INDEX™ 17 Exhibitor Preview: Autefa Solutions

FRIEDBERG, Germany — February 2, 2017 — Following the slogan for this year’s INDEX, “Connecting you with nonwoven solutions”, company Autefa Solutions is ready to take up the challenge. Nowadays Nonwovens producers are looking for new energy saving and advanced technologies especially in the field of disposables.

The Autefa Solutions V‐Jet is a new hydroentanglement system which saves up to 30% of the hydraulic energy required for the Spunlace process. The patented jet‐strip design enables a pressure reduction while keeping the product quality constant in comparison to a standard jet‐strip. The Spunlace process is optimized with the Square Drum Dryer SQ‐V, which has significantly better energy efficiency and drying performance than a common Drum Dryer – at the same footprint.

The Crosslapper Topliner CL 4004 SL is characterised by a high infeed speed of up to 130 m/min and a precise weight distribution. These advantages are very important especially for lightweight applications in spunlace lines. The lapping of the web layers is continuously monitored, which minimizes rejects and saves material.

For the production of flushable wipes Autefa Solutions and Campen Machinery plan and realizes complete hydro laced airlaid process lines. The concept hits the specific need for medium and small size Airlaid production solutions.

There is also a growing interest in high speed through air thermobonding lines for hygiene products such as acquisition and distribution layers (ADL). These materials are used in baby diapers, sanitary napkins and adult incontinence products. The key strengths of the Autefa Solutions belt dryers are uniform airflow and the precisely adjustable temperature distribution, the ability to maintain loft or to create high densities. André Imhof, CEO Autefa Solutions Austria explains: “The customer today is more demanding and requires best possible Total Cost of Ownership (TCO).
