International technology group Andritz will be presenting its innovative nonwovens production and textile solutions at ANEX in Taipei, Taiwan, from May 22-24 at hall 1, booth J417.

The broad Andritz nonwoven & textile product portfolio covers state-of-the-art nonwovens and textile production technologies, such as air-through bonding, airlay, airlaid/airlace, needlepunch, spunlace, spunbond, wetlaid/wetlace, converting, textile finishing, recycling, and natural fibre processing. For Anex, a special emphasis will be placed on the latest technologies for hygiene, wipes, and durable applications.

Andritz provides complete lines and individual machines to produce hygiene nonwovens and applications, such as airlaid, air-through bonding, spunlace lines, nonwovens calendars, Spunjet equipment, and complete converting lines for baby, adult, and fem care products.

For instance, one highlight at Anex will be the concept for a bio-based diaper. In close cooperation with key players in the hygiene industry, Andritz has developed a concept for an environmentally sustainable diaper made of 90 per cent bio-based materials, perfectly demonstrating that personal care and environmental protection can go hand in hand. At the same time, this concept diaper can show further development opportunities in the production of increasingly environmentally friendly, sustainable, bio-compostable materials made of spunlace nonwovens.

Within the hygiene converting area, Andritz designs, manufactures, and supplies turnkey converting machines to produce a comprehensive range of absorbent hygiene products for baby, adult, and fem care. The latest development is a comprehensive process to recycle SAP, fluff pulp and other components of industrial waste absorbent hygiene products (AHP), while maintaining high material quality. This recycling process is the result of a joint effort within Andritz nonwoven & textile and contributes to the development of more sustainable practices for the disposal and recycling of industrial waste AHP. The newly developed line separates SAP, fluff pulp and other components of AHP and can recycle SAP and fluff pulp in a closed loop to produce new AHP. High quality of the recycled material is ensured. This contributes to the responsible management of industrial waste AHP, the company said in a press release.

Moreover, Andritz will present its technology development in the spunlaid sector: the patented nonwovens process called Spunjet. It is the in-line hydroentanglement of continuous filaments, creating a new generation of spunlaid nonwovens with unrivalled bulkiness and softness compared to standard spunbond fabrics. Spunjet offers customers the best properties ever achieved in existing and new nonwovens applications.

For many years now, Andritz has offered different nonwoven processes for biodegradable wipes, like Airlace, spunlace, Wetlace and Wetlace CP, with one goal in mind: reduction and elimination of plastic components, while maintaining the high quality of the desired product properties. The latest development in this field is the Andritz neXline wetlace aXcess line to produce flushable and biodegradable wipes. This is a fully engineered production line medium capacities and especially designed for the Asian market. The compact line is an ideal entrance to the growing wetlaid market.
