Andritz has received an order from Taiwan-based Sheng Hung Industrial Co., Ltd. to install a complete spunlace plant at its site in Taoyuan.
This latest investment is Sheng Hung’s fourth Andritz spunlace line, and it will enable the company to further innovate its product offerings for specialty nonwovens and heavyweight fabrics. The line will start production in the second quarter of 2019.
The flexible, crosslapped web-forming plant delivered by Andritz will produce multiple grades from 30 to 400 gsm, and will be equipped with an engineered, high-quality aperturing/patterning solution delivered together with a Jetlace Avantage C hydroentanglement unit. The line will be completed by an efficient neXdry Avantage through-air dryer and an Andritz filtration system, and thus will be able to meet stringent local environmental requirements.
