Needle Punch

Needle punching is a method of creating a non-woven fabric in which fibers are interlocked by punching barbed needles through a web of fibers. GMT’s non-woven production facilities include multiple needle punch lines capable of producing high strength metal fiber fabrics of varying densities that are ideal for filtration media, geo-textiles, and other industrial applications.

Airlay

Air-laying creates a web of randomly oriented fibers that can be bonded by sintering or adhering to a substrate. With this process GMT is able to produce metal fiber fabrics though a high range of basis weights and densities. This is also an ideal process for applications requiring a blend of materials. This process can be applied to a variety of fibers including ferrous and non-ferrous fibers such as bronze, copper, brass. This process is ideal for filtration and thermal transfer applications.

Cross Lap

GMT’s cross lap capability allows for the creation of uniform webs for needle punching. The bi-modal fiber orientation allows for the creation of fabrics with strength in the X, Y & Z directions. Additionally, the cross lapping process facilitates the creation of higher loft webs. Typical applications for this process are buffing and polishing, filtration.

Carding

We have the ability to card ferrous and non-ferrous metallic fibers, including bundle drawn fibers, as well as a blend of metal and synthetic.

Blending

We have the ability to card ferrous and non-ferrous metallic fibers, including bundle drawn fibers, as well as a blend of metal and synthetic.
