Competence in Technical Textiles

Technical textiles conquer new fields of applications, replace conventional materials and take over the function as a reinforcing material in composite materials in a wide variety of applications in the areas of mobility, energy, construction and leisure. With our innovative machine portfolio, we are an important technology and innovation driver for composites and lightweight construction.

But we also ensure efficient production in classic applications such as advertising banners and other coating substrates or geotextiles for road construction.
