The company WPT Nonwovens is investing in a new thermobonding line for filter media. Trützschler Nonwovens teamed up with Schott & Meissner Maschinen- und Anlagenbau GmbH, Blaufelden/Germany, to deliver a state-of-the-art, high-capacity line including the T-Blend fiber preparation system, 2 TWF-NC roller cards and Schott & Meissner’s high-speed “Speedliner” belt oven.
Air conditioning systems are not only an integral part of many buildings all over the world. They are vital components in cars, trucks, planes and other. Home and Vehicle Air Conditioning (HVAC) systems often rely on thermo- or through-air bonded nonwovens for air filtering.
WPT Nonwovens Corp., Beaver Dam, KY/USA, is a specialist not only for filtration media but also for nonwovens used in the medical, hygiene and industrial sectors. It is a supplier of spunbonded, needle-punched, wet-laid and carded nonwovens.
To enable further growth, WPT Nonwovens now decided to invest in a new through-air bonding line. The machinery from Trützschler Nonwovens & Man-Made Fibers GmbH, Egelsbach/Germany, has been selected to ensure reliable fiber preparation and web forming processes for various special, technically demanding filtration media. The proximity and good relationship to subsidiary Trützschler USA, Charlotte, NC/USA finally convinced WPT Nonwovens to shake hands with Trützschler Nonwovens.
The start-up of the through-air bonding line is planned for the Q3/2023.
