Rieter has recently presented a new
meltblown technology, new JETlace® Essentiel spunlace system for
lightweight products and SPUNjet®, the innovative online
combination of spunbond and spunlace technologies for new nonwovens
properties. Rieter, the leading spunlace supplier offers complete systems
together with NSC nonwoven.
Top performances in spunmelt
From 1999, Rieter has been developing an innovative spunbond system, called
PERFObondTM 3000. It produces the most uniform fabric of the
market for high quality nonwovens products. The flexibility of the line
allows to create finished fabric weights with a weight between 10 and 150
gsm for all range of applications and at the highest productive rate of the
market-up to 300 kg/h/m of beam.
The PERFObondTM 3000 single beam lines are able to generate low weight
fabrics that are qualified for the hygiene market. This achievement has been
made possible by the basic principles of PERFObondTM 3000: process and
environment stability, correct process parameter control and key components
of high quality level.
The main advantages of the Rieter spunbond systems are:
Isotropic MD: CD ratio
Excellent product uniformity
High capacity: 5000T/year/beam
Energy consumption: <1kwh/kg
A new generation of Rieter meltblown
To complete its spunmelt product range, Rieter launched its own
meltblown system, called EMBLO®. Due to its unique design, which
reduces cleaning time and installation cost, it offers to the nonwovens
industry cost savings as well as quality benefits. Today, Rieter has
acquired meltblown experience through the installation of several industrial
lines. Therefore, the combination of Rieter know-how and Rieter innovation
gave birth to a new generation of Rieter meltblown system.
This latest development is designed based on customer specifictions to
produce monolithic as well as layered fabrics starting at 1gsm and 1µm
fibres. This cutting edge technology is characterised by extraordinarily
narrow basis weight and filament size distributions, providing a highly
homogeneous web structure even at high specific throughputs.
Furthermore this new Rieter meltblown system can be perfectly integrated in
line with the innovative spunbond towers, PERFObondTM 3000, to
produce SMS webs. The combination of these two technologies will enable the
production of spunmelt nonwovens dedicated to hygiene, filtration and
Today, with more than 150 spunlace lines in operation, Rieter Perfojet is
the unrivalled leader in spunlace system. The Rieter JETlace®
3000 technology produces state-of-the-art spunlace fabrics with high
productivity, highest reliability at lowest manufacturing costs. This
state-of-the-art machine is designed to produce all kind of spunlace fabrics
from 30 to 500 gsm using all types of synthetic and natural fibres.
As a general contractor for complete spunlace lines, customers are given the
opportunity to concentrate on product and fabric development. Thanks to the
co-operation with NSC nonwoven the offer for complete systems in spunlace
technology eases the investment process and lowers its risks. The expertise
of Rieter and NSC nonwoven in process technologies from opening &
blending equipment, cards, crosslappers to fully automatic high speed
winders and slitter-rewinders completes perfectly Rieter Perfojet's
hydro-entanglement and air through dryer technologies.
New JETlace® Essentiel - for top performance and quick
For some years, the spunlace market has been oriented to the production
of light weight fabrics dedicated to mass market such as wipes. These final
applications for commodity products are consumer driven. In order to respond
to that trend and serve this booming market, Rieter is now offering its
latest spunlace machine under the name of JETlace® Essentiel.
The innovative configuration enables to produce spunlace fabrics from 30 to
80gsm at the highest capacity ever reached -- up to 2,700 kg/h. This very
economic technology is suitable for wipes, hygiene and medical applications
made from polyester, viscose and cotton. JETlace® Essentiel
systems are available in predefined optimised layouts and configurations to
reduce delivery time, maintenance and operating efforts.
SPUNjet® - a new breath for nonwovens industry
The online combination of spunlaid and spunlace technologies called
SPUNjet® creates nonwovens with new characteristics. Rieter
Perfojet is the only machine supplier with both technologies, offering such
innovation and performance in the two fastest growing processes in the
nonwoven industry: spunmelt and spunlace as system supply.
SPUNjet® fabrics benefit from the unique uniformity of the
spunlaid web produced with the PERFObondTM 3000 machine and the perfect
quality of water needling from state-of-the-art injectors, thus producing a
new fabric reference for the nonwoven market. The SPUNjet®
process offers the nonwoven market a fabric that combines the best
properties ever reached in bulkiness, softness, drapability, tensile
strength, and isotropic MD:CD ratio.
SPUNjet® brings innovation and performance to a wide range of
applications, changing the face of nonwovens, creating a new generation of
