International technology group Andritz has received an order from Welspun Advanced Materials, India, to deliver a complete neXline spunlace line for the production of nonwoven roll goods and wipes for their new plant in Hyderabad, Telangana. The line has a capacity of up to three tons per hour. Start-up of the line is scheduled for Q4FY21.

The Andritz high-capacity spunlace line will process various types of synthetic or natural fibres, such as polyester, viscose and cotton. The final products will have fabric weights ranging from 25 to 120gsm, thus covering many applications. This neXline spunlace line also offers the option to integrate a third component from a selection of smart layers, enabling Welspun to also manufacture products for the health care and hygiene sectors, the two companies said in a joint press release.

“We believe that the global demand for disposable products will show solid growth as economies and consumers become more hygiene and environment conscious. Our choice of Andritz as our partner matches our shared view, which has a bias towards sustainable technologies. Andritz’s neXline spunlace can provide savings on energy and water with the technology delivered. Welspun focuses on sustainability, and our site itself is being developed in compliance with the Indian Green Building Certification,” Cherian Thomas, CEO of Welspun Advanced Textiles, said.
