The spunlace sector is still competitive for end product manufacturers.
The manufacturer of textile machinery, Autefa Solutions Germany GmbH, Friedberg/Germany, offers complete lines for the production of direct and crosslapped spunlace products. The web forming process, consisting of the injection card and crosslapper topliner series is the key for high and consistent nonwoven fabric quality. The main challenge in high-speed webforming lines for spunlace is to keep fibers at any time and process stage under control. Autefa solutions injection card enables (dry-laid) web forming at high production. The injection card uses a combination of mechanical and aerodynamic principle for a gentle fiber treatment. It delivers a quality web at the highest productions with a better MD/CD. With the Topliner CL4006 SL Autefa Solutions offers a crosslapper with special features for the spunlace application. Highest layering speeds and precise weight distribution are possible thanks to the integrated drafting unit, compensation belt, antistatic equipment and new designed transport aprons. With the hydroentanglement machine V-Jet Futura Autefa Solutions recently closed the missing link within the companies’ product portfolio between the Autefa web forming technology and the drying technology. The V-Jet Futura and the Square Drum Dryer SQ-V, stand for an advanced technology. This new technology offers a significant reduction of energy consumption compared to any state-of- the-art line. Autefa Solutions Square Drum Dryer SQ-V combines the advantage of a horizontal belt dryer and the better drying efficiency with the space advantage of a drum dryer, resulting in increased drying length with small footprint. The company offers 4 nonwovens productions lines with several bonding technologies and a special line for carbon fiber processing. During Cinte Techtextil China on September 2-4, 2020 in Shanghai/China Autefa Solutions presents future-proof solutions for improving quality and productivity.
