Autefa´s needle looms stylus
AUTEFA Solutions delivers turn-key lines as well as individual machines for nonwovens manufacturing. Application fields are the production of artificial leather, filter products and paper-machine felts, automotive felts, geotextiles, floor coverings, felts for insulation and nonwovens for the hygiene industry. CEO Dr Stefan Schlichter explains: ´We notice a trend in reducing of web weights. Customers want a homogenous product and high production speeds. The Needle Loom Stylus uses it´s Variliptic drive system for gentle treatment of the fibres at high speeds. The Crosslapper Topliner, in combination with WebMax, significantly improves the web uniformity over the entire width.? The Webmaster Card works on basis of a patented double doffer system between the two main card cylinders and offers two main advantages. It maximises the production of the cards and improves the blending and fibre distribution on the second cylinder, facilitating improved product quality even at high production rates.
The Crosslapper Topliner is a key machine in many nonwoven installations. The Crosslapper Topliner increases the product quality in new installations or as a replacement in existing lines. The Crosslapper improves the MD/CD ratio and the web strength. The Needle Loom Stylus is equipped with the innovative Variliptic drive system, which enables high production speeds while also ensuring a gentle needling of the nonwoven fabric. This is particularly important during the first process step, the preneedling. The Variliptic drive system optimizes the surface of the nonwoven fabric, while also protecting fibres and minimizing the needle wear. 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. Energy Efficiency is guaranteed by EnRec Technology which offers a 6-level energy saving concept which substantially reduces the energy consumption of new or existing lines. The outstanding payback on the line and the functionality of the EnRec Systems convinced already more than hundred customers all over the world.
