Technical Fibre Products has announced they will be doubling their current production capacity with the installation of a third manufacturing line.
With the company seeing an increasing demand for their nonwovens the line will be based on the current proprietary wet-laid technology, as used on the existing machines, to ensure the continued guarantee of the highest quality nonwovens. The new machine will be engineered to extend production capability beyond the current constraints; a key modification will be an increase in production width to over two metres.
The installation of the new line is expected to be complete in summer 2015 and represents the latest step in an accelerated programme of capacity and capability improvements for the company. This includes the installation of a state of the art nano-coating line at TFP’s US manufacturing facility and the commissioning of a high specification flat-bed laminator to enable in-house material conversion.
