Oerlikon Neumag has sold an inline plant with 12 spinning positions for the production of staple fibers for geotextiles to an Indian company. The order includes the complete machine equipment from spinning to baling including engineering and services of supervision for erection and commissioning. Start-up is planned for the end of 2012.
With its lines producing up to 80 tons per day, Oerlikon Neumag provides compact lines which are specialized for the needs of nonwovens producers. Less operational personnel are needed because spinning and drawing are in a single continuous process.
With this line nonwoven producers are able to complete the value chain from the production of staple fibers to needlepunched nonwoven products, according to the company.
“Geotextile is a very promising market for our short spinning inline plants which perfectly suits the needs of nonwoven producers who intend to make their own specialized staple fibers,” says Clement Woon, CEO of Oerlikon Textile.
“For Oerlikon Neumag, this project is a great opportunity in an interesting market with an excellent growth potential. We look forward to realize this project,” says Rainer Straub, head of sales, Oerlikon Neumag.
