“We have been the technology partners of the technical textiles and nonwoven producers for already a long time. Our main objectives remain to help them design new marketable products and produce them in a reliable and cost efficient way. We also work hard on raw material, energy and water savings to reduce the environmental footprint” states Evelyne CHOLET, Secretary General of the French Association of Textile Machinery Manufacturers (UCMTF).

French textile machinery manufacturers are often world leaders on their specialties. Their strategy is particularly fitted to the nonwovens and technical textiles sectors in which the machinery manufacturers are really integrated. France is the 6th machinery exporter, the total turnover is over 1 billion Euros (1.3 billion US$).

For the long fibre spinning industry: new techniques to improve dramatically the quality standards, the operating and maintenance costs, and on line quality controls. The innovating range includes the design of complete lines.

For the twisting and texturing of yarns: the opportunity to develop high-tech yarns for technical applications. Heat setting processes and new functionalities to yarns. Jacquard machines and dobbies developments: spectacular increases in the speed of the production processes together with higher quality and more reliability.

Finishing: consistency improvements together with energy and water savings. Recycling the textile materials at the end of their life cycle and transform them into new products, being environmentally friendly, is also an issue on which the French machinery manufacturers are among world leaders.

“For all these sectors, we are more and more offering tailor made solutions designed with our customers and partners to enable these customers to introduce new products with high added value and compete successfully worldwide. We protect our intellectual property rights both for ourselves and our customers” concludes Evelyne CHOLET.

NSC FIBRE to YARN Hall 3.0, booth D64

NSC promotes spinning lines for processing long staple fibres for technical applications. Long staple yarns can be spun in various blends from any high performance fibres: natural fibres (wool, silk, flax, ramie, hemp…) and man-made fibres (acrylic, PVA high tenacity, aramid…). Long staple fabrics are appreciated for their strength, flexibility, cleanliness, evenness, traditional look and soft touch.

NSC FIBRE to YARN proposes 3 processes to produce long staple top of technical fibres: the carding, stretch breaking and crush cutting. These 3 ways are composed of different machines: cards, converters, pin drafters, blenders, defelters, combers and rubbing, roving and spinning frames basedon 4 trademarks (Cognetex, San’t Andrea Novara, N.Schlumberger, and Seydel) under one banner NSC FIBRE to YARN.
