Environmental news and technical  innovation in the nonwovens sector

GRAZ - International technology Group Andritz has received a repeat order from Zhejiang Saintyear Textile Co., Ltd., based in China, to supply a second, complete neXline spunlace line for the production of premium-quality nonwoven roll goods. The line is scheduled for start-up during the third quarter of 2022.

The order comes just nine months after the company placed a first order for a complete high-speed spunlace line, with Zhejiang Saintyear Textile deciding to rely on Andritz once again by purchasing another complete line dedicated to the production of first-class wipes. The production capacity will be up to 2,800 kg/h for lightweight fabrics.

Andritz will provide a full line – from web forming to drying. The scope of supply includes the precise opening and blending machinery from Laroche – newly acquired by the Andritz Group, two inline TT cards, a proven JetlaceEssentiel unit for hydroentanglement, and the efficient neXdry through-air dryer.

“Spunlace nonwovens are definitely a must nowadays due to their versatility, and we want to offer our customers the best-quality nonwovens," said Mr. Li Yi Ming, CEO. "Hence, we had to go for the benchmarking company in the production of premium roll goods. This is why we have decided to rely on an Andritz nonwovens system offering the best performance and runnability. We have already purchased one complete spunlace line recently from Andritz that will go into operation in mid-2022. Project execution is running so smoothly so far that we did not hesitate to renew our trust by ordering a second line.”

Founded in 1981, Zhejiang Saintyear Textile Co., Ltd. is the core subsidiary of Saintyear Holding Group. With an annual output of more than 500 million metres of different fabrics, ranging from cottons, hemp and blending fibers to yarn-dyed and technical textiles, the company has become a major partner for domestic and famous international brands of clothing.
