With its new WLM1 nonwovens production line, Albaad, one of the world’s largest producers of cosmetic wipes, is banking on Trützschler Nonwovens and Voith, two well-established technology leaders in the field of wet-laid nonwovens.
With their innovative WLS (wet-laid/spunlace) technology, Voith and Trützschler ensure flexible and efficient production of wet-laid and hydro-entangled nonwovens from 100% cellulose at Albaad’s new WLM1 production line. The client for the project in Dimona, Israel, is Albaad, one of the three largest manufacturers of wet wipes and feminine hygiene products in the world.
Already in the first phase after start-up, the WLM1 completely met Albaad’s expectations: the nonwovens manufactured at a speed of over 200 m/min. exhibited extremely high product quality. Gadi Choresh, Plant Manager of Albaad in Dimona, is satisfied with the work by Voith and Trützschler, and says, “The installation and start-up of the machine went very well. With their professionalism and high level of commitment, the team has ensured the success of the project.”
