Neumünster, Shanghai, 21. October 2016 – Right on time for the ITMA Asia in Shanghai (21 – 25 October 2016), Oerlikon Neumag introduces two new innovations for the production of meltblown nonwovens: a multi-functional forming system as well as the automatic plant control, FAUS (Fully Automatic System). Interested trade vistors can inform themselves in detail about these innovations at stand A16 of the Oerlikon Manmade Fibers segment in hall 2.
New forming system for extended product variety and improved product properties
The new forming system for Oerlikon Neumag meltblown plants excels with its multi-functionality. It is horizontally and vertically movable and has different forming sections, which are segmented several fold and can be individually adjusted. This enables an extremely flexible formation. The relationship between air permeability and nonwoven thickness can be controlled even more precisely, which is a big advantage especially for filter fleece and absorbers.
In addition, compared with the previous forming table, the footprint has been significantly reduced. This not only reduces the required space - the shortened screen belt length also reduces maintenance costs.
Increased productivity and reliability thanks to FAUS
The new FAUS operating unit for the automation of meltblown plants increases productivity and reliability. With the FAUS operating unit, the plant can be automatically started and shutdown. Manual control of temperatures or plant components is not necessary. In the event of a failure, the control reacts quickly, analyses it and reacts accordingly. The innovative formula management system enables product reproductions at the press of a button. Meltblown nonwovens can thus be produced even more economically in the future. Older plants can be retrofitted with the FAUS plant control.
Flexible technology for a wide product range
The Oerlikon Neumag Meltblown technology enables the cost-effective production of high-quality meltblown and SMS (spunbond-meltblown-spunbond) products. Stand-alone mono and bico melt-blown plants produce nonwovens for numerous filtration, insulation and sorption applications. As “Plug & Produce” installations in existing and new third-party SXS plants, Meltblown technology is used for many medical and hygiene products. This solution enables the cost-effective upgrading of new or existing spunbond plants and gives the nonwoven producer access to markets with particularly high quality standards.
