The provider of specialist process and cutting services, Bindatex Ltd. Bolton/UK, can achieve the very low slitting widths that can be required by the nonwovens industry (20 mm, lower on request) and at very large diameters. It also provides a solution to the common problem within the industry of uneven tension in winding the roll and enables material salvage. Bindatex is increasing its capacity for slitting nonwovens while maintaining quick turn-around times.
The expansion in capacity comes after the successful completion of projects for several UK PPE manufacturers and other companies in medical technology such as filter disks for ventilators, and across other nonwovens applications ranging from cosmetics to civil engineering.
Bindatex can supply in high production volumes or low development amounts for proto typing. The company is experienced in slitting and sheeting a variety of hard to cut materials and also has extensive experience in cutting nonwovens into discs shapes for filter applications. The company is ISO9001 approved and does not impose a minimum order.
At the end of 2020, Bindatex secured a grant from Innovate UK from the Sustainable Innovation Fund to support a 6-month R&D project to further develop and upscale their operations.
