Environmental news and technical  innovation in the nonwovens sector

FRIEDBERG - Autefa Solutions will present its latest customizable needlepunch production lines at next week's Techtextil India, which takes place from 12-14 September at the Jio World Convention Centre in Mumbai.

Autefa says that its comprehensive range of nonwoven needlepunch lines, which are tailored to meet specific customer requirements, are designed to offer the highest possible levels of performance, reliability and quality.

Needle punching is renowned for its ease of operation, low energy consumption, consistent product quality and reduced operating costs. Amongst Autefa's latest technological innovations aimed at meeting the evolving needs of the industry, is the 3-level closed-loop control system, which provides customers with real-time web quality monitoring and improvement capabilities.

At the heart of the system is a state-of-the-art scanner that meticulously evaluates the weight distribution of the finished product. This critical data is used as the basis for real-time adjustments in the crosslapper and card infeed section, ensuring highly consistent distribution of the carded web.

The WebMax web profile control system is seamlessly integrated into the 3-level closed loop control system. This integration ensures uniform web profiling in both machine direction and cross direction, a distinctive edge treatment that helps reduce edge-related problems and extend felt life.

At the show, Autefa will also present its latest solutions for sustainable textile production.

"As the fashion industry increasingly prioritises sustainability, the demand for circularity solutions in textile is also soaring," says Autefa. "Both consumers and companies are actively seeking ways to recycle “fast fashion” and reduce the environmental impact of their choices. In response to this pivotal trend, Autefa Solutions is proud to introduce a range of groundbreaking solutions designed to process and reuse various types of fibres, including reclaimed, natural, and man-made materials.

For example, illustrating a significant step forward in sustainable textile production, the Airlay V 12/R Aerodynamic Web Forming machine can be combined with the Stylus Needle Loom or HiPerTherm Oven to fulfill customer requirements for maximum productivity and consistent high quality.

Elsewhere. a collaboration between Autefa Solutions and PAMA Paper Machinery brings together the best of two worlds—fibre-based web forming, consolidation, and drying technology from the nonwovens industry with wetlaid technology commonly used in the paper industry.

"Wetlaid-Spunlace technology is the ideal choice for producing sustainable and cost-effective nonwovens from 100% cellulosic raw materials like cellulose pulp, viscose, or Lyocell fibres," says Autefa. "In a world challenged by rising raw material and energy costs, this innovative technology offers energy-saving solutions for sustainable product manufacturing."
