Truetzschler to launch new line concepts at INDEX expo
Leading textile machinery company from Germany, Truetzschler Nonwovens and Truetzschler card clothing, is set to launch new line concepts and wires for efficiently making sustainable nonwovens for wipes or hygiene textiles at INDEX 2020 expo, in booth 2327. The leading nonwovens event will be held from March 31-April 3, 2020, at Geneva, Switzerland.
Consumers love textiles made from cotton fibres. They highly appreciate the soft and natural touch not only in garments but also in other products coming in contact with the skin. Fibre fineness, most fibres range between 3-5.5 Mic or 1.0-2.8 dtex – strength and absorbent capacity make cotton fibres an ideal material for single-use dry and wet wipes. There are just two reasons for the limited usage of cotton fibres in single-use nonwovens. Firstly, cotton is higher priced than less expensive viscose/polyester blends most times. And secondly, cotton fibres are natural products whose qualities vary both regionally and from year to year.
At INDEX, Truetzschler Nonwovens will address these challenges by introducing new line concepts for efficiently making cotton nonwovens for wipes or hygiene textiles. We discuss proven technologies which reliably turn even comber noils, short or unbleached cotton fibres into high-value products, according to a press release by the company.
Another focus is on Truetzschler and Voith’s WLS (Wet-laying/Spunlacing) technology. The company will discuss opportunities of WLS-lines and WLS in combination with other technologies for providing consumers with eco-friendly, sustainable and affordable single-use nonwoven products.
Truetzschler card clothing, the company’s in-house competence centre with respect to clothings and comprehensive service, will present its latest development, the SUPERTIP wire generation, which brings card clothings to a new level of quality and profitability.
