Optimizing Production Processes of Nonwovens with FIDYST

Spunbond, meltblown, and airlay processes can be optimized by using FIDYST, the Fiber Dynamics Simulation Tool developed by the Department Transport Processes (TV) of the Fraunhofer ITWM in Kaiserslautern – a software that simulates fibers driven by air and their contacts with machinery parts of the plant. By evaluating the CV […]
