Airlaid Technology

Anpap Airlaid Process is an efficient & reliable way to produce high quality Airlaid paper without compromises. Efficient production and quick grade change gives you the flexibility to respond to the customer needs instantly. Quick start up means higher production efficiency, less waste, lower production down times and higher ROI.

Anpap’s machinery is designed & built in Finland, to ensure maximum quality & customer satisfaction.

Pulp defiberizing / Anpap Hammermill

This is where the Airlaid process begins. Efficient & nit free defiberisation is essential when creating high quality Airlaid products. Anpap’s direct drive hammermills are industrial heavy duty machines, designed to defiberize pulp for nit free Airlaid products. Our Hammermills are durable and easy to use equipment with low running costs & high ROI.

Anpap Drum Forming

After the pulp is defiberized, it is then led to the forming section. The forming section is the place where the most critical phase happens, the pulp is formed to a web. This is where the Anpap’s “supercharged” Forming Head steps in.

The Anpap Forming Head is an easy-to-use, high quality machine designed for air laying. 100% pulp, 100% synthetic fibers or any mix of natural & synthetic fibers (up to 12 mm length) can be used.

One of the special features of Anpap’s Forming is the closed circulation through secondary air uniformer, which gives the Forming Head unmatched performance & efficiency compared to others. Our cross profile adjusting system ensures the formation of a homogeneous web with excellent cross profile. The industrial stainless steel construction and devotion to details make it last a life time. Anpap forming can also be combined with any other nonwoven process.


Anpap’s transfer section is designed for high speed web transfer and durability. The transfer section can be equipped with one or two embossing calenders. With double embossing calenders, it is easy to switch paper quality/pattern on the fly, without any production down time.


The binding/spray stations at the drying wire enables the customer to use adhesives, such as latex for binding purposes. The adhesive dosing system and special spray bars with changeable jets allows the customer to control accurately the amount of adhesive used.

Drying & Curing

Drying is the most important thing after the Forming process. Without good drying systems, it is impossible to achieve good product properties. Anpap’s through air drying system is the state of the art solution for the customer, who demands the best. The superior cross temperature profile and temperature control ensures that the web is evenly dried and the product properties doesn’t differ.

Cooling & Finishing

Thermobonded products needs to be cooled down after the curing process to stop the bonding. The cooling & finishing can be done with either calendering, water mist or air.

Slitting & Winding

Reliable slitting & winding devices are essential in keeping the process running smoothly even with high production speeds. We have learned from our past experiences that everything runs smoothly, only when slitting & winding is done with high quality products. Anpap’s experienced co-operation partners ensures that our customers are provided with the state of the art slitting & winding solutions.


The final product, Airlaid paper is a valuable asset for both the producer and the customer. The paper must be firmly protected from dirt, moisture and other harmful substances and objects that might harm the product. High level co-operation partners provides Anpap with the latest design packing/wrapping devices, which makes sure that the product is safe.

Process air systems

Our unique experience in process air systems gives us the edge in designing state of the art Airlaid systems. The equipment we use in our process air systems, such as process air fans, comes from high quality manufacturers. We provide our customers only with the best tailored solutions available.

Dust filtration

A deep understanding in pulp fibers and their characteristics is needed when creating dust filtration for pulp fibers. Small design errors can occur as huge problems in the process and high down time. Anpap’s +30 years of experience in dust control has taught us deep understanding, how to make dust filtration work properly in process industry applications. In our opinion, the dust filtration works, if only a few people know it even exists.

Wire cleaning

Advanced wire cleaning systems are designed to keep the wires/fabrics clean. By keeping the wire clean, higher production rate and higher wire life time can be achieved. Higher wire life time means less down time for the production and better ROI.
