HDK Commissions Erko Trützschler Carding Line

HDK Industries, Inc., a Rogersville, Tenn.-based supplier of nonwovens and laminates, has commissioned a manufacturing line including fiber-opening, blending and carding equipment provided by Germany-based Trützschler Group's Erko Trützschler and Charlotte-based American Truetzschler Inc. subsidiaries, represented by Greenville-based distributor Batson Group Inc.

According to HDK, the new line, which includes three 3.5-meter cards and provides flexibility to process multliple fibers, will significantly expand the company's production capacity as well as enable it to increase the range of basis weights processed for an expanded product offering.

"This new technology offers the means to advance our product performance while maintaining competitive product costs," said Dave Lunceford, president, HDK Industries. "HDK's goal is to supply our customers with the products that allow them to lead their respective segments. To accomplish, we felt that we had to install production technology that surpassed existing industry sstandards."
