ANDRITZ Nonwoven, part of international technology Group ANDRITZ (Graz, Austria), has successfully started up a complete, high-capacity needlepunch eXcelle line – from webforming to needlepunching – supplied to Eco Technilin, Poland. The line has a production capacity of about 1000kg/h and produces nonwovens made of natural fibres, glass fibres and polypropylene from 300 to 2400gsm for the automotive industry.

ANDRITZ has delivered the opening and blending equipment, an eXcelle card for a width of 2.5m, and a profile crosslapper in combination with ANDRITZ technology for pre-needling and needling of heavyweight nonwovens.

This order once again demonstrates the strong and long-term partnership between ANDRITZ and
Eco Technilin, which is already operating two ANDRITZ lines in France.

As a leading provider of natural fibre solutions, Eco Technilin is currently able to produce over 10 000t of nonwoven mats per year. The company has developed a range of materials for many applications in the transport industry (automotive, aircraft, buses, railway, etc.), the construction industry, furniture, geotextiles, and many more. It will substantially increase its production in the coming months.
