May 28, 2018 – ANDRITZ will present its nonwovens production solutions and textile finishing technologies June 6-8 at ANEX 2018 in Tokyo, Japan.

ANDRITZ is a market leader in advanced technologies for air-through bonding, needlepunch, spunjet, spunlace, thermobonding, and wetlaid. It offers tailor-made solutions and technologies for nonwovens producers focusing on the hygiene market:

• Nonwovens calenders for applications in thermobonding, embossing, compacting, lamination, or perforation

• Spunjet soft technology to soften the spunbond fabric

• Spunlace lines for diaper back-sheets used for premium quality diapers and leg cuffs

• Air-through bonding lines for best softness in acquisition distribution layers and top-sheets. With the ANDRITZ flat oven, customers benefit from high production capacity and high-performance fabrics from 16 to 80 gsm, produced with bicomponent fibres. The CETI European Institute in Lille, France, recently installed an air-through bonding oven from ANDRITZ. Customers are welcome to visit and conduct trials.

ANDRITZ is also a face mask market leader in skin care with its lightweight spunlace crosslapped lines for nonwovens from 30 to 45 gsm, using such raw materials as cotton, cellulose, and blends thereof. Customers benefit from web uniformity, fabric stability, and low elongation. The skin care mask market is growing rapidly in many parts of the world, especially in Asia, but also more and more in Europe.

Wetlaid technology to reach new markets with added value

The ANDRITZ neXline wetlaid opens the door to niche market manufacturers, offering products made from special fibres such as aramid, carbon, micro-glass, and other high-tech fibres, and is the right choice for end uses in the automotive, aerospace, agricultural, construction, medical/hygiene, and household sectors. Numerous options are available to meet individual needs.

Moreover, the Wetlace™ technology provides unique technology for outstanding performance in the production of flushable wipes. It combines the ANDRITZ webforming solution with ANDRITZ hydroentanglement units, optimizing the wet strength of wipes for use and rapid disintegration when flushed.

Added value with ANDRITZ IIoT solutions

The digital ANDRITZ technologies combined under the Metris technology brand reflect the latest state of the art in the IIoT/Industry 4.0 sector and provide comprehensive support to customers in achieving their production and corporate goals in terms of increasing the efficiency and profitability of plants, optimizing the use of resources, avoiding breaks in production, and achieving highest product quality. The innovative ANDRITZ digitalization solutions also use highly user-friendly features, such as easy control via smartphone, tablet PC, or smartglasses.

The ANDRITZ exhibit will be located at Booth 2430 in the east hall at the Big Sight Exhibition Centre in Tokyo.
