To further enlarge the production capacity of Foss Manufacturing Company LLC (Foss Floors), Rome, GA/USA, a specialist in needled carpeting, has ordered a new production line from nonwovens machinery manufacturer DiloGroup, Eberbach/Germany.
DiloGroup has engineered this latest high-tech production system together with Foss, tailor-made for their needs. It will have a large production capacity at high fiber throughput rates, comprising fully automatic fiber opening and blending from Dilo Temafa, carding from Dilo Spinnbau in a wide working width, high-speed crosslapping as well as pre and finish needling, designed for final product widths over 6 m. The specialty Di-Loop machine with high-speed feature in a working width of 6.5 m will complete this production plant for the Di-Loop carpet sector. In recent years, Foss Floors has become a major player in this sector of Di-Loop carpeting to include structured surfaces in rib and patterned quality. Mainly because of high quality requirements for the carpet product and a wide range of modern design patterns, needlefelt floor covering appeals greatly to architects and contractors for homes and commercial buildings. The range of unique patterns and colors is characterized by its timeless designs. The aim of gaining highly efficient additional capacity corresponds to a high demand for this particular carpeting.
