DM&E began with tow cutters.  As we developed our relationships with the fiber manufacturers we applied our engineering and process expertise to tow crimpers.  DM&E has divided its effort into two directions.  First, we manufacture small to medium size crimpers for  processing tow from 30,000 d [33 ktext] to 1,500,000 d [151 ktex].

Second, Neumag and Fleissner manufacture excellent examples of larger tow crimpers. DM&E is committed to assist owners of larger crimpers in maintaining high standards and superior production.  Rather than compete we have chosen to repair and rebuild these larger crimpers.
