Innovations form the area of nonwovens machinery
The Dilo “Hypertex” installation, consisting of a yarn laydown unit from Ontec Automation GmbH, Naila/Germany, and subsequent needling, provides highly efficient inline production of reinforced needlefelts. With this system, scrim structures and pre-needled web layers can be needled together at speeds up to 20 m/min.
The new needle arrangement “8000 X” ensures homogeneous distribution of needle penetrations in the felt over a wide range of advance/stroke. The results are considered a breakthrough for improved surface qualities, particularly for car interiors.
These innovations are only a part of the continuous development and refinement work for needling and spunlacing lines.
