Rocketing demand at Shanghai nonwovens event, AUTEFA technology serves spunlace boom and more...

The nonwovens sector is looking forward to a celebration of both technical and commercial progress at the upcoming SINCE conference and exhibition in Shanghai. Worldwide markets for some applications – especially spunlaced products for hygiene and sanitizing wipes – have rocketed during the pandemic. And AUTEFA Solutions is ready to cater for a continuation of this “huge demand” with its latest systems being presented at the event.

Says AUTEFA Solutions CMO Marco Fano: “Our unique web-forming technology ideally meets our customers’ needs at this time, and we see the upward trend in order intake being sustained in future, particularly in combined card and crosslapper solutions. Our advanced spunlace manufacturing systems are able to deliver high standards of quality and performance, with the all-important advantage of rapid investment payback.”

SINCE is being held from July 22 to 24 at the Shanghai World Expo Exhibition and Convention Center. AUTEFA Solutions will showcase its full range of future-proofed nonwovens machinery, covering needlepunch lines, aerodynamic web forming, spunlace and thermobonding equipment. Application sectors range from hygiene and wipes through filtration, geotextiles, automotive, carpets, technical felts, wadding and insulation.

In the premium nonwovens segment, AUTEFA Solutions is renowned for the quality, durability and performance of its technology for both forming and bonding processes, incorporating the expertise of world-leading group brands such as Fehrer, FOR and Strahm.

Marco Fano stresses that the group’s success in the market currently spans multiple nonwovens sectors and end-uses, as well as the booming spunlace business: “It’s not only spunlace where activity is strong,” he says. “For example, we have a number of new installations and orders for needlepunching systems in spunbond applications, and most of these relate to customer requests for machines with high production capability.”
