Andritz installs new spunlace line at Novita
International technology Group Andritz has installed a new neXline eXcelle spunlace line at Novita, based in Zielona Gora, Poland. The line is meant to produce spunlace fabrics from 30 to 100 gsm and even down to 25 gsm for ultralight products. Novita now enters the hygiene and medical markets with a total installed capacity of nearly 3,000 kg/h.
Andritz has supplied its high-performance web forming system with two TT cards, its well-known hydroentanglement unit JetlaceEssentiel including the neXecodry energy saving system, water filtration and retreatment systems, and one neXdry double-drum through-air dryer.
The complete spunlace line was commissioned very quickly, and the line reached 250 m/min after only a few weeks. Training sessions with Andritz experts then enabled the Novita technicians to operate the line at a stable pace of 300 m/min.
For Novita, this is the first spunlace line with in-line configuration, allowing the company to access new markets. Radoslaw Muziol, CEO of Novita, said: “With the new Andritz spunlace line, Novita is able to offer first-class spunlace roll goods with high-quality fabric characteristics and a customised product perfectly suited to hygiene end-uses.”
Andritz offers high-performance spunlace lines combining high production capacity at the highest speed available on the market with top web quality in terms of appearance and MD:CD ratio. With Andritz solutions, there are no compromises between speed and quality of nonwoven fabric characteristics.
