Fibre Extrusion Technology of Leeds, England has installed a new FET-100 Series laboratory melt spinning system for continuous filament yarn applications at the Center for Textile in Bandung, Indonesia.

A ceremony on March 18th commemorated the event, bringing together industrial leaders, including representatives from the Indonesia Textile Association and the Indonesia Synthetic Fiber Manufacturer Association, with Agus Gumiwang Kartasasmita, the country’s Minister of Industry. FET representatives and the innovation agency BSP were also in attendance.

The Center for Textile – Balai Besar Tekstils – carries out research, development, cooperation, testing, certification and competency development for the country’s textile sector.

The FET-100 system will play a vital role in driving technological innovation in the Indonesian textile industry. The nation’s fibre manufacturers now have access to advanced melt spinning facilities for developing and testing their own novel fibres for global applications. This multi-polymer system can produce both mono and bi-component formats.

The opening ceremony was streamed online for textile businesses to view during Covid-restricted times and was covered on local television.
