eLearning from TexED contains in-depth information about all aspects of textile processing. Each module contains

detailed still images, illustrations and animations which give individuals a more thorough understanding of the material.

The carefully crafted illustrations and animations provide a closer look at machinery than traditional photography and

videography safely allowing the isolation of individual steps of complex processes.

Narration is paired with detailed imagery, explaining each facet of the various processes. This combination of visual and

auditory information yields higher material retention rates and a better understanding of the material overall. And, because

eLearning is completely online, students are able to watch sections multiple times in order to absorb more difficult

concepts.

In addition to the courses provided through the eLearning series, an online glossary is available for quick reference at

any time. eLearning from TexED is a comprehensive, cost-effective way to provide textile training to your employees or to

provide supplemental study materials for students in your classes.

Spunmelt and Hydroentangling

Nonwovens Lab

The Nonwovens Institute at North Carolina State University

has created a state-of the-art Melt Spinning and

Hydroentangling facility on Centennial Campus at NC State

University. This multi-purpose installation incorporates

commercial technologies from Nordson Fiber Systems

(NFS) and Hills Inc. The .5 meter wide line includes twobeam

bicomponent polymer SpunMelt processes with both

Spunbond and Meltblown capabilities. The Spunbond

system is capable of spinning bicomponent fibers in sheath/

core, side-by-side, segmented pie, islands in the sea (up

to 360 islands) and tipped trilobal configurations. The

Meltblown equipment is capable of producing fibers in

sheath/core and side-by-side configurations.

In November 2011 NWI began installing a one meter

wide Reifenhauser REICOFIL (R4) meltblown line which is

expected to be available for trials in February 2012.

Spunbond and/or Meltblown webs can be calender

bonded at production speeds and throughputs using

diamond embossed or smooth calender pattern. The lab

also has the capability to bypass the calender and bond

by hydroentangling. Hydroentanglement bonding takes

place on an Aquajet line from Fleissner, Inc. The 600-mm

wide line includes a belt and drum backside entangling

process with five high pressure manifolds. Hydroentangling

pressures up to 230 bar (3330 psi) are available. Belts of

different construction (weave, mesh) are used to optimize

the hydroentangling process and achieve desired fabric

properties. In addition to interchangeable belts, fitted belts

can be placed on the hydroentangling drum to optimize

fabric performance and appearance.

Design for Six Sigma

3.5 day course

March 6-9, 2012

About

Design for Six Sigma (DFSS) is the logical next

step for most companies seeking to design new

products and services to achieve six sigma

level performance. DFSS is the traditional

new product development process with best

practice Six Sigma tools to support the design

of high quality, customer-focused, products

and services. Following the DFSS process and

applying many Six Sigma tools to support each

phase will improve your existing new product

development process.

This course provides a basis for reviewing

your organization’s current new product/

development process using the Design for

Six Sigma framework. This course gives

the participant an overview of the DFSS

process and primary tools with a hands-on

lab to demonstrate the application of the

tools, focusing on driving innovation in an

organization using DFSS methodology and

understanding how to overcome challenges to

successful implementation.

Each participant will conduct a gap analysis of

their organization’s new product development

process.

Design and Innovation with

Computer Simulation

3.5 day course

July 10-13, 2012

About

Complex processes are difficult to analyze

because direct experimentation with them is

not feasible or practical. Traditional quality

improvement methods such as Design of

Experiments (DOE) and statistical process

control are limited due to the complexity of the

process and limited visualization of bottlenecks

and throughput. Computer simulation is a tool

that can combat those deficiencies by creating

a detailed understanding of how a process is

configured or product is produced. It provides

a laboratory for developing current “As Is”

models and transition to “Future State” models

without costly capital investments. Simulation

adds value to your projects by accurately

modeling complex transactional, health care,

supply chain, and manufacturing environments,

testing operational alternatives, and quantifying

potential results and performance expectations

in chaotic processes, where high variability is

present.

Textile Technology Certifcate Program

The Textile Technology Certificate program has two new

graduates. On September 20, 2011, Dr. A. Blanton Godfrey

presented certificates to the following recipients, pictured

left to right -

Ralph Oskwarek, Medline Industries

Iris Wang, Brentano, Inc.

Wang, Vice President of Design and Marketing at

Brentano, Inc. says, “As an interior textile designer with

an art background, I had previously concentrated on the

aesthetics of design, making things beautiful. Learning

the technology involved has awakened me to the fact that

design is not limited to its sensual effects. My knowledge

in textile technology is now one of my tools for creativity. I

can create textiles that meet the needs of real consumers

in both pragmatic and sometimes problem-solving ways.

I have learned a great deal from the NC State College of

Textiles and hope to come back to learn more. “

The Textile Technology Certificate program requires that

participants take five textile professional development

courses in a three-year period. These courses are

selected from a list of core and elective courses, allowing

participants to tailor the program to fit their needs.

To date, TexED has awarded certificates to thirteen

recipients. To find out more:
