ANDRITZ at Techtextil Russia 2021

The broad ANDRITZ product portfolio covers state-of-the-art nonwovens and textile production technologies such as air-through bonding, needlepunch, spunlace, spunbond, wetlaid/WetlaceTM, converting, textile finishing, airlay, recycling, and natural fiber processing.

Recycling technologies by ANDRITZ
Recently, ANDRITZ acquired Laroche SAS, a leading supplier of fiber processing technologies such as opening, blending, and dosing, airlay web forming, textile waste recycling, and decortication of bast fibers. The product portfolio further complements and enlarges the ANDRITZ Nonwoven product range. One focus of this product range lies on complete recycling lines for post-consumer and industrial textile waste to produce fibers for re-spinning and/or nonwoven end uses. Customer awareness and regulations are pushing apparel brands to recycle their waste in their own products. Recycled fibers can also be used in the nonwovens industry for various applications such as automotive, insulation, mattresses, and furniture felts. To support ANDRITZ customers, a process know-how team is at customers’ disposal to conduct customized trials in our advanced technical center located at the ANDRITZ Laroche facilities.

Needlepunched nonwovens made with ANDRITZ technology – Versatile and sustainable quality
Among the largest end-use markets for nonwoven products are materials for durable uses. Interior linings for cars, materials for construction, geotextiles, synthetic leathers for clothing and furniture, carpeting, filtration, and many other industries rely on the use of nonwovens produced using the needlepunch method.

ANDRITZ needlepunch technology provides customers with a full range of solutions. For needlepunch materials, the ANDRITZ ProWinTM web control system optimizes web distribution, uniformity, profile, and structure. The ProWin system is a smart combination of the ANDRITZ weight profiling control technologies – ProDynTM and ProWidTM – used to gain the most advantages from both technologies in terms of fiber weight profiling on delivery to the crosslapper.
