For the Nonwoven business unit of the Manmade Fibers segment of Oerlikon Management AG, Pfäffikon/Switzerland, the IDEA, which took place from March 25-28, 2019 in Miami Beach, FL/USA, kicked off with the signing of a contract. The customer, a renowned European meltblown specialist, invested in a 2-beam, stand-alone meltblown system from Oerlikons business unit Nonwoven, Neumünster/Germany, in order to meet its strongly increasing demand. In the future, the system will be deployed to manufacture meltblown nonwovens for various applications, especially from the filtration and wipes sector.
The market for meltblown nonwovens is expanding by an average of 6% per annum. The Oerlikon Nonwoven meltblown technology enables the cost-efficient manufacture of high-end meltblown and SMS (spunbond-meltblown-spunbond) products. Stand-alone mono-component and bi-component meltblown plants produce nonwovens for a whole range of filtration, insulation and sorption applications.
