- Steve Brown, Partner and General Manager, NonWoven Solutions describing the companies experience with Tidland when replacing crush cutting with shear in the converting of thick nonwoven material."Previously we had difficulty getting a clean cut with 70 grams per square meter material and had to add a supplemental divider after the score cutter roll to break the occasional few fibers that were not cut cleanly. Obviously now this is resolved. Tidland simply gives us better slitting."
