As the leading trade fair in the nonwovens sector, INDEX impressively reflected the dynamics of the increasingly demanding nonwovens market. Indeed, more visitors and exhibitors than ever before were keen to engage in intensive exchanges over four days at this international specialist forum in Geneva. Visitors from the sector showed particular interest in the newly developed woven belts from GKD – GEBR. KUFFERATH AG for forming, binding and drying nonwovens. The CONDUCTIVE® 7690 forming belt, as well as coated glass hybrid fabric for use in single-belt and double-belt dryers were at the heart of the mesh and fabric specialist’s trade fair appearance. Since these products have already proven themselves in real-world applications at well-known reference customers, numerous trade fair visitors took the opportunity to engage in detailed discussions. Filter media made of metallic mesh for polymer filtration, as well as the new in-house spiral fabric manufacturing segment, also serve to underline the bandwidth of GKD’s comprehensive expertise in the field of nonwovens. The global market leader for technical fabrics further underlined its appeal with a new stand design that brought together the various areas of application.
