Neumünster, 27 April 2015 – The requirement for technical nonwovens accounts for approx. 60% of the entire nonwoven market worldwide. About half of these nonwovens are now produced in Asia. Oerlikon Neumag’s focus at this year’s ANEX and SINCE, from 13 to 15 May in Shanghai, is therefore on nonwoven and meltblown plants for technical applications. All visitors are invited to visit our booth S60 in hall 1, to gather information on the technologies for the production of high-quality nonwovens.
Focussing on technical nonwoven applications
Spunbond technology for an economical, energy-efficient production
Weight and production costs play an increasingly important role in the production of technical nonwovens. Thinner, lighter, more efficient materials are demanded by the market. Oerlikon Neumag’s one-step spunbond process meets these demands and convinces with a combination of effectivity and productivity. Production costs can be reduced by up to 20%. However, not only the throughput, energy efficiency and economy of Oerlikon Neumag’s plants are convincing, the company also offers their customers the complete process from spinning to roll goods for geotextiles, bitumen and underlayments, from a single source.
Meltblown technology for even higher qualities
The optimized meltblown technology defines new demands in the production of nonwovens for filtration. Whether as a stand-alone mono and bicomponent plant, or as “Plug & Produce” installations (retrofits) in already existing plants, the Oerlikon Neumag meltblown process today, enables the cost-efficient production of meltblown nonwovens with quality requirements of tomorrow.
Airlaid technology for extremely thin nonwovens
Nowadays there is a demand for the production of lightweight, airlaid nonwovens with economically attractive production speeds and plant throughputs. On this sector, the forming head of the Oerlikon Neumag airlaid technology sets standards with a high uniformity and homogenous fiber laydown, also with extremely thin nonwovens.
