During Techtextil India, visitors experienced future-proof solutions for improving quality and productivity while visiting Autefa Solutions in Hall 4 Booth D44. The company presented its portfolio as a preferred full-line supplier for carded- crosslapped needlepunch lines, aerodynamic web forming technology, spunlace, and thermobonding lines for producing nonwoven to cater to wide range of applications such as filtration, geotextile, automotive, carpets, technical felts, waddings, insultations, wipes, hygiene, etc. In the premium nonwoven segment, Autefa Solutions has a comprehensive product range in both forming and bonding systems.
With the introduction of the new Hydroentanglement Machine V- Jet FUTURA, Autefa Solutions offers now the entire line for Spunlace producers. The V-Jet injector for Spunlace machines and the Square Drum Dryer SQ-V, both are innovative contributions to energy savings and reduced manufacturing costs.
The Aerodynamic Web Forming machine Airlay FUTURA, which is based on the successful Airlay K 12 (sold more than 400 times), is very well received. Autefa Solutions has repeatedly introduced innovative machines, including the Crosslapper with the Closed Loop System, which influences the quality of an entire line and also saving of raw material. Autefa lines cover the needs of the highly-competitive nonwovens market with solutions ensuring lower energy cost, lower maintenance cost combined with higher rate of production and superior quality. An improved and even surface quality has been set as key target by the customers. Therefore, Autefa Solutions offers the service of a customised needle board pattern.
The i-Point needling simulation tool increases the capacity and the quality of needlepunched fabrics. The development of new needle patterns and the evaluation of surface quality are much more effective and economic with the i- Point software technology. It creates a layout of stripper and bed plate including the elliptic needling (Variliptic). This customised design of needle pattern, which takes also draft and shrinkage into consideration, reduces the process optimisation time on customer site. Autefa Solutions needlepunch lines produce an even and homogenous fabric with outstanding technical performance in terms of tensile strength and evenness (MD/CD ratio).
With innovations and great commitment as well as with partners and customers, Autefa Solutions will implement the goal â€œLeads the way in nonwoven linesâ€. Since 2011, the name Autefa Solutions stands for the combined expertise and long-standing tradition of AUTEFA from Germany, Fehrer from Austria, the Italian companies FOR and OCTIR from Biella, and Strahm Hi-Tex from Switzerland.
