Starting in H2/2022 an ultra-modern, highly flexible NCR-NCA-NCR spunlace line will go into operation at Eruslu Nonwovens Group (ENG), Gaziantep/Turkey. The company has decided to broaden its portfolio in the wipes segment by adding biodegradable products from renewable resources.
The current line from Trützschler Nonwovens, a division of Trützschler GmbH, Mönchengladbach/Germany, consisting of a single NCR random card, AquaJet and a drum dryer had already been laid out for later extension.
Trützschler will upgrade the machines with a second NCR random and a NCA airlay card and fiber preparation and card feeding equipment for the 2 new cards. Also, there will be more hydraulic power to reliably and efficiently hydroentangle multi-layer webs and an extension to the dryer for increased evaporation capacity.
The line is tailor-made to process virgin cotton fibers, comber noils and short fibers at high speeds. End products are lightweight natural wipes or heavy-weight, 3-layer nonwovens for cosmetic pads.
