04/03/2009 - Rieter Nonwovens Systems' innovations at ANEX09
Rieter Nonwovens Systems will take the opportunity to present the latest innovations for spunlace, spunbond, and spunjet technologies from May 20 - 22 at ANEX09 on booth No. 1B15 together with NSC nonwoven.
JETlace® series, the state-of-the-art machines for spunlace
With more than 150 spunlace lines installed globally, Rieter is recognized as the unrivalled world leader in spunlace technology. Thanks to its experience, Rieter has developed several JETlace® machines designed to meet nonwovens producers' needs. One of Rieter's successes is JETlace® 3000, capable of producing excellent spunlace fabrics from 30 to 500gsm with capacities of up to 25 000 tons per year. The JETlace® series is recognized by nonwovens producers to be the most energy saving spunlace equipment worldwide.
JETlace® Avantage design for emerging markets
The JETlace® Avantage machine produces spunlace fabrics from 30 to 120gsm with capacities of up to 4 000 tons per year. This machine is the perfect tool for emerging countries to start spunlace nonwovens production. For Chinese projects, Rieter has the ability to manufacture this machine at its Changzhou plant in Jiangsu province, based on European design and quality standards and can therefore offer customers the opportunity to acquire it in RMB currency. This advantage,an efficient solution and reliable equipment therefore enable Chinese customers to produce high quality fabrics at very attractive prices. The Chinese location of Rieter Nonwovens Systems ensures quick service and a constant presence.
New nonwoven process for innovative fabrics - Spunjet
Rieter's expertise in the spunlace and the spunbond industry has given birth to a new nonwovens process, called Spunjet. This technology entails the hydro-entanglement of continuous filament in line, creating a new generation of nonwovens. The spunjet process offers the nonwovens market superior fabric properties with regard to fabric bulk, softness, drape, tensile strength and isotropic MD:CD ratio.
System supply in cooperation with NSC nonwoven
Through its successful collaboration with NSC nonwoven, Rieter has already supplied several complete spunlace lines as systems supplier. The producers benefit from the unique global know-how in nonwovens of a team of experts in engineering and processes.
