Monforts Delivers Tenter With Conveyor Belt To Lohmann

Germany-based Lohmann Vliesstoffe GmbH and Co. KG has installed a Montex tenter with a conveyor belt from A. Monforts Textilmaschinen, also based in Germany. The new equipment, which replaces a 50-year-old tenter and belt dryer, will enable Lohmann to increase production volumes for its nonwoven fabrics.

The Montex performs as a conventional tenter, and also provides a relaxation operation when used with a DynAir dryer in a one-line configuration, according to Monforts. The combination range therefore performs both production processes.

"This offers us not only savings in space, but also potential savings in operating and maintenance costs," said Wolfgang Riediger, Ph.D., plant manager, Lohmann. Lohmann, part of TWE Vliesstoffwerke comprising 13 textile companies, is using the machine to finish nonwoven fabrics up to 2.6 meters wide and weighing from 200 grams per square meter (g/m 2) to 1,500 g/m 2.
