Nonwoven Solutions, at INDEX 2017 in Geneva

Following the slogan for this year’s INDEX, “Connecting you with nonwoven solutions”, company Autefa Solutions is ready to take up the challenge.

Technology: Basis for resource and energy saving

Frankfurt and Shanghai, 14th October 2016 – On the occasion of ITMA ASIA + CITME 2016, taking place end of October in Shanghai, VDMA member companies spoke about their technologies and concepts in order to add content to the sometimes loosely used watchword sustainability. Their best practice examples deal with technologies that help to save resources and energy.

Strauch (Press Officer VDMA Textile Machinery): Mr. Imhof, Autefa solutions covers automation, bale packing, carding as well as nonwoven technologies. What are the key drivers for your customers to invest into an energy saving technology?

Imhof (CEO Autefa Solutions): Two reasons drive our customer’s decision for such an investment: Number one are the rules and regulations and number two is the economy. Especially in China, the entrepreneur’s decisions are influenced by the 5-year plan which aims at increasing the renewable energy mix by 28 percent and, at the same time, reducing the coal energy by 10 percent. Gas will be doubled. Within the next 10 years China wants to reduce CO2 exhaust by 40 percent. This worldwide trend will drive nonwovens and textile manufacturers to invest. Reducing the drying energy with our new SquareDrum Spunlace Dryer or the V-Jet Hydroentangeling technology has proven that with an average line capacity more than 250,000 EUR/year energy cost can be saved.
