Recycled PET polyester from used plastic drink bottles is used exclusively for production. As a result, 18,000 tonnes of plastic are recycled annually, which equate to approximately two billion plastic bottles. The basic materials are used in needle-punch machinery to make materials for floorings.
Forbo Movement Systems supplies processing belts, which are used in the various manufacturing applications, for this machinery.
Recently, this has also included processing belts for conveying the nonwovens behind the crosslapper. The crosslapper’s task is to fold the nonwoven in a particular way, to position or stack it before it’s transferred to the processing belt.
