Textile machinery manufacturer Truetzschler recently opened a new customer and technology centre for nonwovens in Egelsbach near Frankfurt am Main to push technological innovation in nonwovens products and related manufacturing processes. The technology centre presents two complete production lines: an inline carding line with thermobonding and spunlacing equipment and a spunlace-crosslapper line in an industrial working width. Both lines feature a wide range of possible variations and options to realise innovative end products.
The family-owned Truetzschler Group was established in 1888 and is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of textile machinery. The key factors responsible for its growth include technological innovation, the quality of its machines and its strong customer orientation. Its investment in the new nonwovens customer and technology centre is the logical consequence to further develop its leadership in technology and quality in this segment.
