Started up in the Summer of 2004, this is the world's most advanced airlaid machine, designed for industry research, and the development of superior airlaid products of the future. With 5 next-generation Dan-Web airlaid forming heads, a series of ultra-flexible feedstream systems and an additional station for optional equipment, this 0.6 meter wide plant is capable of web weights of 15-1500+ gsm, up to 90% granule-containing webs.
The MTS Greyline Airlaid Facilities offer:
• R&D rental time
• Grade demonstration and optimization
• Short run and difficult grade production
• First commercialization run development time
• Market roll-out confidential production services
Based on the Dan-Web airlaid pilot plant machine, with two independently fed forming heads, this R&D system offers maximum grade flexibility. Operating at relatively slow speeds compared to commercial production lines, this pilot plant can make novel structures for tomorrow's products today. The plant can make unusually light or very heavy composite fabrics including those normally made on carding equipment. 100% synthetic fiber webs are possible at both high and low basis weights in uniformly blended composites or as layered webs.
