NSC nonwoven has recently launched
Axcess, a new range of nonwoven machinery engineered for medium capacity
(tonnage) markets whilst maintaining the
quality standards of the high capacity ExcelleŽ nonwoven lines.
offers customers, who do not require the productive capacities provided with
NSC's ExcelleŽ production lines, an alternative to obtain drylaid nonwoven
lines where lower production capacities and lower capital investment costs
are better suited to their corporate strategies. NSC nonwoven launched the
Axcess A 30 new range of needlepunch line at the recent Asia ITMA Expo in
Shanghai, China where the reception was extremely positive, resulting in the
sale of multiple lines with many other projects under consideration.
strategy move for NSC nonwoven arrives at a particulary favourable time,
since the vast majority of the nonwoven producers is eagerly looking for
niche markets with added value. The market trend is clearly showing
increasing investments worldwide using the drylaid process, and in
particular crosslaid Needlepunching. With the technologies now available at
NSC nonwoven providing cost effective solutions, it perfectly meets the
industry expectation, with special focus for geo-textile, filtration and
automotive end applications. NSC nonwoven provides solutions to generate
unique fabrics properties with its ExcelleŽ ProDynŽ solutions. It will
shortly be enhanced by the IsoProDynŽ system.
ability to provide alternative lines which enables the customer to purchase
the needed capacity at a price point relative to their productive needs
without sacrificing engineering quality enables manufacturers in both niche
markets and emerging markets to expand or enter into needlepunch nonwovens
with economies of scale relative to their needs.
Axcess range of nonwoven technologies is designed not only for the
needlepunch industry but also for alternative bonding technologies where
direct web manufacturing lines enable the production of different nonwoven
fabrics such as Spunlace wipes with Rieter Perfojet Advantage technology, or
with other bonding technologies such as thermal, chemical or laminating for
composites nonwoven applications.
Axcess range of nonwoven technologies includes web forming carding systems,
batt forming crosslapping with profile capability, batt drafting and felt
drafters, needlelooms and winding systems. The engineering of the Axcess
range of machinery is based on the proven technologies of Asselin-Thibeau,
and therefore offers its customers a choice of manufacturing capacities
tailored to meet their investment and market demands.
