“Today companies recognize how critical the performance of extrusion through the spinneret capillaries is to the throughput and quality of the final product whether it is fiber, filament, spunbond nonwovens or meltblown nonwovens,” says Gerald Henrici, president of Aspex Inc. “Today production lines operate at much higher speeds with higher yields and more value added applications. The trend is for smaller capillaries in most production types along with an array of new polymers, additives, and recycled content making pack life and cleaning the packs a higher priority. When factories build new plants today, automatic spinneret inspection is now considered a necessity as manual inspection can not do the job properly.”
