Professional die body cleaning carried out by Oerlikon Neumag restores items virtually to their original state.

In order to ensure superlative meltblown-machine performance and nonwovens’ quality, Customer Service of Oerlikon Neumag offers regular inspection and cleaning of the spinning body, either by means of a service contract or simply as a service-on-demand. Die body maintenance can either be carried out at the customer site or at the Oerlikon Neumag assembly facilities in Neumünster.

“During service visits, we repeatedly encounter die bodies that are heavily contaminated or that have been scratched as a result of customers’ cleaning attempts. It is for this reason that we offer die body cleaning as a qualified manufacturer service. We have the experience, the know-how and the technical capacities to carry out this work both professionally and swiftly,” said Michael Schwarz, Technical Sales Manager for Modification Nonwoven at Oerlikon Neumag.

According to the company, professional cleaning takes approximately one week depending on the general conditions. It systematically ensures that system downtimes are kept to an absolute minimum and is correspondingly constantly optimizing its processes and offerings.

"To this end, we recommend – for example – that customers acquire an additional die body, which they are able to swiftly exchange themselves," stated Tilmann Seidel, Head of Customer Services at Oerlikon Neumag. "The removed die body can then be sent to Neumünster for cleaning, which can be carried out without time constraints. This investment generally pays dividends over several years with customers with high quality demands and for whom on-site cleaning would – due to the distances involved – be too expensive or time-consuming."
