Thermal Bonded

This cohesion process uses the thermoplastic properties of synthetic fibers to form bonds under controlled heat conditions. This versatile process offers improved material properties, lower production costs and increased line production speeds. The process speed and requirement for surface quality make automated inspection essential for quality control.

Several methods of thermal bonding exist, with efficient bonding depending on factors including fabric thickness and the applied temperature. Excessive or insufficient melting may create surface flaws. In calendar bonding, heated rollers are used, and any roller imperfections may also introduce flaws.

To maintain efficient, cost-effective production speeds, an automated monitoring solution is required. The strength and performance of the fabric frequently depends upon a high-quality material surface, so defect detection supported by intelligent classification software is vital.
