That’s been one of my mantras - focus and simplicity. Simple can be harder than complex: You have to work hard to get your thinking clean to make it simple. But it’s worth it in the end because once you get there, you can move mountains.
— Steve Jobs



     Hartge Development has been designing, building and improving nonwoven systems for 25+ years, working with the most demanding customers in the industry.  Focused on Spunbonding – a delicate ballet of interacting forces between air, fibers and structures - we take the philosophy of looking at the whole instead of isolating individual components.  The bigger picture is always more difficult to understand, but we believe serious change in any endeavour can only occur when the whole process is re-invented from the inside out.


    By Simplifying the main goal of spinning and lay down, we have managed to create an ideal process while decreasing the number and complexity of components that touch the fibers and process - the only serious development in spunbonding since the 1980’s


    The “Impingement Spinning” process has fewer precision surfaces and refined airflow.  This allows us to employ highly turbulent mixing in the heart of the process – the polar opposite to all conventional machines that try to same turbulence with highly engineered capital intensive systems.  It reduces risk by decreasing capital costs.  It reduces process drift because it has fewer components.  It reduces energy consumption by as much as 50%.  It reduces operational staff up to 80%.
