As an engineering company for a wide range of nonwoven technologies, Oerlikon Neumag provides stand-alone machines and turnkey production lines for almost every type of nonwoven product. Oerlikon Neumag offers flexible, high-performance technologies for:
The Market for technical nonwovens is growing rapidly with over 9% per year. Increasing demand for these materials in emerging countries is generating tremendous opportunities for manufacturers. Advanced spunbonds meet the need for thinner, lighter and more efficient materials in such applications.
Thinking of manufacturing bitumen roofing substrates, roofing underlayment, or geotextiles? Drawing on many years of know-how, Oerlikon Neumag can supply you with a one step process from a single source – from the spinning plant all the way through to the spunbond roll-goods. The result is technology that is unsurpassed in terms of efficiency and productivity.
Oerlikon Neumag's Meltblown plants produce a wide variety of reliable, high-quality meltblown fabrics. To meet current various market requirements, the systems can process a variety of polymers and can manufacture to a range of fabric width.
Oerlikon Neumag’s Meltblown systems are utilized in two distinctly different production lines:
1. Stand-alone mono and bicomponent meltblown equipment for a variety of filtration, insulation and sorbents applications. In this case, a meltblown web is created independently, then is utilized alone or combined with additional media for the purpose of creating filtration, insulation or sorbent layers.
2. “Plug & Produce” inserts in existing and new outside vendor SXS plants for a variety of medical and hygiene applications. In this case, meltblown systems are inserted between an upstream and downstream spinning system (typically spunbond) for the purpose of creating a barrier or liquid impervious layer.
This “Plug & Produce” solution enables a cost-efficient upgrading of new or existing spunbond systems hence offering the nonwoven producers the benefit of access to markets with particularly high quality standards.
Airlaid products are characterised by the formation of fibrous webs using air as the transport medium from the raw material preparation to the web forming systems, and also for the actual web forming process.
Fibrous and powder material can be combined to produce single or multiple layer products, where each layer is specifically engineered for its application in the web, such as acquisition, distribution and absorption layers.
The Oerlikon Neumag Airlaid Technology ensures maximum flexibility and constant product quality. The core of this technology is the patented Fiber Forming System that enables the production of wide width webs based either on 100% pulp fibers or homogeneous mixtures of different fibers and powders.
