Modeling, Simulation and Optimization of Viscoelastic Filaments for Spinning Processes

Fraunhofer ITWM is the leading institute in modeling and simulation of fiber spinning processes. Process simulation and design require an appropriate material modeling that covers the full range from the viscous jet behavior at the nozzle to the elastic behavior of the final fiber. Different industrial examples show the usage of such simulations to improve different types of spinning processes.

New technologies for handling and drying of polyester polymers

Polyester nonwoven fabric requires steady and reliable processes throughout the entire manufacturing cycle, starting from the polymer preparation. The new series of Piovan dryers -Genesys- ensure the perfect drying of the material, by keeping constant all the process parameters and boosting the energy efficiency. These innovative dryers are able to adjust automatically the functioning mode of the drying system, thus achieving the most powerful performance.

Honoring nonwoven performance with the right hotmelt base-polymer

Brand owners for hygiene products have been challenging formulators to meet increasingly demanding performance requirements of hotmelt construction adhesives without adding costs or complexities. Eastman has developed a proprietary process to manufacture an innovative class of olefin polymers meeting these demands. The Aerafin range of polymers enables adhesive manufacturers to formulate extremely stable, very low odor construction adhesives with excellent processing robustness, making them the ideal choice for hygiene applications.

The future of hands-free round wipes packaging

Traditionally, separate machines carry out packaging process operations involved in downstream wipes packaging - from wipes loading, filling and dosing, to weight checking, sealing, capping & QC. Typically, running this type of line takes up space, is expensive and requires 5-15 operators to run. But what if you could carry out all the above processes with just ONE machine and still achieve speeds of up to 35ppm? This presentation will explore the very latest monoblock solutions from global brand Shemesh Automation for round wipes packaging. These new all-in-one solutions save space, money & resources by carrying out all of these packaging process operations with one compact automated machine.

Innovative AOI systems unite opposites: local defect inspection + simultaneous properties monitoring

Producers of nonwovens and technical textiles wish to combine these opposites to lower production cost, save expensive line space, improve material quality, and reduce material consumption. If the cameras of existing local defect inspection systems could be used to also measure overall material properties, e.g. basis weight, formation or coating thickness, this would add significant material & process quality information.

Simulation-based analysis and optimization of spin packs

Simulation-based design is used to analyze and optimize the polymer flow within spin packs. Common applications are preventing polymer degradation by eliminating dead spaces from the design, reducing the total pressure drop or establishing a uniform quality for all fiber positions. Furthermore, the approach is very successful for the upscaling of existing designs or when switching from one polymer to another with different rheological properties.

How to evaluate odours?

Odour is a growing topic in the Nonwoven industry. Typical questions are: - Does my product have odour reducing capabilities? - How can I claim those? - Where is the malodour coming from when I open the package? The presentation is an introduction to standardized odour measurement methodologies which help to answer odorous questions. Sampling and analysis techniques are explained and a case study is presented.

Diaper Recycling Technology

Next generation Diaper Recycling Technology – Why saving the environment is all about making money

With billions of diaper rejects annually going to landfill not only damaging the environment but also causing large financial losses for the hygiene industry hygiene producers, until today, hygiene producers have had limited options. Incumbent recycling technology require considerable amounts of energy to operate whilst materials streams extracted are not 100% pure and SAP is damaged reducing absorbent performance. Latest generation recycling technology operates with 1/10th of the energy and is capable to extract pure material streams with minimal damage allowing up to 87% of the raw material $$$ investment to be recovered.

The Impact of Global Agricultural Practices Related to Cotton on the Environment: 2015 LCA Results

Cotton, one of the world’s oldest fibers has clothed and fed the world’s population for thousands of years. Today, this fiber which is grown on 3% of the land used for agriculture, satisfies 28% of the global demand for textile fibers. As an agricultural crop, it is important to understand cotton’s impact on the environment. Cotton Incorporated, five years ago, undertook a global Life Cycle Assessment of cotton. In 2015, that ground breaking work was updated. The 2015 LCA includes three phases: growing of cotton, processing into woven and knitted textiles and converting into apparel, and consumer use through to the end of the product life. This presentation, targeted for the nonwovens industry, will focus on the important sustainability measurements most closely related to agriculture. Data was collected in China, India, US and Australia, approximately 70% of global production.

Energy Free HVAC - Fact or Fiction?

Whether your hygiene factor is running with or without HVAC you are faced with operational challenges Sites with HVAC have invested large capital sums in HVAC tonnage and operate with consuming vast amounts of energy with associated significant on-going energy costs. Sites without HVAC have employees operating in hot conditions reducing worker efficiency and causing high employee turn-over not to mention limited process efficiencies due to changing air moisture levels.

Amphibia - the new core concept

TWE Group developed and patented a radical new process to create an all in one core concept for the disposable hygiene market, called Amphibia. This patented technology allows us to dose a pre-determined amount of SAP within a smart, multi-layered nonwoven without the use of adhesive. The SAP is encapsulated within the fine structure of the nonwoven and so secured in place, however has the freedom to swell and absorb liquid. This concept allows customers to produce all kinds of absorbent products without the use of fluff pulp.
