Neumag Opens Carding Center In Austria

July 31, 2006

At the end of July, the new Neumag Carding Center was officially opened at Neumag Austria (formerly Fehrer) in Linz, Austria. The center contains a carded nonwovens production line extending from bale opening to end product winding and offers a complete process with FOR fiber preparation and carding, Autefa crosslapping and Fehrer needlepunching technologies. The new carding center will help customers and interested parties develop new products and ideas while allowing Neumag to internally develop components, machines and fully integrated processes using the various technologies of the Neumag Nonwoven Portfolio.

The carding line’s great flexibility allows the production of standard nonwoven materials as well as the development of new material concepts for various applications. With a working width of 3.5 meters, the pilot line offers performance data at commercial production conditions allowing an easy transfer of development results on commercial assets.

Up until 2007 the Carding Center will also be equipped with an aerodynamic carding line and a spunlace line. In addition, the needlepunching facilities will be equipped with various structuring needlelooms constituting the very latest state-of-the-art technologies. The new center in Linz, supplements the Neumag spunbond and airlaid facilities in Neumünster, Germany and Horsens, Denmark and represents the third and final element in the range of main nonwoven production processes that Neumag supplies.
