At this year’s Index from April 4th to 7th in Geneva, Oerlikon Neumag will showcase a broad technology portfolio targeted at efficient manufacturing of nonwovens. In stand 2314, Oerlikon Neumag experts will offer process solutions for industrial applications, such as filtration, roofing, geotextiles and automotive, as well as medical and hygiene applications.
For meltblown technology products, Oerlikon Neumag will be premiering two further innovations at Index. The new forming table for Oerlikon Neumag meltblown systems is characterized by its integrated multi-functionality and simultaneously considerably reduced footprint. It can be moved horizontally and vertically under the nozzle, and has various storage areas, which can be in multiple segments and custom-adjusted. This enables extremely high formation flexibility and hence increased product diversity.
The new FAUS system control and operating unit enables comprehensive automation of meltblown systems, and ensures a considerable increase in productivity and reliability. In its expandable delivery state, FAUS comprises five different modes of operation with a total of eight different programs, which guarantee that future high-end meltblown nonwovens can be manufactured even more efficiently.
In airlaid technology, Oerlikon Neumag solutions have been further optimized with the aim at catering to market demands. In addition to the high flexibility of forming technology that enables the production of simple wipes, wet-wipes and flushable wipes all the way through to particularly high-end tableware, hygiene and medical nonwovens, there is today a special focus on commercially attractive production speeds and system throughputs. The Oerlikon Neumag airlaid technology achieves these as a result of a new forming head, with which extremely high requirements-appropriate consistency of fiber laying can be carried out homogeneously even in the case of extremely thin nonwovens.
