The sales teams of Autefa Solutions combines experts of the former companies Fehrer, F.O.R, Autefa and Strahm.
Autefa Solutions’ needlepunch lines meet customer requirements for quality web formation, bonding, active weight regulation and minimal maintenance requirements.
Autefa Solutions delivers turnkey nonwoven lines including opening and blending, chute feed, carding, crosslapping, needlepunching, drafting, and winding.
Marco Fano, CEO of Autefa Solutions, explains, “Customers expect more technological support, a perfect spare part service and a solution for the cumbersome and expensive needle exchange. The performance of the needle loom increases once the needleloom will be not considered as a stand-alone machine.”
The combination of the crosslapper and a needle machine, monitored by a “closed loop control” leads to higher fabric quality. In many staple fiber and nonwoven lines, the crosslapper is important for determining quality. Using the crosslapper from the ‘Topliner’ series, combined with the profiling system and the additional WebMAX equipment, prevents the increased weight of the fabric in the edge areas, called the ‘smile effect.’ This results in an excellent uniformity in the fabric and, a considerable savings of materials.
With the Automatic Needle Exchanger 2.0, Autefa Solutions offers a unique service machine for every needleloom. The exchanger enables a fully automatic rotation and exchange without manual intervention. The focus of the new card Web Master FUTURA is to improve maintenance. Autefa Solutions therefore completely reworked the Easy Opening System. The system is placed on high precision linear bearings, so after closing all rollers are exactly in the same position as before. The different parts of the card, means feeding group, first main cylinder, transfer group and doffers, are each placed on a separate carriage. The carriages are connected to each other by one screw on each side forming a “train” allowing easy and full access for cleaning and maintenance.
