ANDRITZ receives order for an elliptical cylinder pre-needler from Amarande, France

International technology Group ANDRITZ has received an order from Amarande SAS to supply an elliptical cylinder pre-needler for their plant in Lussac les Châteaux, France.

This machine will process shoddy and natural fibers for the production of heavy felts. Installation and start-up of the machine are scheduled for the second quarter of 2021. The new needlepunch production line with the high-performance ANDRITZ cylinder pre-needler will allow Amarande to offer high-quality products and thus open up new market opportunities.

ANDRITZ offers a complete range of elliptical cylinder pre-needlers: PA.169, PA.2000 and PA.3000 – serving different weights, widths, speeds and punching capacity. ANDRITZ cylinder pre-needlers have been produced since the 1960’s and have a large installed base worldwide. Over the years they have become a must for production of heavy products, special applications and also for demanding applications like automotive.



They are a key success factor in enabling the subsequent needling machines to process heavy batts smoothly and control the progressive draft through the consolidation process.
