The manufacturer of textile machinery, Autefa Solutions Germany GmbH, Friedberg/Germany, offers fully automatic bale packing systems for staple fiber and tow for the entire range from fiber transport to the baler, as well as bale transport and storage of the pressed, wrapped and strapped bales in bale warehouses.
By the Autefa Uni-Fork system, a fiber production capacity of up to 800 t/day in the viscose industry is already in production realized. The latest polyester installations are based on 5 fiber lines with a total fiber capacity of 1.120 t/day.
In 2018 Autefa Solutions delivered several production lines for Lyocell for the producer of cellulosic fibers Lenzing AG, Lenzing/Austria. Main components are baling systems with automatic packing and strapping including automatic bale handling. The new packing is much faster (up to 130 bales/h) and the fiber bales are sealed and well protected against rain or insect contamination.
