There are 3 Carding lines (5 metre width) installed at G Wilson Fibres. This process is slowly pulls apart the nylon staple fibre in to its finer form of individual fibres itself. Some of their main customers include Burmatex Ltd and Heckmondwike FB Ltd who use this fibre into Carpet Tiles.
Laroche machines are similar to carding machines, except they are much more rigorous in the pulling apart of fibres such as Wool / Jute which are coarser fibres. Firstly, in our process, which you can see in this picture, fibres go through 2 guillotine cutters, then into a 4 cylinder drums which have tougher spike designs to pull down the most toughest fibres such as rags. Fibres recycled from these machines are sold into the non-woven industry, such as bedding & felt trade. G Wilson Fibres also has contracts with several carpet manufacturers in the UK recycling Wool Yarns which are then processed and spun back into a yarn then carpet.
