Fives along with its partners Dell'Orco&Villani and Technoplants has unveiled a pilot line in Pistoia (Italy) for nonwoven producers to test fibres for ADL applications -hygiene, personal care, medical, etc. The pilot line is equipped with opening and blending systems, a state-of the-art carding machine DMS Elowave and a thermobonding oven.
The opening and blending systems are from Dell'Orco&Villani, the carding machine DMS Elowave is from Fives DMS and the thermobonding oven is from Technoplants.
The DMS Elowave card features a completely new design, improved roll run-out to 0,03mm for enhanced homogeneity and high mechanical stability during operations. Its main advantages include high productivity, improved MD/CD ratio, and drastic reduction of fibre accumulation due to controlled aeraulic flow.
The nonwovens is a dynamic and diverse industry driven by innovations. Over the last five years, the demand for nonwoven materials has grown from seven to 13 per cent depending on applications, according to the European Disposables and Nonwovens Association (EDANA). (SV)
