ANDRITZ to supply a high-speed spunlace line to Welspun, India

The ANDRITZ high-capacity spunlace line will process various types of synthetic or natural fibers, such as polyester, viscose and cotton. The final products will have fabric weights ranging from 25 to 120 gsm, thus covering many applications. This neXline spunlace line also offers the option to integrate a third component from a selection of smart layers, enabling Welspun to also manufacture products for the health care and hygiene sectors.

 Cherian Thomas, CEO of Welspun Advanced Textiles, says: “We believe that the global demand for disposable products will show solid growth as economies and consumers become more hygiene- and environment-conscious. Our choice of ANDRITZ as our partner matches our shared view, which has a bias towards sustainable technologies. ANDRITZ’s neXline spunlace can provide savings on energy and water with the technology delivered. Welspun focuses on sustainability, and our site itself is being developed in compliance with the “Indian Green Building Certification.”

Welspun is the largest global exporter of home textiles. Innovation and quality lie at the heart of the company’s success, which already has nonwoven production lines in operation, including needlepunch and spunlace equipment. With its new plant in Telangana, Welspun will significantly increase its existing spunlace capacity and also maintain a broad range of applications as the final products are used in hygiene, home care and industrial cleaning. The new, advanced facility is a 100,000 sqm greenfield development that is part of a larger 1,500,000 sqm industrial complex also accommodating the Welspun floorings facility.
