The spunlace sector is still challenging for product manufacturers. AUTEFA Solutions offers complete lines for the production of direct and crosslapped spunlace products. The web forming process, consisting of the Injection Card and Crosslapper Topliner CL 4006 CL, is the key for high and consistent nonwoven fabric quality. AUTEFA Solutions advanced Spunlace technology with Hydroentanglement Machine V- Jet Futura and Square Drum Dryer SQV offers a quick return on investments.

The V- Jet FUTURA technology takes place featuring 30% less electrical energy consumption due to the unique V-Jet-construction with significantly reduced distance between the nozzle and the fabric to be bonded. The Square Drum Dryer SQ-V combines the advantage in drying efficiency of a horizontal belt dryer with the space advantage of a drum dryer, resulting in increased drying length with small footprint. 30% savings of thermal energy can be achieved compared to known drying technology used in the spunlace process.

Fiber opening and blending, Injection card, Hydroentanglement Machine V- Jet Futura and Square Drum Dryer SQV are available.
