Andritz: new spunlace line to BCNonwovens
The international technology group Andritz AG, Graz/Austria, has received an order from BCNonwovens, Barcelona/Spain, to supply a neXline spunlace line as a turnkey project to meet growing needs from customers globally. The production line is scheduled for start-up early in 2021.
The line will be installed in a dedicated new building, meeting the highest hygiene and environmental standards. It will enable BCNonwovens to widen their product portfolio and process a broad range of raw materials, including sustainable fibers. This line will also be equipped with Andritz’s self-developed Metris UX platform, enabling predictive maintenance based on Andritz’s new Vibe sensors and the risk-based maintenance app. It will improve the line’s efficiency by reducing downtime.
