Lenzing Instruments to produce nonwoven webs, NOS 200
Jun '09
Lenzing Instruments GmbH & Co. KG, Austrian producer of testing equipment, and the German fibre institute FIBRE have entered into an agreement, in which Lenzing Instruments has taken over the rights for production and sales of a system for analysis of the fibre orientation of nonwoven webs, NOS 200.

The objective of the technology transfer is to make the new fibre analysis system accessible to nonwoven producers worldwide, thereby deriving advantage from Lenzing Instruments know-how on the field of image processing as well as their already existing network of contacts within the nonwovens industry and their distribution network.

NOS 200 is used for the inspection of nonwoven webs as well as for the process control of nonwoven production lines by means of fast CCD-cameras and image evaluation. The system gives real-time feedback on the fibre orientation of the nonwoven web, thereby gaining valuable information about the strength of the nonwoven material along and across the web.

The Austrian testing company Lenzing Instruments GmbH & Co. KG, offers a wide product range of quality control equipment, designed for the special needs of producers of filament, fibres, nonwovens and plastic films.

The company develops, manufactures and markets testing equipment for laboratory use, at-line use close by the production as well as online systems.

FIBRE, Faserinstitut Bremen is a scientific organisation at the University of Bremen, which performs R&D in the fields of testing and processing of fibres and the development of textile semi-products and fibre-reinforced composites. FIBRE works on fundamental and applied R&D in the fields of fibres, textiles and material science. In the field of fibres FIBRE is specialised on the testing of fibres, and checking, adapting and developing testing methods.
