NSC introduces the family of Axcess
technologies to the nonwoven industry
NSC Nonwovens has
recently presented Axcess range of nonwoven machinery
engineered for medium capacity (tonnage) markets, whilst
maintaining the quality standards of the high capacity
Excelle nonwoven lines.
Axcess offers our customers who do not require the productive
capacities provided with our Excelle production lines an
alternative to obtain drylaid nonwoven lines where lower
production capacities and lower capital investment costs are
better suited to their corporate strategies.
NSC launched the Axcess A.30 new range of needlepunch line at
the recent Asia ITMA Expo in Shanghai, China where the reception
was extremely positive, resulting in the sale of multiple lines
with many other projects under consideration.
This strategy move for NSC nonwoven arrives at a particulary
favourable time, since the vast majority of the nonwoven
producers is eagerly looking for niche markets with added
value. The market trend is clearly showing increasing
investments worldwide using the drylaid process, and in
particular crosslaid Needlepunching. With the technologies now
available at NSC nonwovens providing cost effective solutions,
it perfectly meets the industry expectation, with special focus
for geotextile, filtration and automotive end applications.

NSC nonwoven provides solutions to generate unique fabrics
properties with its Excelle ProDyn® solutions. It will shortly
be enhanced by the IsoProDyn® system.
The ability to provide alternative lines which enables the
customer to purchase the needed capacity at a price point
relative to their productive needs without sacrificing
engineering quality enables manufacturers in both niche markets
and emerging markets to expand or enter into needlepunch
nonwovens with economies of scale relative to their needs.
The Axcess range of nonwoven technologies is designed for not
only for the needlepunch industry but also for alternative
bonding technologies where direct web manufacturing lines enable
the production of different nonwoven fabrics such as Spunlace
wipes with Rieter Perfojet Avantage technology, or
with other bonding technologies such as thermal, chemical or
laminating for composites nonwoven applications.
The Axcess range of nonwoven technologies includes web
forming carding systems, batt forming crosslapping with profile
capability, batt drafting and felt drafters, needle looms and
winding systems. The engineering of the Axcess range of
machinery is based on the proven technologies of Asselin-Thibeau,
and therefore offers its customers a choice of manufacturing
capacities tailored to meet their investment and market demands.
