Germany’s Trutzschler Nonwovens to display new machinery at INDEX 2021

September 25, 2021 - Germany

Trutzschler Nonwovens, Trutzschler Card Clothing, and Voith have announced that they are displaying a wide range of machinery for sustainable nonwovens for wipes, hygiene, or medical textiles at Index 2021, in booth 2327. Index is a world leading nonwovens event organised by Edina and Palexpo. The famous exhibition will be held from October 19-22, 2021.

Plastic-free initiatives worldwide affect everyone: consumers, product developers, nonwoven producers and finally nonwoven machinery suppliers. Trützschler Nonwovens and Voith address the quest for more sustainable and affordable nonwovens in the wipes segment by two proven technologies for manufacturing pulp-based nonwovens: Firstly, WLS (wet-laid/spunlace) lines. More than a handful are in service worldwide and mainly target the flushable wipes market. At Index, Trutzschler will introduce their latest next level/WLS baby and body wipes, a joint development by Voith and Trützschler, the company said in a press release.

The second focus will be on carded/pulp (CP) products. A CP line, including a TWF-NCT card placed between the HydroFormer and the AquaJet, is already running to full capacity at customer sites. Various CP materials, including the company’s next level CP wipes, will be on display at the booth and invite visitors to discuss characteristics, benefits, line concepts, and equipment.

When talking about sustainable nonwovens, solutions for efficiently manufacturing biodegradable nonwovens from virgin cotton fibres, comber noils, and viscose/lyocell fibres must not be missing. Visitors can look forward to directly comparing cotton nonwovens to a broad range of cellulose-based material, Trutzschler said.

Trützschler Card Clothing, the company’s in-house competence centre with respect to card clothing and comprehensive service, will present its latest development, the Z wire for high-speed roller cards. A new geometry will minimise fibre fly and allow for better carding and more stable web forming.
