Machinery for the nonwovens industry
In recent years the company has brought several innovations onto the market, such as the continuous mixing opener CMO-W2, which ensures a very good blend of the different fiber types and a gentle dissolution of the fiber flakes by continuously feeding 2 types of fiber already at the first opening point. As a result, the production capacity of the opening can be significantly increased and the use of large space-consuming mixing boxes is no longer necessary.
Another topic that has become increasingly important in recent years is the recycling of edge stripes and deposit rolls. Here, the company has developed an opening machine that can reopen very heavily consolidated materials that previously had to be disposed of for a fee, and return this material to the process. This results in a considerable savings potential since no disposal costs are incurred and fewer new fibers have to be used to fabricate the product. As a result, the payback period of the carding opener is usually well below one year.
Graute also helps its customers to convert existing systems or undertake complete modernizations.
