Lenzing Instruments Nets Rights To Produce, Sell Testing Equipment

Austria-based Lenzing Instruments GmbH & Co. KG, a manufacturer of testing instruments, has entered into an agreement with the Germany-based FIBRE, Faserinstitut Bremen, at the University of Bremen, for the production and sale of the NOS 200 system used to analyze fiber orientation in a nonwoven web. The system inspects nonwoven webs, and using charge-coupled device cameras and image evaluation techniques gives real-time feedback that can be used for process control on a nonwoven production line. The technology now is available to nonwovens manufacturers worldwide through Lenzing's existing network of contacts in the nonwovens industry and its distribution network.

Lenzing also recently gained the exclusive global license from Switzerland-based textile machinery mechanical and electronic components producer Retech AG to sell its Prompt-ATQ online sensor for monitoring yarn tension during air texturizing manufacturing. The sensor alerts the operator to problems during production such as a dirty nozzle, defect yarn guides, missing fancy yarns and incorrect heater temperature so that corrections may be made immediately.

In other company news, Lenzing Instruments has assumed worldwide sales and service for the GE-TE-FLOW, a water permeability tester for geotextiles manufactured by Germany-based analytical systems producer Eco-Mess. Lenzing Instruments reports the fully automatic, computer-controlled instrument GE-TE-FLOW has been tested and proven in industrial production and public testing laboratories.
