In this paper we improve and investigate a stochastic model and its associated Fokker-Planck equation for the lay-down of fibers on a conveyor belt in the production process of nonwoven materials which has been developed in [2]. The model is based on a stochastic differential equation taking into account the motion of the fiber under the influence of turbulence. In the present paper we remove an obvious drawback of the model, namely the non-differentiability of the paths of the process. We develop a model with smoother trajectories and investigate the relations between the different models looking at different scalings and diffusion approximations. Moreover, we compare the numerical results to simulations of the full physical process.
