ACA Systems Oy has successfully delivered the first Permi HP air permeability analyzer for forming fabrics online quality control application in airlaid nonwoven process. Idea is to be able to predict the life-time and change time of the forming fabric. New forming fabric starts slowly to loose its air permeability characteristics when continuously used in airlaid nonwoven process. No such reliable analysis has been available so far.
Permi HP is a new online design for high air permeability materials such as various nonwovens and glassfiber nets. Latest delivery for glassfiber nets is Owens Corning USA.
