ANDRITZ receives order from Chongqing Double Elephant
ANDRITZ receives order for needlepunch production lines from Chongqing Double Elephant, China
International technology Group
ANDRITZ has received an order to supply four new needlepunch lines for nonwoven
production from Chongqing Double Elephant Microfiber Material Co., Ltd., China.
These lines are scheduled for
installation and start-up in the fourth quarter of 2021.
The needlepunch lines by ANDRITZ are
designed to process islands-in-the-sea fibres dedicated mainly to the
production of high-quality synthetic leather products. Once completed, the
lines will produce 30 million meters a year of microfiber nonwoven materials.
The production lines are equipped
with an ANDRITZ carding machine and the newly developed ProfileÂ® crosslapper as
well as the advanced-technology ProWid closed-loop system from ANDRITZ. The
system can monitor the weight uniformity (CV%) of the entire product online and
predict the weight distribution changes caused by the bonding process. In
addition, the web weight can be reduced by controlled stretching, which solves
the issue of fibre accumulation at the edges caused by traditional crosslapping
methods. Both the weight and the uniformity of the product can be automatically
adjusted via the closed-loop function as set on the ANDRITZ gauge.
