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 porfessionals 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
Nonwoven Platform Manager
Graduated as a Textile Engineer 15 years ago, he began his career in Nylon filament melt spinning and then in Hygiene Spunmelt manufacturer. He joined CETI in 2010 and participated in the selection process of nonwovens equipment and was in charge of its implementation. Nowadays he manages as R&D Platform Manager both R&D private and consortium projects from design solutions to prototypes production in Drylaid and Spunlaid nonwovens.
