Bally Ribbon introduces film infusion

Milliken launches textiles website

Thrace LINQ completes expansion

Bally Ribbon Mills (BRM) is introducing film
infusion capabilities for 3D woven joints.
During the film infusion process, a frozen
sheet or film of resin is infused onto the
custom 3D woven joint, saving customers the
trouble of infusing the resin. BRM's advanced
products group has developed technologies
to fabricate 3D woven structures such as "Pi
- π," double "T," "H," and other complex net
shapes. BRM uses the film infusion process
to infuse a variety of resins to these complex
3D woven shapes.

Milliken has launched textiles.milliken.com,
unifying the manufacturer's diverse textiles
portfolio. Under the overarching performance
and protective textiles division, Milliken
serves a range of industries, including apparel,
building and infrastructure, hospitality and
military. The website presents the Milliken
textiles portfolio in a customer-centric manner,
refines the division's marketplace presence and
highlights the extensive history of Milliken
textiles. Customers may navigate by market
or search key performance characteristics to
find solutions that best fit their needs.

Thrace LINQ has completed the installation
of a new Andritz® needlepunch nonwoven
line. The Thrace Group invested more than
$9 million in the project to satisfy the growing
demand for its high-performance nonwoven
fabrics in North America. The state-of-theart needlepunch nonwoven line is designed
to produce world-class quality fabrics for
geosynthetics, automotive and floor covering
markets. An in-line tenter oven and calender,
along with finished-width capability beyond
20 feet, are just a few of the features the
equipment offers.
