The producer of meltblown nonwovens, Innovatec, is investing in a Weko fluid application system for the functionalization of meltblown nonwovens. After several series of tests in the in-house Weko-TechnologyCenter as well as further tests in the running production conditions with a loaner, the system was commissioned. The fluid application system from Weitmann & Konrad GmbH & Co. KG (Weko), Leinfelden-Echterdingen/Germany, is an economical as well as ecological system where the amount of additives and their emissions are reduced.
Weko offers non-contact minimum application systems for one or both sides of the application of a wide variety of fluids, with which nonwovens as well as classic and technical textiles are equipped. The precise and reproducible order quantities die, guaranteed high process reliability, offers a highly competitive advantage. The use of the necessary fluids can sometimes be reduced by up to 60% with the same functional quality and optimal reproducibility.
Innovatec Microfibre Technology GmbH & Co. KG, Troisdorf/Germany, is one of the most modern and largest manufacturers in meltblown production, with around 110 employees. In addition to a large machine park for the production of meltblown nonwovens, the company also has the most modern spunbond systems at its disposal, which optimally complement the product portfolio.
