Boost your developments with our Pilot Line
Beaulieu’s pilot manufacturing line allows you to test the fibres much faster and without risk, so you can get ahead of your competitors. Use our pilot line to speed up your product development or make your manufacturing process more efficient.
Our pilot line offers you utmost flexibility to produce samples, without the typical constraints imposed by industrial production lines. It can replicate any type of staple fibre spinning technology, using different types of polymers and additives, and different types of cross sections.
Work with the experts
We invite you to work together closely with our Pilot Line and R&D teams, so you can take advantage of Beaulieu’s years of built up expertise on bonding fibres, high-tenacity fibres, automotive composites, hygiene fibres and much more.
What you can test:
• Different raw materials and cross section types
• Staple and short-cut fibres
• Additives or functionalities in MONO and BICO
• Shrinkage reduction
• Customised BICO fibres
• Composite performance
• And much more
