Environmental news and technical  innovation in the nonwovens sector

GRAZ - China’s Meisheng Group has started up a new Andritz needlepunch line at its facility in Shaoxing City, Zhejiang Province.

It is the third line supplied by Andritz to the manufacturer of high-end nonwoven synthetic leather and will be used to enable Meisheng to address the growing demand for synthetic suede in the automotive industry, particularly for New Energy Vehicles (NEVs).

The advanced line is equipped with a ProWid system that allows Meisheng to ensure an optimum web weight regularity across the full product width. As a result, the web distribution is drastically improved, which reduces material consumption (fibres) and improves web weight evenness (CV%) – factors that are particularly important in synthetic leather manufacturing for automotive applications.

“In view of the strong demand for our premium synthetic suede, especially for NEVs, we have placed our trust in Andritz for the third time,” said Qian Guochun, CEO of Meisheng. “With the new needlepunch line we are expanding our capacity while maintaining our high quality standards.”

Founded in 1994, Zhejiang Meisheng New Material Co. is an internationally renowned maker of high-end textiles and nonwoven synthetic leather. Through a consistent focus on R&D, Meisheng says it has established itself as a pioneer in the production of nonwoven microfibre synthetic leather in China.
