American textile manufacturer WPT Nonwovens has invested in a new thermobonding line for filter media. Trützschler Nonwovens teamed up with Schott & Meissner to deliver a state-of-the-art, high-capacity line including the T-BLEND fibre preparation system, two TWF-NC roller cards, and Schott & Meissner’s high-speed ‘Speedliner’ belt oven.

To enable further growth, WPT Nonwovens has decided to invest in a new through-air bonding line. Home and Vehicle Air Conditioning (HVAC) systems often rely on thermo- or through-air bonded nonwovens for air filtering. The Trützschler machinery has been selected to ensure reliable fibre preparation and web forming processes for various special, technically demanding filtration media, according to a joint press release by Trützschler Nonwovens and WPT Nonwovens.

WPT Nonwovens is a specialist not only for filtration media but also for nonwovens used in the medical, hygiene, and industrial sectors. The US-based company started its business in 2008 and quickly became a trusted supplier of spunbonded, needle-punched, wet-laid, and carded nonwovens.

The start-up of the through-air bonding line is planned for the third quarter of 2023. Trützschler Nonwovens is proud to support WPT Nonwovens in supplying technical nonwovens to a demanding market.
