The second newly-delivered Oerlikon Nonwoven meltblown system was commissioned at Innovatec’s state-of-the-art machine park recently. With it, the nonwovens manufacturer, based in Troisdorf in North Rhine, Westphalia, immediately started producing polypropylene filter nonwovens in particular for use in protective face masks, which have been increasingly in demand since the start of the coronavirus pandemic and whose domestic manufacture is being supported by the German Government. Here, the highly-efficient Oerlikon Nonwoven meltblown technology from Neumünster is supporting the production of these highly-effective filter media.


Rainer Straub, Head of Oerlikon Nonwoven
, said, “Back in June 2020, Oerlikon Nonwoven delivered the first so-called 2-beam system to Innovatec.” Together with the second production line, Innovatec has been able to almost double its filter nonwoven output to date. The North Rhine-Westphalian company now has filter media production capacities that can be used to manufacture up to 2.5 billion operating room filter masks or a billion highly-effective FFP2 masks per year.

A leading manufacturer of meltblown mask nonwovens in Europe, Innovatec, is participating in the German Government’s ‘Nonwovens Production’ grant programme to ramp up its output capacities and has for this reason already received a visit from top German politicians, including Peter Altmaier, Federal Minister for Economic Affairs and Armin Laschet, North Rhine-Westphalia Minister-President. Together, politicians and the industry want to ensure that the production capacities for protective equipment continue to grow in Germany and that above all critical supply chains are secured at both national and European levels. And companies such as Innovatec and Oerlikon Nonwoven are actively contributing towards this.
