Truetzschler solutions for the production of sustainable wipes. INDEX20, the biggest nonwoven fair of the world, will be held at Palexpo in Geneva between 31 March and 3 April 2020. Several important companies that produce nonwoven technologies, equipment and materials take their places at the fair. Truetzschler Nonwovens and Truetzschler Card Clothing will meet their visitors at the fair booth number 2327. Truetzschler introduces new line concepts and wires for efficiently making sustainable nonwovens for wipes or hygiene textiles.
Consumers love textiles made from cotton fibres. They highly appreciate the soft and natural touch not only in garments but also in other products coming in contact with the skin.
Fibre fineness – most fibres range between 3-5.5 Mic or 1.0-2.8 dtex – strength and absorbent capacity make cotton fibres an ideal material for single-use dry and wet wipes. There are just two reasons for the limited usage of cotton fibres in single-use nonwovens. Firstly, cotton is higher priced than less expensive viscose/polyester blends most times. And secondly, cotton fibres are natural products whose qualities vary both regionally and from year to year.
At INDEX Truetzschler Nonwovens addresses these challenges by introducing new line concepts for efficiently making cotton nonwovens for wipes or hygiene textiles. The company discuss proven technologies which reliably turn even comber noils, short or unbleached cotton fibres into high-value products.
Other Truetzschler solutions
Another focus is on Truetzschler and Voith’s WLS (Wet-laying/Spunlacing) technology. They will discuss opportunities of WLS-lines and WLS in combination with other technologies for providing consumers with eco-friendly, sustainable and affordable single-use nonwoven products.
Truetzschler Card Clothing, the in-house competence centre with respect to clothings and comprehensive service, presents its latest development; the SUPERTIP wire generation which brings card clothings to a new level of quality and profitability. Greatly reduced wear, longer life span, consistent quality at a very high level are amongst the main features of SUPERTIP. As a system developer, Truetzschler meet these high demands with their three clothings in SUPERTIP design and their 300 modifications. Company’s high-performance clothings are made of special steel alloy. The individual alloy components are characterized by narrow tolerances and high production accuracy. Thus, newly mounted clothings do not have to be ground, which significantly extends the maintenance intervals.
