ANDRITZ receives order for an elliptical cylinder pre-needler from Amarande, France

Installation and start-up of the machine are scheduled for the second quarter of 2021. The new needlepunch production line with the high-performance ANDRITZ cylinder pre-needler will allow Amarande to offer high-quality products and thus open up new market opportunities.

ANDRITZ offers a complete range of elliptical cylinder pre-needlers: PA.169, PA.2000 and PA.3000 – serving different weights, widths, speeds and punching capacity. ANDRITZ cylinder pre-needlers have been produced since the 1960’s and have a large installed base worldwide. Over the years they have become a must for production of heavy products, special applications and also for demanding applications like automotive. They are a key success factor in enabling the subsequent needling machines to process heavy batts smoothly and control the progressive draft through the consolidation

production of felt and wadding from recycled textile and natural fibers (wool, cotton, hemp, flax, jute,
etc.). The company operates in various markets such as furniture, green spaces, horticultural crops and isulation.
