Exactly one year ago, Trützschler Nonwovens & Man-Made Fibers GmbH took on board the employees and expertise of Bastian Wickeltechnik GmbH. The well-known name for high-quality fully automatic unwinders, winders and short roll winders, as well as rewinding and cutting systems, lives on in the portfolio of the Trützschler Group through the Bastian product brand.
In early 2013, the first Trützschler winder, a specially designed high-performance winder for up to 5 mm strength nonwoven composite films, went into production in Austria. The high degree of automation in this fully automatic short roll winder with an integrated core loader and masking unit allows short cycle times for changing rolls, even in both winding directions. As with nearly all winders in the Bastian product line, the execution of this process requires no preparation at the roll core for setting up materials. For the coming months more film winders are lined up for delivery. At the same time, the company is continually expanding its winding solutions business for the nonwovens sector. A well-known Asian nonwovens producer in the coming months will receive the Bastian models of the new generation BWT 201-05 for its complete line.
The company was able to successfully continue the Bastian winder business while seamlessly integrating it into existing operations. The Bastian experts provide their highly specialised knowledge of product and process quality from their design and sales office in Bielefeld. Assembly is handled by a specialised team of Trützschler Nonwovens & Man-Made Fibers employees.
