Nonwoven fabric production has greatly increased in efficiency in recent years, resulting in a rise in quality that consumers can see and feel. A nonwoven fabric is a fabric-like material made from fibers bonded together by chemical, mechanical, heat, or solvent treatments. The term is used in the textile manufacturing industry to describe fabrics, such as felt, which are neither woven nor knitted. Nonwovens have become a popular alternative to polyurethane foam.

- Fiber & Bale Opening
- Weighing & Blending
