Geo-nonwovens are an established part of modern building technology. Nonwovens are used for building roads and railways to reinforce, drain, filter, separate and as an erosion protection. In agricultural applications e.g., geo-nonwovens are used as large-area coverings for the harvest of turnips as well as other field crops.
Menzel's fully automatic rising roll batcher was delivered to an Austrian customer and is designed for a width of 5.600 mm and a production speed of up to 80 m/min. The reels with a diameter of 600 mm can optionally be cut or wound in narrow widths lanes.
According to the thickness of the material the cycle time amounts 1 - 3 min per roll. Furthermore, the process control facilitates guarantee high flexibility even when the product is changed. The achievable high efficiency is determined by the upstream extruder range for the spunbound nonstop operation.
