FET: new laboratory spinning system for driving technological innovations
In Indonesia at the Center for Textile, Bandung, a new FET-100 Series Laboratory Melt Spinning System for continuous filament yarn applications has been installed by the supplier of extrusion technology Fibre Extrusion Technology Ltd. (FET), Leeds/UK.
The Center for Textile, Balai Besar Tekstils of Bandung, has the task of carrying out research, development, cooperation, testing, certification and competency development of the textile sector, under the control of the Ministry of Industry (Kementerian Perindustrian). The Ministry has a stated objective that Indonesia becomes a “Resilient Industrial Country” - strong, competitive and based on innovation and technology.
The FET-100 system will play a vital role in driving technological innovation in the Indonesian textile industry. The nation’s fiber manufacturers now have access to advanced melt spinning facilities for developing and testing their own novel fibers for global applications. This laboratory melt spinning system is multi-polymer capable and can produce both mono and bi-component formats.
