Autefa Solutions has expanded its offerings into equipment for thermal bonding, drying as well as cutting and winding technology by acquiring the rights to Strahm Hi-Tex System AG and the subsequent creation of Autefa Solutions Switzerland.

“With this strategic expansion of our product program we are now able to offer turnkey lines also in the field of thermally bonded nonwovens and for applications in drying technology. We are very pleased to employ a team of specialists for the engineering and sales of such lines in our new location in Switzerland. Especially with regard to the efficient use of energy resources, we will extend the excellent technology of former Strahm, in order to combine innovative concepts with our proven technologies in the interests of our customers,”  says Stefan Schlichter, CEO of Autefa Solutions Group explained.

In addition to web bonding by needling and spunlacing the application of thermal bonding in the range of medium to heavy web weights and in the hygienic sector becomes a significant alternative. As one of the leading suppliers of complete solutions in the production of nonwovens, Autefa Solutions is now in the position to completely own innovative concepts by this important application field.
