Oerlikon is a top tier supplier for meltblown systems. The Oerlikon meltblown process is characterized by its constant melt pressure distribution and simultaneously consistent dwell time across the entire width of the spinning beam, which in turn ensures particularly homogeneous nonwoven properties and basis weights. Furthermore, the innovative guidance and distribution of the process air outside the coat-hanger distributor offered by the Oerlikon technology prevents so-called hotspots. As a result, even extremely sensitive raw materials can be reliably processed into high-quality nonwoven media.
The Oerlikon meltblown systems are utilized in two distinctly different production lines:
- Stand-alone mono and bicomponent meltblown equipment for a variety of filtration, insulation and sorbents applications.
- “Plug & Produce” inserts in existing and new outside vendor SXS plants for a variety of medical and hygiene applications. In this case, meltblown systems are inserted between an upstream and downstream spinning system (typically spunbond) for the purpose of creating a barrier or liquid impervious layer.
