EcoWipes invests in Voith-Trützschler’s WLS-technology

EcoWipes is a young, innovative company that has become a leading manufacturer and converter of private label products for the hydro-entangled nonwoven segment. The firm, which is located to the north of Warsaw, was established in 2009 and has now already ordered its third nonwovens production line.

EcoWipes has a strong focus on innovation and sustainability and intensively monitors local and global market trends. In view of the rising consumer interest in biodegradable materials, EcoWipes opt for partners Trützschler Nonwovens and Voith to supply the new production line. The progressive and sustainable WLS (wet-laid spunlacing) concept developed by the two companies for manufacturing wet-laid hydroentangled nonwovens is a perfect fit for the EcoWipes product range. It is ideally suited for producing flushable wipes but also recyclable and biodegradable products. These materials meet consumer preferences for greater sustainability at the end of the product cycle.

The sale of this fifth WLS facility is testimony to the successful collaboration between Trützschler Nonwovens and Voith as established technology leaders in the wet-laid hydroentangled nonwoven segment.

The new production line at EcoWipes is a flexible wet-dry nonwoven facility. Voith is supplying the HydroFormer, one of the main components of the new line. The HydroFormer concept builds on Voith’s long experience in the paper and pulp industry. With HydroFormer technology the suspension is highly diluted, so nonwovens can be produced entirely from cellulose, a renewable and cost-effective raw material.

Trützschler Nonwovens is not just responsible for the hydroentangling, drying and reeling up, but will also supply its latest high-speed card. This flexible configuration enables EcoWipes to produce a broad product range of wet-laid/spunlaced or carded/spunlaced nonwovens.

Due to the strong demand for BRÜCKNER lines in the last years, an enlargement of the production capacity was indispensable for the German technology supplier. There were no possibilities for expansion at the previous production site in Tittmoning (Bavaria), so that the company came to the decision to build a completely new site near Tittmoning, at a distance of a few kilometers from the previous site. The company management never even thought of moving the production abroad since by doing so the company would lose invaluable employees and thus decades of experience and know-how. The ground breaking in September 2016 was followed by a one-year construction period. In November 2017 BRÜCKNER began step by step to move the production to the new production site. In spring 2018 the moving will be terminated. 

The new plant comprises 25.000 square meters of construction hall area and is provided with the latest production technology. Since this is a completely new building, all optimization potentials regarding material flow and work place design could be used. The increasing sizes and weights of the machinery components were considered in the selection of the height of the hall and the type of the installed crane systems. Thus, crane systems for the lifting of weights up to 20 tons and crane hooks in a height of 12 m are available for the final assembly. 

The increasing sales success during the last years and the systematic expansion of BRÜCKNER’s nonwovens sector had a significant influence on the decision to build this new site. 

In 2017, BRÜCKNER sold in the TECHNO-LINE NONWOVENS product line several lines for the production of geo-nonwovens, light nonwovens consolidated with bonding agents for the medical sector, voluminous thermo-fusioned filler nonwovens for the furniture industry and thermo-fusion ovens for ADL, topsheet and backsheet for the hygienics industry. 

Particularly in the field of hygienic nonwovens, a trend shows towards products of a better quality with a smoother hand and of more uniform texture. With the development of a new generation of air-through oven, BRÜCKNER created the preconditions to provide customers all over the world with the technology to produce these high quality end products. The successful sales of the new oven generation SUPRA-FLOW BA to renowned nonwovens producers all over the world confirms once again the innovation power of BRÜCKNER. Particular attention was given to a gentle transport of the not yet bonded web, a particularly uniform air flow through the web as well as a constant temperature distribution across the complete working width. Important findings from very different thermal treatment systems of related BRÜCKNER product lines could be integrated into the construction design. 

The new oven type is characterized among other advantages by the following constructive features: 

  • gentle fabric transport
  • minimum thermal energy required
  • high flow uniformity
  • constant temperature distribution across the working width
  • best possible accessibility of the oven chambers
  • easy to maintain
  • flow-optimized air circulation
  • use of belts with special coating with good detaching characteristics
  • working widths of up to 4200 mm in the standard design
  • production speeds up to 200 m/min 

The continuously increasing number of inquiries for this new type of oven shows that the extensive development efforts were definitely justified and that the new belt oven corresponds absolutely to the market requirements. 

BRÜCKNER’s nonwovens experts will with great pleasure present in a personal meeting the benefits of the SUPRA-FLOW BA air-through oven in detail to interested customers.

Successful conference entitled „Additive manufacturing for the textile industry“ held at KARL MAYER in Obertshausen, on 11. January 2018

Successful conference entitled „Additive manufacturing for the textile industry“ held at KARL MAYER in Obertshausen, on 11. January 2018

The organizer of this event was the Textile Research Institute Thüringen-Vogtland e.V. (TITV), the cooperation partner was KARL MAYER. With this meeting the two innovation drivers of the textile industry have really hit the mark. „We want to create the exchange between the two worlds, namely between the additive manufacture as a young discipline of production and the textile sector as an industrial branch with a long tradition“, explained KARL MAYER Product Manager, Michael Kieren, in the run-up to this event. Together with his team, he organized a programme that attracted roughly 100 specialists from different fields to Obertshausen. The invited guests included manufacturers of textiles for the automotive, sports and medical sectors, finishing professionals and yarn manufacturers as well as experts from science and research. The interest in the meeting exceeded all expectations. „I am very surprised by the high response to our conference and by the wide range of different areas from which our guests come. Both aspects show the importance of this topic, and the significance of events of this kind“, said Arno Gärtner, KARL MAYER’s CEO, during the conference. Dr. Uwe Möhring, Managing Director of TITV, also expressed his satisfaction with the course of the meeting. „I think it’s great that so many people have come , and that so many different discussions arise, especially in view of the high event density at the beginning of the year. The contributions with real topics but also the size and mix of the audience encourage a successful exchange.“

The agenda included lectures held by 3D-printer manufacturers as well as by companies that have already been working with additive manufacturing methods; they informed about their experiences with various possibilities but also about still existing limitations. Two experts presented first combinations of textile and 3D-print. Besides, a service provider in this business also took the floor: Tatcraft from Frankfurt presented with Maker Space its capacities for 3D-print, wood working, water jet cutting and other technologies to experiment and explore different possibilities without major investments.


Industrial mechanic Tobias Hierl on his first weeks of training.

On 1 September, Tobias has started his apprenticeship as an industrial mechanic for machinery and plant engineering at our company. After three months, he has gained an impression of its future profession and already learned a lot.

Definitely craft!

It was always a given for me that I am going to learn a technical profession. Both my father and brother work and manufacture timber products, I wanted to do the same with metal. When our instructor Mr. Beil presented the apprenticeship as an industrial mechanics in the course of an orientation day, I was sure: this is it! The field of duty sounded pretty interesting. So I submitted my application to Mahlo and started here in September after finishing my ‘Mittlere Reife’.   

Let’s get started

In the training workshop, all of us apprentices were allowed to work hands-on right from the beginning. For example, we have learned to cut workpieces to size, file and mill them. You should therefore have a certain degree of skill if you decide to become an industrial mechanic. Equally important are commitment and stamina. Filing for a longer stretch is more exhausting than you might think. When milling, you have to really concentrate to get the desired outcome. But this is also what I really enjoy. That and of course the companionship with my colleagues. We are six first-year industrial trainees and we get all along really well. In addition to that, you can always ask the older apprentices for help. The same goes for our instructors. No matter if it is about praxis or study matter.

Setting goals

Of course I sometimes think about what I want to do after my apprenticeship. I definitely want to educate myself further. Mahlo offers several options here. Prerequisite for that is a successful training as well as a good degree from vocational school. So far, vocational school is very diverse, interesting and funny. I especially enjoy the subjects Maintenance, Components and Production Technology. You just know, you later will use what you have learned now. That’s probably why it is more interesting.

I for sure am looking forward to the coming years of my apprenticeship and am curious what will happen next.   




Después del éxito obtenido en Ámsterdam y Nueva York, todo el proyecto “Denim Gallery” lleva a la última etapa de Combiatex 2018, la feria de la innovación y creatividad en los sectores textil y de la moda más importante de América Latina.

Tonello Denim Gallery en Colombiatex 2018

Grace Warland, Matias Sandoval, Serena Conti, Su Kim y Jon Rouleau, Mika Mitarai, Juan Manuel Gomez, Ilinca Trif, Stefan Vella, y Greta Giannini: estos son los nombres de los 10 talentos creativos que libremente han expresado sus interpretaciones personales de los conceptos de Realidad y Visión utilizando las últimas tecnologías Tonello: del Láser Blaze al ECOfree 2, del Bohemia al NoStone®, del Robot Ecospray al Core.

El Denim literalmente se ha transformado en una tela sobre la cual expresar sueños y visiones, conceptos y estilos, para dar vida a creaciones impredecibles, evocativas y matéricas.

Hoy nos enorgullece llevar el resultado de este “concurso” también a Colombiatex, para continuar enfatizando  la visión de la empresa, cada vez menos productora de máquinas y cada vez más orientada al diálogo con marcas, para “inspirar” al mundo textil con soluciones de acabado que den sustancia técnica al genio de los diseñadores.

Y para destacar  el valor de la investigación, una actividad cada vez más estratégica para Tonello, de la cual nacen propuestas que apuntan a una nueva forma de concebir la prenda y los procesos de producción: la primera siempre más saludable para el usuario final, los segundos siempre más sostenibles.


After Amsterdam, Dhaka, Munich and New York, the Tonello Denim Gallery lands next month in Medellín. From January 23 to 25, join us at Colombiatex de las Américas and discover the collection celebrating the limitless potential of jeans, combining art and fashion, painting and performance, in a kaleidoscopic mix of contemporary languages.

Grace Warland, Matias Sandoval, Serena Conti, Su Kim and Jon Rouleau, Mika Mitarai, Juan Manuel Gomez, Ilinca Trif, Stefan Vella, and Greta Giannini: these are the names of the artists-designers who have freely expressed their “emotions”. In the first part of the project, they expressed cathartic representations of the reality we live in. The second part is devoted to the vision of possible worlds. With their works the designers wanted to write their hopes and fears on denim, but also to weave dreams of a better future, made up of connections between people, a relaunching of deep and human values, as the only antidote to a reality that offers more and more disturbing prospects. And Tonello reinterprets these answers, taking full advantage of the latest technologies: from Laser Blaze to ECOfree 2, from Bohemia to NoStone®, from Ecospray to Core.

The winner of the contest had already been selected during the “Inspiring” event by a jury that included some of the most important denim makers in the world. On the first day of New York Denim Days, Serena Conti was acclaimed as the first place winner, followed by Matias Sandoval, second, and Mika Mitarai, third. As the winner, Serena won an entire week of “creative freedom” at our Creative Area, where she could develop her own collection, experimenting without limits.
