THRACE LINQ, a 100% subsidiary of the THRACE PLASTICS GROUP, just placed an order for a new needling line to increase its production capacity aiming at further expanding in the US market.

Early 2007, THRACE PLASTICS, commissioned successfully a non-woven geotextile line supplied by NSC nonwoven (Asselin-Thibeau) for its facilities in Greece.

The 2007 needle punching line at the Thrace Greek facilities in Xanthi, Northern Greece has been demonstrating the ability of the NSC's equipment to make outstanding fabrics in strength performances and weight uniformity.

The 2008 THRACE LINQ new line will have a capacity in excess of 7000 tons/year and will feature innovations like Excelle card, ProDyn, Ouat!sys. Further innovation developments will also be part of the delivery.

These technologies allow the production of light and medium nonwoven fabrics at outstanding high production speeds, with excellent tensile strength properties where conventional technologies would compromise fabric evenness and productivity.

The NSC equipment will feature a highly elaborated SCADA system, with the “Expert Supervision” version. Together with the unique design of the Excelle card, it will enable THRACE LINQ to shift quickly from product to product increasing the productivity of the whole line as well as ensuring a consistent fabric quality.
