Albis To Build Second Spunbond Line

January 23, 2007

Building on the success of its first Neumag Sauer line, Italian nonwovens producer Albis SpA has unveiled plans to expand its spunbond capacities and has ordered a second Neumag spunbond plant. The line features a three-beam SMS (spunbond/meltblown/spunbond) configuration and bicomponent capability.

According to Albis, with a production width of seven meters, the new line will represent the world’s widest spunbond line. The company’s first installation, which came onstream in 2005, comprises two beams, a meltblown unit, bicomponent capability and a production width of five meters.
