Machinery for pilot lines—the MiniJet spunlacing unit: The MiniJet is a specially designed spunlacing unit serving the need of institutes and companies requiring research and development work or supplying niche markets. Due to proven features of the AquaJet—such as the jet head and the spunlacing drum—all manmade and natural fibers can be processed. The MiniJet allows for water pressures up to 400 bar. This feature, in combination with working width of 500, 1000 and 1300 mm and speeds up to 55 m/min, opens the door to the production of demanding end-products. The modular container design minimizes costs for erection and start-up.
Complete lines—flexible thermo and binder bonding line: Thermobonding nonwovens in a drum oven results in high-quality, bulky materials. A new development by Truetzschler Nonwovens is a line including a drum dryer/oven as well as a foulard, a can dryer and a hot flue unit. In the thermobonding process, the drum oven is used as a thermobonder while all other components are bypassed. When using a liquid agent, the drum dryer is used for drying the nonwoven before entering the hot flue. This line concept is especially suited for the production of light weight webs.
