OERLIKON Neumag presented a comprehensive portfolio of nonwoven and staple fiber technologies, from spunbond and meltblown to airlaid nonwovens, and the new compact staple fiber line Staple FORCE S 1000 at this year’s CINTE Techtextil in Shanghai.
Application areas of the Oerlikon Neumag technologies showcased at CINTE included filtration, roofing, geotextiles and automotive, as well as hygiene applications.
Staple FORCE S 1000 With its compact construction and low throughputs of up to 15 tons per day, this new compact staple fiber line enables swift product color changes with considerably lower waste. The savings in terms of energy and water resulting from the deployment of a dry-drawing process, lead to a reduction in operating costs and simultaneously protect the environment. The option to install the system on a standard industrial floor also minimizes investment costs.
“Efficient, flexible and compact – these are extremely attractive factors for our customers, opening up diverse, new market potentials for them,” summed up Oerlikon Manmade Fibers sales director Michael Korobczuk. “The Staple FORCE S 1000 is not just for fiber manufacturers focusing on special applications and on ‘on-demand’ deliveries, it also enables nonwoven producers to efficiently integrate fiber manufacturing into their own production operations.”
Technical spunbond technology More than 3 million tons of technical nonwovens were produced last year and the demand is still increasing, especially in emerging countries. Thinner, lighter, efficient materials, as produced with the spunbond technology, now specify the trend. For this rapidly growing market, Oerlikon Neumag offers the complete process from polymer chips up to roll goods for the production of substrate for bitumen roofing membranes, sarking membranes and also geotextiles. The one-step spunbond technology lowers production costs by up to 20% through a combination of effectiveness and productivity.
Meltblown technology as stand-alone or upgrade solution The Oerlikon Neumag meltblown technology enables the cost-efficient production of high-quality melt-blown and SMS (spunbond-meltblown-spunbond) products. Stand-alone mono and bicomeltblown plants produce nonwovens for a variety of filtration, insulation and sorbent applications.
The meltblown technology is applied for a multitude of medical and hygiene products as “Plug & Product” installations in already existing and in new external SXS plants. This solution enables a cost-efficient upgrading of new or existing spunbond plants and offers nonwoven producers access to markets with very high quality demands.Airlaid: more homogeneity with thin nonwovens The forming head is the core of the Oerlikon Neumag airlaid technology and sets the standards for the production of extremely thin airlaid nonwovens. A high uniformity and homogeneous web formation enable the production of high-quality, light airlaid nonwovens with economically attractive production speeds and plant throughput.
