Karweb to get neXline spunlace line from Andritz

April 14, 2020 - Austria

International technology Group Andritz will provide a complete neXline spunlace line to Karweb Nonwovens for its plant located in Gaziantep, Turkey. The line is scheduled for installation and start-up at the beginning of 2021. The new neXline spunlace eXcelle line will be used to produce viscose and polyester wipes as well as biodegradable wipes.

Andritz will provide a full line with state-of-the-art equipment – from web forming to drying. The scope of supply includes the complete opening and blending machinery, two inline high-speed TT cards, a proven JetlaceEssentiel unit (including a water filtration unit) for hydroentanglement, a neXdry through-air dryer, and a neXecodry S1 system for energy saving.

The two companies have a strong relationship. In 2017, Andritz had supplied a spunlace line to Karweb for production of roll-goods made from several types of fibres, such as polyester, viscose, Tencel, cotton and polyamide.

Karweb Nonwovens, founded in 2013, is a division of Kara Holding and the first and only Turkish manufacturer of airlaid products for health care, hygiene and special disposable materials. The company serves customers worldwide.
