HAZLETON, Pennsylvania , April 6, 2023 (press release) –

PFNonwovens, a long-time partner of A. Celli Nonwovens, signed the order acceptance for the end-of-line equipment commissioned on April 2022.

PFNonwovens, after six A. Celli lines acquired over the years for their Hazleton plant in Pennsylvania, signed the order acceptance for the complete end-of-line provided for the new Reicofil R5 line, following the successful start-up at the beginning of March.

A.Celli’s scope of supply for the project in object included 

  • E-WIND® WAVE axial/surface driven master roll winder with a design speed of 1100 mpm
  • Stock stations for the handling of Master Rolls 
  • E-WIND® SUPERSONIC off-line slitter rewinder, with a design speed of 1800 mpm
  • E-WIND® COREMATIC EVO for automatic shaft handling and core cutting
  • R-WAY® Automatic Packaging System with 2 robots, vertical and horizontal wrapper and label verification system

Shane Vincent, PFN Chief Commercial Officer, says: “We chose to rely again on A. Celli because of the high quality of their solutions and services. We currently have six other lines in Hazleton that are running A.Celli’s machinery and we appreciate the partnership for this project involving the new R5 line”.

Tonny de Beer, PFN Chief Product, Technology & Sustainability Officer, added: ”Slitting, winding, labeling and packaging have become such a critical part of nonwoven manufacturing operations. We produce high-loft and ultra-soft products on our new Line 9 and are also pushing the lower end of basis weights for other spunbond products. This range has put a very high demand on the various A. Celli components: foremost to ensure that the delicate properties are maintained throughout the process, and second that roll goods are achieved with the consistent high quality that our customers have come to expect from us.”
