Andritz introduces 3D patterning

May 7, 2012

Machinery specialist Andritz has set a new milestone in patterning technology with its innovative sleeve called neXimaging, which provides an exceptionally efficient 3D patterning solution for nonwovens producers, but also for converters. This patterning approach allows any kind of patterning and/or aperturing at high speeds. The sleeve has been designed to reproduce logos and artwork in perfect three-dimensional designs with exceptional quality of details. In the past, several solutions for patterning and aperturing nonwovens were offered with some limitations. Thanks to neXimaging, the customer now has an unlimited solution regarding the number of patterns available or the possible pattern shape and texture or the compatibility, even with high polyester content or polypropylene blends. The neXimaging solution is the perfect tool for production of innovative nonwovens structures for wipes, medical or technical end-uses and is ideal for combining new functions.

With 25 years of experience in design of hydroentanglement systems dedicated to nonwovens lines, Andritz Perfojet is recognized as a leading company in spunlace technology. Throughout these years, ANDRITZ has continued to innovate in order to provide the nonwovens market with the best technologies available in terms of productivity and also energy efficiency.
