Neumünster, February 09, 2012 - Oerlikon Neumag has signed a contract for an Inline plant with 12 spinning positions for the production of staple fibers for geotextiles. The order comprises the complete machine equipment from spinning to baling including engineering and services of supervision for erection and commissioning. Start-up will be at the end of 2012.
With its Inline plants producing up to 80 tons per day, Oerlikon Neumag provides compact lines which are specialised for the needs of nonwoven producers. Less operational personnel are needed because spinning and drawing are in a single continuous process. With this plant nonwoven producers are able to complete the value chain from the production of staple fibers to needle punched nonwoven products.
Besides the engineering know- how the worldwide service network from Oerlikon Neumag with a centre in Baroda, India, are very beneficial for staple fibers producers to get the maximum uptime from the equipment.
“Geotextile is a very promising market for our short spinning Inline plants which perfectly suits the needs of nonwoven producers who intend to make their own specialized staple fibers”, says Clement Woon, CEO of Oerlikon Textile. “For Oerlikon Neumag, this project is a great opportunity in an interesting market with an excellent growth potential. We look forward to realize this project”, says Rainer Straub, Head of Sales Oerlikon Neumag.
