For the textile recycling sector, Andritz offers complete lines and individual components for textile fibre preparation, mechanical and chemical recycling, and combined processes. Andritz’s nonwoven production solutions and products are classified as sustainable if they support customers in achieving their sustainability goals, the company said in a media release.
The presentation of a complete PA.3000 elliptical cylinder pre-needler at Andritz’s booth is one of the highlights at this year’s ITMA in Milan. The PA.3000 is the ideal solution for processing fibre mats, featuring new capabilities to ‘freeze’ the evenness of the fabric as it operates with no internal draft and with more than 70 per cent extra surface-impact needling capacity than the existing technology.
Andritz will also present its ProWin technology for profile web weight correction, which is used to optimise fabric evenness and provide a faster return on investment in the needlepunch market segment. Another major topic at ITMA will be digitalisation. Andritz offers a broad and constantly growing range of innovative products and services in the industrial digitalisation sector under the brand name Metris.
At ITMA, Andritz will also present its textile-recycling processes, including textile fibre preparation, mechanical and chemical recycling, and combined processes.
One highlight is the ADuro F fine grinder, which will be showcased at the Andritz booth. The ADuro F is used for efficient fine grinding of pre-shredded textile input material down to a very accurate granulate size, while keeping dust to an absolute minimum. Visitors to the company’s booth will also get to witness an augmented reality demonstration.
Another key topic at ITMA will be Andritz’s chemical/circular textile recycling technologies, where fibre preparation plays an essential role. The company is a key player in the chemical recycling of textile waste segment because the core process steps involved can use the same equipment as in existing pulp and paper technology, in which Andritz specialises.
Andritz has teamed up with Pellenc ST and Nouvelles Fibres Textiles in an ambitious partnership aiming to drive the shift towards an industrial-scale circular economy for textiles. This partnership is the result of a long-standing collaboration. The three companies are now joining forces to set up the very first industrial line in France to combine automated sorting and recycling technology. At ITMA, the companies will present the latest developments.
Andritz’s team will be welcoming visitors in hall 10, booth A105 and hall 09, booth C205 at Fiera Milano Rho in Milan, Italy.
