At this year’s INDEX from October 19th to October 22nd, Truetzschler Nonwovens, Truetzschler Card Clothing and Voith introduce new solutions for manufacturing a broad range of sustainable nonwovens for wipes, hygiene or medical textiles at booth 2327.
Plastic-free initiatives worldwide affect everyone: consumers, product developers, nonwoven producers and finally nonwoven machinery suppliers.
Truetzschler Nonwovens and Voith address the quest for more sustainable and affordable nonwovens in the wipes segment by two proven technologies for manufacturing pulp-based nonwovens. “Firstly, WLS (Wet-Laid/Spunlaced) lines. More than a handful are in service worldwide and mainly target the flushable wipes market. At INDEX we’ll introduce our latest next Level/WLS baby and body wipes, a joint development by Voith and Truetzschler,” informed Truetzschler.
The second focus is on carded/pulp (CP) products. A CP line – including aTWF-NCT card placed between the HydroFormer and the AquaJet is already running to full capacity at customer site. Various CP materials, including innovative next Level/CP wipes, will be on display at the booth. Visitors can explore and discuss characteristics, benefits, line concepts and equipment.
Visitors can also directly compare cotton nonwovens to a broad range of cellulose-based material. Truetzschler Card Clothing will present its latest development – the Z wire for high-speed roller cards. A new geometry minimizes fibre fly and allows for better carding and more stable web forming.
