A unique (patent pending) nonwovens line from Tufropes, based on pentamerous (5-part) technology, will be installed by Truetzschler Nonwovens and Voith. The new production line will be capable of producing 5 different eco-friendly, hydroentangled products.
The new installation relies heavily on Truetzschler/Voith core components for wetlaying, carding and hydroentangling. Proprietary refinements will allow Tufropes Pvt. Ltd., Mumbai/India, to produce any possible hydroentangled nonwovens material, including biodegradable, natural fiber, eco-friendly high-performance nonwovens. Globally this would be a first industrial-scale pentamerous technology-based nonwovens project. The line is expected to be commissioned in 2022.
Carded/pulp (CP) technology from Truetzschler Nonwovens, a division of Truetzschler GmbH, Mönchengladbach/Germany, and Voith Paper GmbH, Heidenheim/Germany, combines a cost-effective, wet-laid pulp layer and a carded web layer from cellulosic fibers. It has very consistent distribution of stock suspension for highly flat profiles. The NCT high-speed card delivers a carded web into the manufacturing process. It offers additional flexibility in web forming and end products.
Tufropes is a leader in providing high quality and technologically advanced rope and netting solutions. These are used in a wide array of industries such as aquaculture, marine, safety, sports, shipping and defense. The company’s new production will deliver fully functional, affordable and 100% bio-degradable nonwovens.
