With its new Fibre Development Centre now fully operational in Leeds, UK, Fibre Extrusion Technology (FET) of Leeds, UK, will promote its latest meltblown and spunbond technologies at INDEX 23 in Geneva from 18-21 April,

The company is welcoming interested parties to explore options at its new centre equipped with state-of-the-art facilities, including an enhanced laboratory for client testing and product development.

FET designs, develops and manufactures extrusion equipment for a wide range of high value textile material applications worldwide, with nonwovens playing an ever-increasing role.

Central to FET’s success has been its ability to provide customers with unrivalled knowledge and expertise in research and production techniques. The new Fibre Development Centre will further improve this service. Clients frequently spend several days on site participating in development trials and technical sales meetings, so the new centre is designed to make their stay even more efficient and comfortable.

Complementing FET’s highly successful meltblown technology, the more recent spunbond range provides opportunities for the scaled development of new nonwoven fabrics based on a wide range of fibres and polymers, including bicomponents.

 “FET has long been a leading exponent of sustainability in fibre technology and the company’s commitment to extending its range of systems that enable it is clearly illustrated in our message at INDEX 23” says FET managing director Richard Slack. “This year we are celebrating our 25th anniversary since incorporation and look forward to meeting customers old and new at the exhibition in Geneva, where we can discuss your nonwoven technology requirements in detail.”
