Nonwovens Furniture
With high resistance to tearing and abrasion, nonwoven materials are ideal for furnishings, and are of particular use as less-seen components such as linings and spring covers.

Nonwoven materials are easier to use in furniture construction than traditional fabrics, since they tend to be hard-wearing and can be cut, sawn, glued and laminated without fraying.

Offering the capability of fire-retardant fibers and surface embossing for patterns, nonwovens are chiefly used as reverse fabrics on cushions, covers for springs, pull strips, inside linings and dust covers.

Nonwoven manufacturers around the world depend upon AMETEK Surface Vision for inspection systems that protect their fabric quality. Reliable web monitoring ensures defects are found and classified in real-time, reducing waste product and maximizing yield.
  • Applications +

    • Nonwovens Chemical Bonded
      Chemical Bonded

      Binders can be laid onto the web surface to join the fibers together chemically. This may result in surface blemishes, and so needs careful inspection.

    • Nonwovens Composites

      Composite nonwovens combine a mixture of fibers and plastics to form a specialized fabric. This requires surface monitoring to ensure the different components form a uniform surface.

    • Nonwovens Thermal Bonded
      Thermal Bonded

      Webs of synthetic fibers are bonded together by heat, often applied by heated rolling. An automated inspection system will detect any surface defects from this production process.

    • Nonwovens  Thru-air Bonded
      Thru-air Bonded

      Fibers can be spun into a web by directed, heated air through a continuous process. Manual inspection can be difficult at this stage, so an accurate automated solution is required.
