CONTINIOUS PRESSING AND SCATTERING SOLUTIONS
SANDVIK TPS will use this year’s Techtextil to highlight its high productivity double belt press and scattering solutions for the manufacture and processing of technical textile and nonwoven products, and will demonstrate an operating powder scatterer.
SANDVIK TPS was formed following the merger of the composites arm of Sandvik Process Systems and scattering/double belt press equipment manufacturer TechnoPartner Samtronic. Its product ranges encompass every kind of double-belt press, from low-pressure laminators through to high-pressure steel belt presses, as well as precision scattering systems capable of handling fibres, powders, granules, pellets, adhesives and other materials.
All systems are designed on a modular basis, allowing a high degree of flexibility in terms of production flows. The company’s double belt press systems are based on a principle of multi-stage processing, enabling heating, reaction, pressing, cooling and tempering functions to be carried out on a single, continuous line. Both technologies – double belt presses and scatter coaters – can also be configured to meet specific throughput requirements, and can be combined in one efficient, in-line system for maximum productivity. The company also supplies up- and downstream equipment including unwinding/winding systems, in-line cutters, stacking units and conveyor lines.
This combination of technologies allows Sandvik TPS to offer tailored scattering, lamination, impregnation and consolidation process systems. Typical applications are the lamination or consolidation of different layers – with or without scattered materials (also including waste recycling) – to create nonwoven, technical textile or composite products of closely defined thickness and/or much higher density. Markets for these products include the automotive, construction and technical textile industries.
