A major theme to be highlighted by Fibre Extrusion Technology Ltd. (FET), Leeds/UK, at the Techtextil in Frankfurt/Germany is sustainability. The company’s range of laboratory and pilot extrusion lines is ideally suited for both process and end-product development of sustainable materials.
The laboratory and pilot melt spinning equipment of FET is available for a vast range of applications, such as precursor materials used in high value technical textiles, sportswear, medical devices and specialized novel fibers from exotic and difficult to process polymers. Where melt spinning solutions are not suitable, FET provides a viable alternative with pilot and small-scale production wet spinning systems.
At the Techtextil, the company will showcase its more recent laboratory scale spunbond system, which enables client development of nonwovens in a number of formats and polymers. FET already has a number of spunbond systems in the field, including composite systems which utilize both spunbond and meltspun functions.
The company has successfully processed almost 30 different polymer types in multifilament, monofilament and nonwovens formats, collaborating with specialist companies worldwide to promote greater sustainability through innovative manufacturing processes.
