FRIEDBERG - Higher productivity, sustainability and Industry 4.0 compatible solutions were all key elements of the Autefa Solutions presentation at the recent ITMA Asia + CITME exhibition.
Held last month in Shanghai, the company presented the latest solutions from its Nonwovens Technology, Woollen Carding Technology and Baling Technology units. Visitors to the stand were able to hear about the economic and technical benefits of Autefa as a systems supplier for full nonwovens lines in technology for carded-crosslapped needlepunching, aerodynamic web forming, spunlace production, and thermobonding.
In needlepunching, the company has developed monitoring and quality improvement techniques with its 3-level Closed Loop Control System. Here, a scanner evaluates weight distribution in the final product, while the control system adjusts the profile at the crosslapper and the card feed accordingly. The 3-level Closed Loop Control System also incorporates the WebMax Web Profile Control, which ensures that the fabric profile is regular in both directions. This results in excellent fabric uniformity, with consequent savings in materials and costs.
As a market leader in fully-automatic bale packing systems for staple fibre and tow, Autefa offers the entire range, from fibre transport to baler – as well as bale transport and warehouse storage of the pressed, wrapped and strapped bales. The Uni-Fork System from Autefa Solutions eliminates bottlenecks in fibre production logistics while with its flexible baling concept, Autefa says it sets the benchmark for fast-growing fibre line capacities.
