Needlepunch 101 Available Online 

We are pleased to announce that Don Hindman, of Nonwoven Tools LLC, has launched his second online training course, “Nonwovens 101”. The course is $69.

Don has been active in engineering and maintenance in the nonwovens industry since 1973. He was involved in the start-up of eight nonwoven companies. Don has designed and installed many nonwoven production lines using various bonding methods.

For the last fifteen years he has primarily been involved with companies using the needlepunch process.

Drawing on his experience, Don notes that many nonwoven companies spend next to nothing to educate their employees while expecting them to produce quality fabric on expensive machinery.

For less than the cost of a box of 1000 needles, “Needlepunch 101” can provide an employee with an extensive understanding of the needlepunch process.

Benefits of the course:
  • The training is self paced and can be done on any device that connects to the internet.
  • Anyone that can use the internet can take this course.
  • A student is given 45 days to complete the course and can review everything in the course during that time period.
  • If desired, management can be kept abreast of the student’s progress.
  • The student has the opportunity to comment at the bottom of each lesson.
  • If used consistently in a plant with each employee, this course will insure that each employee receives exactly the same training.
  • No one has to be pulled from their job to teach.

Here is how the course works:
  • Each chapter has a video of Don teaching the chapter content.
  • Links to related materials are provided.
  • Pictures of equipment are included.
  • A heavy emphasis is placed on terms related to needlepunching.
  • Additional videos teach some important skills.

“Needlepunch 101” is appropriate for any production employee operating a needlepunch line; mechanics working on needling equipment; line supervisors; lab personnel and needling department employees.
