance
  • Superior dimensional stability
  • Ease of installation - no seam


HuyGlass benefits include a combination of high fiber support and permeability resulting in superior drainage while not sacrificing fiber retention and web consolidation. The Huyglass 0878 is an “X-weave” double layer fabric constructed with PET in the MD and coextruded PA/PET in the CMD. With its high fiber support and excellent resistance to wear, Huyglass 0878 ensures high mat uniformity, and low bleed, and economic life potential.

Saturator Position - Huyglass 7201 is designed specifically for the most demanding applications incorporating rugged construction, resistance to contamination, and excellent life potential. It is constructed of 100% PET and coextruded PET/PTFE.

Wire Cloth

ANDRITZ is now supplying wire cloth products and services. This time-trusted capability is specially engineered for a variety of nonwoven fabrics machine applications including washer belts, cleaner belts, and much more.

Spreader Roll Technology

Advanced bowed roll technology originally engineered at Stowe Woodward, Mount Hope, and Spencer Johnston provides precise control of materials produced in web or sheet form.  VARIBOW is ideal for machines where different weights, grades and types of materials are produced and allows operators to optimize the amount of bow without costly down time.

Roll Cover Technology

Our company pioneered the modern roll cover business back in 1886 and today provides the most high-performance roll covers available, manufactured with rubber, composite, polyurethane and ceramic materials. We have the unique capability to produce a complete range of roll hardnesses from bone hard to 265 P&J in many variations of rubber cover materials. Grooved sheet carrying rolls are also available. Applications include: pad squeeze, coating, calender, embossing and more.

SMART™ Technology

The world's first system for dynamic nip measurements. Displays MD nip width, MD pressure profile, and CD pressure profile, all in real-time. SMART™ Connect feature enables remote monitoring from any smartphone, tablet, or computer.
