Brückner at IDEA 2022

At the IDEA 2022 trade fair in Miami, March 28–31, 2022, Brückner presents new machine concepts and solutions for different applications at booth no. 4101.

Recently Brückner realized several installations in the field of highloft nonwovens and geotextiles. For the production of highloft nonwovens the double-belt thermofusion oven Supra-Flow BX is used. This oven system operates according to the air-through principle and can be perfectly adapted to the product requirements in terms of flow speed, flow direction and temperature on a field-by-field basis. Typical end products include mattresses, bedspreads, upholstery, wiping cloths, automotive components or insulating materials. The Supra-Flow BX can produce nonwovens up to a thickness of 280 mm and a basis weight of max. 8 kg/m². The available working widths vary between 2400 and 5200 mm at production speeds of up to 100 m/min.

For geotextile projects, the proven Power-Frame stenter is usually used, which impresses with its high uniformity in terms of temperature distribution as well as maximum productivity. In addition, the fabric can be stretched in a targeted manner by transporting it in the stenter chain. This has a con-trolled influence on fabric width, fiber orientation and fabric shrinkage. Working widths of up to over 7 meters are not uncommon with geotextile finishing systems. Depending on the required width, maxi-mum temperature, stretching forces and other process requirements, the optimum solution is found for each customer.

Fabric trials are also possible at any time in Brückner’s Technology Center in Leonberg, Germany.
