Efficient spunbond tech for growing market

Oerlikon Neumag meltblown process today enables cost-efficient manufacture of meltblown nonwovens with the quality standards of tomorrow.

Oerlikon Neumag will present itself at this year’s IDEA in Boston with its extensive technology portfolio for the production of nonwovens: from spunbond and meltblown to airlaid through to staple fibres for the production of carded nonwovens. Areas of application include technical, such as filtration, roofing, geotextiles and automotive, in addition to medical and hygiene applications.

Cost reductions of up to 30%

The proportion of nonwovens manufactured directly from polymer granulate now amounts to almost 50 per cent of the total market, and its share is continuing to grow. The trend is towards lighter surface weights that despite everything still meet the high quality standards. Benchmark comparisons with current products in Europe show that with the spunbond technology of Oerlikon Neumag, the required qualities are achieved with reduced surface weights. This results in raw material savings of over 5 per cent. Furthermore, the machine builder from Neumünster has optimised the energy consumption of its systems. The new generation of systems saves almost 20 per cent of the energy requirement in spinning alone. Together with the raw material savings and further technology optimisations, the conversion costs are up to 30 per cent below those of the spunbond systems producing today. The optimised meltblown technology defines new requirements for the production of filter nonwovens. Whether as stand-alone mono and bicomponent systems, or as Plug & Produce components in existing systems, the Oerlikon Neumag meltblown process today enables cost-efficient manufacture of meltblown nonwovens with the quality standards of tomorrow.

Airlaid technology

Production of high-quality, light airlaid nonwovens with economically attractive production speeds and system throughputs is nowadays in demand. In this area, the forming head of the Oerlikon Neumag airlaid technology with a high uniformity and homogenous fibre placement, even with extremely thin nonwovens, is setting standards. For manufacturers of carded nonwovens, who in future would like to produce their fibres in-house, Oerlikon Neumag offers a comprehensive technology portfolio. The economically viable system capacities for special mono and bico fibres made of PP, PET and other polymers start at 5 t per day.
