Autefa: Needling simulation tool
The company presents its portfolio as a full-line supplier for carded crosslapped needlepunch lines, aerodynamic web forming technology, spunlace, and thermobonding lines.
Autefa Solutions lines cover the needs of the highly-competitive nonwovens market. An improved and even surface quality has been set as key target by the customers. Therefore, the machine manufacturer offers the service of a customized needle board pattern. The i-Point needling simulation tool increases the capacity and the quality of needlepunched fabrics. The development of new needle patterns and the evaluation of surface quality are much more effective and economic with the i- Point software technology. It creates a layout of stripper and bed plate including the elliptic needling (Variliptic). This customized design of needle pattern, which takes also draft and shrinkage into consideration, reduces the process optimization time on customer site.
The needlepunch lines produce an even and homogenous fabric with outstanding technical performance in terms of tensile strength and evenness (MD/CD ratio). During the last years the company sold several complete lines to leading producer Alcantara, Italy and to Toray Group, Japan.
