Küsters Introduces Twin Calender

Germany-based Eduard Küsters Maschinenfabrik GmbH & Co. KG’s Nonwoven Division recently
introduced a Twin Calender that enables the changing of a pattern or the switching from embossing
to bonding within minutes.

The company said the calender can be equipped with the Hot-S-Roll or the HyCon-Roll. The
standard calender provides for material widths of up to 6 meters and production speeds of up to
1,000 meters per minute. In addition, the parked roll can be replaced during production, thus
improving flexibility and cutting set-up time, according to Küsters.
