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.

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.

Process Engineers, Product Managers, Raw Materials Managers, R&D Managers, QA managers. Such people are likely involved with Producers, Suppliers, Converters and Retailers within the industry.
A course based on the combination of classroom training, information exchange and interaction with the R&D engineer and technicians. Use of different support: video, pictures, samples, pilot equipment.
The course language is exclusively English.
Each course is limited to 8 delegates for optimal interaction between the participants and the CETI staff during the course and the workshop on the platform in operation.
In order to fully benefit from this course it is recommended to have a good understanding of nonwovens manufacturing. It is recommended to attend the Intermediate Nonwovens training course before joining any of the advanced courses.
