Technoplants presents a new range of machines which allow you to use your thermobonding line in a versatile way, producing vertically lapped as well as multilayer materials.
Vertical lapped materials are well known and appreciated by professionals of the insulation and padding industry because of their thermo-acoustic properties and compressive strength. Nevertheless the vertical lapping Technology has never achieved a major success due to its high initial cost.
Technoplants proposes a new layout of machines. It avoids the purchase of an entire and dedicated line complete of a card, a vertical lapper, a thermobonding oven followed by cutting and winding/stacking equipment.
To produce vertically lapped materials it is sufficient to add to your existing thermobonding line:
Insulation, waddings, paddings, filtration
The web turner receives the web coming from the carding machine, turns it at 90 degrees and conveys it.
The web entering the vertical lapper VL is fed by means of a cylinder with feeding (toothed) discs to a following cylinder with special forming discs, suitable to fold the web to become fiberwave material.
Using a single doffer carding machine it is possible to feed the web turner/vertical lapper, or alternatively to feed the pre-existing crosslapper.
With an airlay card, it is possible to install the vertical lapper between the airlay card itself and the thermobonding oven. An adjustable apron allows to feed the air-laid web to the vertical lapper, or directly into the double apron thermo-bonding oven.
Using a double doffer carding machine it is possible to produce multilayer materials, by feeding the web turner/vertical lapper and the crosslapper at the same time.
