GKD Process Belt Solutions at the INDEX 2014
Thanks to their highly versatile properties, nonwovens rank among the world's most wanted materials. By 2017, an annual growth in demand of 5.4 percent to a production volume of about nine million tons is anticipated. Because the trend is for high-performance nonwovens to become thinner and lighter, the square meterage of processed nonwoven fabrics can be expected to increase by a much greater factor. As this demand grows, so do the challenges facing manufacturing and processing companies. Rising energy and processing costs call for innovative and customised solutions to ensure a sustainable increase in efficiency.
At the world’s leading nonwovens expo, INDEX, which runs from 8 to 11 April 2014 in Geneva, GKD – GEBR. KUFFERATH AG (GKD) will be presenting tomorrow’s woven process belt solutions for the manufacture of nonwovens. At the GKD stand, the focus will be on innovative belt coatings that substantially prolong cleaning cycles and on ultra-flexible, self-tracking woven metal V-crimp type belts for high-speed applications in the hygiene sector.
