Oerlikon Nonwoven will be showcasing market- and customer-oriented solutions for hygiene, medical, filtration, and other technical applications at the nonwovens trade fair, Index, in Geneva, Switzerland, from March 31-April 3, 2020. Visitors to the show can check the Neumünster-based systems constructor’s extensive product and process know-how.
For the manufacture of hygiene nonwovens, Oerlikon Nonwoven offers its new QSR (Quality Sized Right) systems. Here, the benefits of the Chinese machine construction partner’s nonwoven formation are integrated into the complete solution. The advantage for nonwovens producers: highly competitive solutions at attractive prices with comparably low investment.
New, unique and highly sophisticated filter media can be easily and efficiently manufactured thanks to Oerlikon Nonwoven’s optimised meltblown technology. Whether as a stand-alone system with one or several positions, as ‘plug & produce’ installations for already existing systems or in conjunction with other technologies: the Oerlikon Nonwoven meltblown process already enables the cost-efficient manufacture of meltblown nonwovens with the quality requirements of tomorrow. Ever more producers are choosing the meanwhile extensively tried-and-tested and consistently further-developed Oerlikon Nonwoven meltblown solutions, the company said in a press release.
Pulp or cellulose fibres as raw material for manufacturing nonwovens are currently virtually unrivalled with regards to sustainability and environmental compatibility. The Oerlikon Nonwoven airlaid process is the ideal solution for processing this raw material into high-end products for a wide range of applications. Today, there is huge demand for manufacturing solutions for high-quality, lightweight airlaid nonwovens with economically attractive production speeds and system throughputs. In this area, the patented Oerlikon Nonwoven formation process, which also permits the homogeneous mixing of the most diverse raw materials, while simultaneously guaranteeing superb evenness and homogeneous fibre laying, is setting standards even for nonwovens with low running meter weights. And the benefits of this technology are also increasingly gaining significance in sustainable recycling applications.
Also to be showcased at the trade fair stand is the P&G patented Phantom technology from Teknoweb Materials, Oerlikon Nonwoven’s strategic partner for hygiene products and wipes. The Phantom technology is released to Teknoweb Materials by P&G in worldwide exclusive license. The Phantom technology is the superior dry laid alternative technology for manufacturing wet wipes from pulp and polymer fibres, for example. Compared to conventional, known processes, this technology offers superior performances with cost advantage in much more eco-friendly products. Dispensing with hydro-entanglement renders subsequent drying of the material redundant. Targeted process management allows the optimal setting of the relevant product parameters such as softness, tenacity, dirt absorption, and liquid absorption.
