According to Autefa Solutions, the Turkish nonwovens market covers almost all application fields. Typical applications of needle-punched nonwovens are the production of artificial leather, automotive felts, carpets and carpet backings, insulation materials for thermal and noise insulation, geotextiles, industrial wipes and technical felts.
During ITM 2018 in Istanbul, visitors will be able to see the economic and technical advantages of Autefa Solutions as a full line supplier for carded-crosslapped needlepunch lines and thermobonding lines. Autefa Solutions nonwovens lines meet customers’ requirements for quality web formation, bonding, active weight regulation and minimal maintenance.
Giacomo Meucci, Regional Sales Director, Autefa Solutions, says, “We see an increasing demand in reliable and cost-efficient production lines for the highly competitive automotive market. Our customers need high-speed lines and an improved quality.”
The Web Master Futura card is designed for high production speeds with a special focus to improve the cost factor of maintenance. The different modules of the card, means feeding group, main cylinder, transfer group and doffers, are each placed on a separate carriage. The carriages are connected to each other and form a “train” which allows easy and full access for cleaning and maintenance.
The crosslapper Topliner in combination with Web Profile Control WebMax is the key to web quality. Topliner optimizes the CV-value, which leads to a significant reduction of material costs. The two drafting zones of the WebMax ensure a slight pre-draft and a precise draft of the web in the second drafting zone. This is of special importance to guarantee constant quality at high production output with all raw material types.
Autefa Solutions offers a wide product range including Stylus single- and double-board needle looms, tandem needle looms, velour-, structuring and patterning needle looms as well as needle looms for paper maker felts. Needle looms for fabrics and needle looms for glass fiber insulation mats were requested by customers. Customers like the extremely reliable and robust Stylus series (from 1 m up to 16 m working widths). The advantage of the design offers vibration free running, needle densities up to 30,000 needles per meter and the highest production due to stroke frequencies up to 3,000 rpm in continuous operation.
Autefa Solutions is a full-line supplier and a market leader for top quality artificial leather lines.
