ANDRITZ's needlepunch line for Italian firm

For the first time in Italy, the line will feature air-through bonding capabilities in combination with calendering.

ANDRITZ has received an order from Manifattura Fontana, based in Valstagna, Italy, and part of the Belgian technical textile company Sioen Industries, to supply a neXline needlepunch eXcelle line for the production of geotextiles. Start-up of the line is scheduled for October 2018.

The scope of supply includes all of the machines from opening and blending to an automatic packaging system. The line incorporates cutting-edge ANDRITZ technologies and equipment, such as:

• a TCF-X high-capacity chute feed capable of processing long staple fibers

• an eXcelle card with 3.5 m working width

• the state-of-the-art ProDyn and Isolayer systems for weight evenness

• high-speed needlelooms with the innovative Zeta drafters to fine-tune tensile strength parameters and boost the production capacity for lightweight fabrics.

For the first time in Italy, the line will feature air-through bonding capabilities in combination with calendering. It is targeted to become the most productive line in Europe.
