Description: Andritz has received an order from Saint-Gobain Adfors (Czech Republic) to supply a wetlaid line to be installed in their Litomyšl facility for the production of glass fiber mats. The Andritz neXline wetlaid line for glass fibers is designed for high production capacities and includes units for stock preparation, wetlaid forming, and binder application. With this line, Saint- Gobain will produce high-quality glass fiber mats for several markets.
