International technology Group will be presenting its new developments and innovative solutions regarding nonwovens production and textile solutions.

New calender

The new calender Xcal Raconip TT mainly targets customers experienced in the manufacture of technical textiles with highest quality standards, for example, sports and work wear, sailcloth, parachute fabrics, or packaging materials. It contains an innovative, deflection-controlled roll, the Raconip TT. The roll offers highest flexibility by providing unrestricted profiling over the entire fabric width by means of hydrostatic pistons.

Wetlaid for glass fibers

Nonwoven end products based on glass fibers can be found almost everywhere: in ceiling tiles, cushion vinyl flooring, insulation, wallpaper and surfaces, geotextiles, batteries, roofing materials, as well as other applications. Glass fiber as a basic component is an excellent composite material and offers numerous advantages that lend the resulting products unique properties. And because of its wide range of applications, products made of glass fiber material have a strong, growing market.

The manufacture of products based on glass fibers requires particularly gentle treatment in the stock preparation and laying processes. Details of this new configuration will be presented to interested visitors for the first time.

Needleloom systems

Another focus of ANDRITZ at Techtextil 2019 is its needlepunch technology, which the company has been supplying successfully for many years to a variety of industries such as geotextiles, roofing materials, filtration, technical felts, carpeting, and many more. The needlelooming process gives the material the decisive properties for consistently high quality. Due to the versatile specifications and processing quality of its needleloom systems combined with robustness for a sustainable product life cycle, Andritz presents its solutions for further innovative end uses wherever this form of mechanical bonding is required.

With a 3D-print model of the SDV needleloom at the booth in conjunction with Augmented Reality, the visitor can gain a unique insight into the smart service solutions marketed under the Metris technology brand name. This includes the new Metris spare part catalog as well as digitally based technical documentation.
