Avintiv Selects Oerlikon Neumag Airlaid System

Charlotte-based Avintiv recently completed an installation at its Benson, N.C., facility of an airlaid web forming system from Germany-based Oerlikon Neumag. The line will manufacture airlaid nonwovens for hygiene products.

The installation took just three months and was followed by a three-week commissioning phase. “It was thanks to the close and intensive collaboration between our customer and us,” said Hartmut Claussen, head of project engineering, Oerlikon Neumag. “Both parties acted as one team, and are really happy to have reached our common targets.”
