NCRC to upgrade web forming equipment.

The Nonwovens Cooperative Research Center (NCRC) at North Carolina State University, Raleigh, NC, recently received a $135,000 contribution from Cotton, Inc., also based in Raleigh, to be used to upgrade its carded web forming facility. The upgrade involves the refurbishing and rearranging of existing equipment as well as the purchasing and custom building of new pieces of machinery. The upgrade was undertaken by Sigma, Simpsonville, SC.

The new system consists of a 24-inch double cylinder/double doffer garnett, a roller-top card with six pairs of worker/strippers, a revolving flat-top card, a crosslapper and a tacking bar. The roller-top card is also equipped with a randomizing roller; the feed, lickerin, cylinder and the worker/stripper pairs are all independently driven. The crosslapper can yield web widths in the range of 20-40 inches.
