Go a step further with this 2-day advanced course to focus on understanding the various production parameters in nonwoven manufacturing, and how these can be used to modify product properties in the area of carding

This course is part of the Nonwovens Learning Cycle™, organised in collaboration with CETI (European Center for Innovative Textiles). The cycle offers an integrated approach to nonwovens from the basics, to intermediate, to advanced courses.

By attending this training, nonwovens professionals are invited to capitalize on CETI’s facilities which features a unique range of combinations of web-forming and bonding machinery.

Guillaume Cambronne
R&D Engineer
Graduated as Textile Engineer 5 years ago, he has integrated CETI in 2016. In the R&D Team, he is one of the specialists in filament melt spinning and Drylaid nonwovens. Nowadays he manages as R&D Engineer both R&D private and consortium projects from filaments and fibres to prototypes production in Drylaid nonwovens.
Simon Fremeaux
R&D Production Manager

Graduate Textile Engineer ENSAIT 17 years ago, he began its career in NYLSTAR, nylon filament producer and then joined DOUNOR, a Spunmelt manufacturer for hygiene products where he was in charge of the management of Technical Services. He joined then CETI in 2010 participating at the selection & implantation of nonwovens equipment. Now as technical director, with the help of his engineers and technicians team, he manages private and collaborative R&D projects to develop sustainable solutions from designing solutions to prototyping products at an industrial scale.
