Jens Erik Thordahl, Campen’s Airlaid specialist and partner, states in connection with the new forming technology: “We are very pleased that we can finally confirm the development and sale of this groundbreaking, new forming head system, which is pending for patent. We have undergone thorough and complex testing of the system here in Denmark, as well as with our customer, and the tests in question were very promising. The new fiber forming technology has proven to reduce energy consumption and requires less space than traditional forming heads. Moreover, it is easy to operate, and it comes with low operating and maintenance cost.”
Campen is currently building new pilot test facilities at the headquarters in Hornslet, Denmark. Besides being able to demonstrate their new airlaid forming technology, Campen also sees many advantages for its customers. Thordahl explains: “Having our own hosted testing facility means that we can become even better to advise our customers on improving their existing production and innovative products as they can see instant results. The new testing facility will also make it possible for customers to take home actual rolls of the new product for further testing. Moreover, we ensure highest confidentiality to our customers when testing new products.”
The first part of the testing facility is already completed and consists of a hammer mill test unit. Later this year, the hammer mill and a winder will be connected to the new airlaid forming head system.
