The Andritz NeXline wetlace producing wipes at the Dalian Ruiguang Nonwoven Group in China has successfully achieved full operation capacity of 15,000 ton/year.
A complete NeXline wetlace line was installed at Dalian Ruiguang that integrates stock preparation, wet forming, hydroentanglement and drying. Thanks to the flexibility of the line, Dalian Ruiguang is able to produce a full range of wipes applications, including industrial composite wipes.
The highly flexible Wetlace technology, combining wet forming and hydroentanglement, is especially suited for the production of flushable wipes that are dispersible, 100% biodegradable, and without any chemical binders. This fulfills the highest environmental standards for the end products, and enables the production of certified nonwovens quality according to the latest EDANA/INDA guidelines for flushable wipes.
Successful performance by the NeXline wetlace sets a new benchmark in Asia, and underlines Andritz’s position as one of the global market leaders for the supply of complete nonwovens lines, key components and services.
