The first spunlace line will be capable of processing 100% bleached cotton fibers in a crosslapping configuration with an eXcelle card, a Dynamic crosslapper, a drafter and another eXcelle card, including the ProDyn and Isolayer functions, in order to enhance the web profile uniformity and save raw materials. For web bonding, Andritz will supply its Jetlace Avantage hydroentanglement unit.
The other line is a high-speed spunlace line for processing viscose and polyester fibers. It will have two Andritz TT cards for web forming and a Jetlace Essentiel unit for hydroentanglement. The TT card technology enables drylaid web forming at very high speeds. Andritz has a large number of very successful installations with TT card technology around the globe, with more than 30 machines in operation and an average capacity of 20,000 tons per year. The TT cards for NanFang will be the first to be installed in China.
NanFang has already invested in three spunlace lines. The first was installed in 2002.
