Voith and Truetzschler: Successful start-up of wet-laid spunlacing line for the production of flushable wipes at Hangzhou Nbond Nonwoven
Voith supplied a key component, the HydroFormer. The HydroFormer concept builds on Voith’s long expertise in the pulp and paper industry. With HydroFormer technology the suspension is highly diluted, so nonwovens can be produced entirely from cellulose, a renewable raw material. In addition to the HydroFormer, Voith delivered the entire stock preparation, the approach flow system, auxiliaries and onsite service. An entire automation and control package was included as well.
Truetzschler supplied the well-known AquaJet technology, a drum dryer and a winder. The components are based on the longstanding know-how of Truetzschler. They were adapted to the needs of the wet-laid spunlacing process.
This resource-efficient production line will play an important role for Nbond in strengthening its market position in China and even on the global non-woven fabric market.
