The scope of supply includes the delivery of an Andritz neXline spunlace eXcelle line with two TT cards, which is now the new standard in China for high-capacity production of wipes. The new nonwovens line will have an annual capacity of 20,000 tons for the production of spunlace fabrics from 30-80 gsm. A Jetlace Essentiel hydroentanglement unit and a neXdry through-air dryer are also part of the order.
Hangzhou Pengtu began operations in 1998 and has developed very quickly in the field of artificial leather coatings. The company is now looking to enter the nonwovens industry with the spunlace process, hoping to become one of the leading Chinese spunlace producers. It plans ultimately invest in six spunlace lines within the next three years, with Andritz as a preferred partner to support the company’s growth.
