Lenzing Instruments Offers FIBRE, Retech, Eco-Mess Equipment

Austria-based testing instrument producer Lenzing Instruments GmbH & Co. KG has assumed the
rights to produce and sell the NOS 200 system used to analyze fiber orientation in a nonwoven web.
The technology — developed by FIBRE, Faserinstitut Bremen at the University of Bremen,
Germany  — now is available to nonwovens manufacturers worldwide through Lenzing’s network of
nonwovens industry contacts and its distribution network.

Lenzing also has an exclusive global license to sell Switzerland-based Retech AG’s Prompt-ATQ
online sensor for monitoring yarn tension during air texturizing.

In addition, the company has assumed global sales and service rights for Germany-based
Eco-Mess’s GE-TE-FLOW water permeability tester for geotextiles.
