Oerlikon Neumag’s Nonwovens Technology for a strongly growing market
More than 3 million tons of technical nonwovens were produced last year. An increasing demand for these materials, in particular from emerging nations, results in great chances for the manufacturers. “Thinner, lighter, more efficient materials are demanded by the market. For this reason, the trend is obviously setting towards nonwovens”, explains Dr Ingo Mählmann, product manager for nonwovens at Oerlikon Neumag, with regard to the growing chances on the building sector. Oerlikon Neumag offers an efficient one-step spunbond process which considerably lowers the manufacturing costs. The company supplies the complete process, from spinning to the rolled goods, for bitumen roofing, roofing underlayment and geotextiles.
Oerlikon Neumag’s Meltblown Technology as a Plug & Produce solution
Oerlikon Neumag is expanding their nonwovens product line and, apart from their stand-alone plants, they are now also offering their meltblown technology to be subsequently integrated into existing or new, outside vendor SXS plants. “This enables a cost-efficient upgrading of new or existing spunbond plants and offers nonwoven producers access to markets with high quality demands”, explains Ed McNally, Sales Director Nonwovens at Oerlikon Neumag, with regard to the customer benefits. Due to the numerous processible polymers and producible fiber finenesses, a wide product spectrum can be covered with the Oerlikon Meltblown Technology.
Airlaid: more homogeneity with thin webs
With the newly developed forming head, Oerlikon Neumag is setting new standards in the production of extremely thin airlaid webs. A high uniformity and homogeneous web formation today enables the production of high-quality, light airlaid webs with economically attractive production speeds and plant throughputs. With the new forming head, not only very light airlaid materials, but also combination webs, fully utilizing the plant capacity and simultaneously saving raw materials, can be produced.
