EGELSBACH - Eruslu Nonwovens Group is targeting entry into the biodegradable nonwovens market with the installation of an upgraded line from Truetzschler Nonwovens.
As part of the installation, Truetzschler will deliver equipment to enlarge an existing spunlacing line into a flexible, system for various light to heavyweight cotton-based fabrics.
When the Eruslu Nonwovens Group invested in a Truetzschler Nonwovens’ spunlacing line in 2015, it became clear that the company was heading for growth. The line, consisting of a single NCR random card, AquaJet and a drum dryer had already been laid out for later extension. All components were either fully equipped or designed to deliver higher performances.
Last year Eruslu decided to broaden its portfolio in the wipes segment by adding biodegradable products from renewable resources. The group took full advantage of the 2015 small capacity line and went for:
- A second NCR random and a NCA airlay card
- Fibre preparation and card feeding equipment for the two new cards
- More hydraulic power to reliably and efficiently hydroentangle multi-layer webs
- An extension to the dryer for increased evaporation capacity
After starting up in the second half of 2022, Eruslu will be operating an ultra-modern, highly flexible NCR-NCA-NCR spunlace line, the first of its kind in Turkey. The line is tailor-made to process virgin cotton fibres, comber noils and short fibres at high speeds. End products are top-quality, lightweight natural wipes or heavy-weight, three-layer nonwovens for cosmetic pads.
