VDMA ‘Webtalks’ to focus on nonwoven PPE technologies


Posted June 18, 2020


FRANKFURT, Germany – On June 22, the Germany-based textile machinery association VDMA will begin a series of textile machinery “Webtalks.”


In the first edition, experts from Oerlikon Manmade Fibers, Mahlo and Nanoval will present technologies for the production of melt-blown nonwovens for respiratory protection masks (FFP masks and surgical masks).


After the presentations, the experts will be available to answer participants' questions.


Participation is free of charge. Interested persons can register here.


The following topics will be covered in the first two-hour session:


Leading meltblown technology
Dr. Ingo Mählmann, vice president of Sales and Marketing, Oerlikon Nonwoven


Oerlikon Nonwoven meltblown technology, which can also be used to produce nonwovens for protective masks, is recognized in the market as the technically most efficient method of producing high-separation filter media from plastic fibers. Most of the protective mask capacities available in Europe to date are produced on Oerlikon Nonwoven equipment.


Online Quality Control Solutions for Meltblown Nonwoven
Matthias Wulbeck, area sales manager, Mahlo


Medical protective masks require a high level of quality to ensure the function for the user. With a wide range of measurement and control technology MAHLO can support manufacturers in monitoring and controlling important parameters such as the basis weight and air permeability during the production process.


The NANOVAL Process for an Alternative to the conventional meltblown: “A springing tiger or a damp squib”
Christian Gerking, managing director, Nanoval


NANOVAL developed a completely new approach for the spinning of meltblown-kond nonwovens. The nonwoven material of the NANOVAL process has interesting properties: A lower pressure loss, a higher strength and a higher elongation. Furthermore, the production capacity is higher and the specific energy consumption is lower.  


Moderator: Boris Abadjieff, VDMA Textile Machinery Association
