Bonding

Bonding is a broad term that can make the difference in the failure or success of a product line. With all of the options available, and the potential merging of several methods together, Allertex can assist in the development of efficient and unique techniques. Whether it’s Needle Punch, Thermobond, Chemical Bond, Laminating, Infra-Red, Radio Frequency, or any combination, Allertex offers the best equipment in the market.

Our Brands:

German engineering since 1986. With pride and an awareness of their responsibility, we can say that SCHOTT & MEISSNER is the global leader in manufacturing heat treatment and nonwoven bonding production lines. Their know-how, innovative strength and “German engineering” is in demand and prized on all continents. As experienced specialists in special-purpose engineering – from construction through to commissioning – they’ve generated exclusively customer-specific solutions at their premises in Blaufelden in the county of Hohenlohe since 1986.  Quality and reliability are values that they live and which are therefore naturally incorporated in their products. Heat treatment is at the heart of all SCHOTT & MEISSNER production lines. They harness hot air, contact heat and radiant heat to dry, melt or thermoset various materials in a continuous or discontinuous process. SCHOTT & MEISSNER specialize in nonwoven bonding production lines for thermal bonding using fibers and powders or with bonding agents for spray application, foam impregnation or liquid binder bonding.

TecTex/Automatec needle looms are used to mechanically bond carded webs, carded and cross lapped webs as well as fiber pads from any airlay system.  Normally the first machine in a needling process is a pre-needle loom.  This machine allows a lighter needling process that allows a good level of bonding, realizing a semi-finished or finished product. Should a better final product or faster production rate be necessary, then one or more needle looms would be added following the pre-needle loom.
Since TecTex acquired their Italian competitor Automatec, they now have the capability of offering two different lubrication technologies: oil and grease.  At present TecTex, with more than 500 needle looms in the field, is one of the world’s most important producers with regards to volume and quality.  In addition to being able to offer two styles of lubrication, they’re also capable of offering an elliptical motion loom called the Phoenix Tec.  This technology, developed by their engineers in 2007 for ITMA Munich, is now a significant part of their product range with respect to technology and value.  This horizontal systems advancing of the needle beam, accompanies the material to reduce the advance/stroke to zero.  With this technology, we’re able to reduce the risk of breaking needles in addition to giving the machine a faster entrance/exit speed.  This technology can be added on our range of needle looms to make all of them more innovative and efficient.
Siltex is an Italian company specialized in design and manufacturing of machinery and lines for coating, impregnating, laminating, and printing of technical textiles, nonwovens, and composites at a very competitive price. Our services include a full range of custom-engineered machinery designed to meet the most stringent industrial requirements.
Klieverik offers solutions via their rotary thermo-processing systems, also called heat presses or dwell calendars for applications such as:
  • Laminating and coating of (technical) textiles
  • Thermobonding of nonwovens
  • Production lines for thermoplastic composite prepregs
  • Fusing and laminating of carpet/artificial grass
Klieverik also offers an in-house Technicum (R&D) testing facility, whereby they can provide “proof of concept” samples for customers using their own materials.
RF Systems is the world leader in development, engineering, manufacturing and after-sale services related to radio frequency equipment. Their expertise is especially active in the design and manufacturing of dryers for the textile, nonwovens, and composites industries. RF Systems works in more than 50 countries and owns the widest portfolio of patents related to radio frequency.
