Oerlikon's nonwoven unit a hit at SINCE 2017 expo
Oerlikon, a leading global technology Group, with a clear strategy to become a global powerhouse in surface solutions, advanced materials, and materials processing, has announced that its new nonwovens business unit received positive feedback from visitors at the SINCE 2017 nonwovens expo, which was held from November 8 to 10, 2017, in Shanghai China.
Visitors to the attractively designed Oerlikon stand were especially interested in the spunbond technology for technical applications.
Rainer Straub, head of the nonwoven business unit that had been newly created by the Oerlikon Manmade Fibres segment in the middle of the year said, “The talks have shown that we are on the right path with our strategy and the development of our technologies. Especially the optimisations of our spunbond process and the resulting increase of nonwoven qualities in terms of strength and elongation impressed the visitors.”
At the expo, greatly in demand were Oerlikon’s meltblown and airlaid technologies as well as the solutions for the manufacturing of wipes and other disposable nonwovens, which were offered in cooperation with Teknoweb Materials s.r.l.. All in all, the Oerlikon group’s nonwoven team are delighted with the positive outcome and can look back in satisfaction on intensive talks of high quality with customers and prospects as well as numerous concrete inquiries.
