Designs and Development: The Star Blade
The Star Blade is the newest felting needle design being offered to the nonwoven industry. And it is entirely a development of Foster Needle and is the property of only Foster Needle. The Star Blade is also offered in the Conical Blade style.

The Star Blade has itself been extremely successful in many different nonwoven applications. Some of the advantages actually achieved are:
In fabric applications such as geotextiles from staple fiber, geotextiles from spunbond, automotive interiors (headliners, parcel trays, etc.) and the Di-Lour and Random Velour fabrics, the Star Blade has proven itself a star performer.
