The combination of flexibility, high line speed and process efficiency is mandatory for state-of-the-art carding technology. Autefa offers fully integrated turnkey lines including all components from fiber opening to web drafting.
On the basis of the FOR technology, Autefa offers with the Injection Card and the Webmaster WM 2+2, two carding systems for the nonwovens industry with specific advantages:
The traditional mechanical principle using workers and strippers has been replaced by an aerodynamic principle in the Injection Card. The fibers are taken off the worker rollers by an aerodynamic effect generated by specifically shaped devices. This avoids considerable mechanical stress on the fibers which usually applies to traditional carding systems with stripper rollers.
Webmaster WM 2+2
The Webmaster WM 2+2 Card is designed for high productivity and top quality nonwoven materials.
A system of two doffers between the two main cylinders of the WM 2+2 Card provides an optimal strip-off at the first cylinder and allows the division of the fiber flow in the intermediate area providing improved blending and fiber distribution on the second cylinder.
In addition, the use of two doffers in the intermediate section increases the carding power of the mechanic with the effect of about two additional worker rollers compared to a traditional card.
