FET a leading supplier of laboratory and pilot melt spinning systems is looking forward to 2023 with a record order book. The company’s newly opened Fibre Development Centre features over £1.5 million investment in customer laboratory systems that will further enable fiber trials and product R&D. 3 new polymer types were developed with clients in 2022 and several more are lined up in 2023, which is expected to bring the total of different polymer types to more than 40 in multifilament, monofilament and nonwovens formats.
Fibre Extrusion Technology Ltd. (FET), Leeds/UK, will be exhibiting at 2 major exhibitions in 2023: Index 23, the world’s leading nonwovens show at Geneva/Switzerland in April; and ITMA, Milan/Italy, the world’s largest international textile and garment technology exhibition in June.
Prestigious new projects during 2022 included a multifilament melt spinning line for Senbis Polymer Innovations, Emmen/Netherlands, enabling the development of textile fibers from recycled polymers or biopolymers; a FET-200Lab wet spinning system at the University of Manchester/UK which will play a major part in advanced materials research in collaboration with the renowned Henry Royce Institute; and a FET-103 monofilament line for Rheon Labs, London/UK, to help develop a hyper viscoelastic fiber which displays high strain-rate sensitive properties.
