BCF plant business still on the road to success

(PresseBox) (Neumuenster, Chemnitz, ) At this year’s Domotex Asia from 25 – 27 March, Oer-likon Neumag and Oerlikon Barmag will be presenting their solutions for an efficient carpet production. In Hall W3, booth F23, the focus of the information will be on the 3-end BCF plant S+ from Oerlikon Neumag, as well as on the new tape yarn solution for carpet backings, EvoTape with WinTape, from Oerlikon Barmag.

The Asian market is still regarded as a small market with development potential due to its classical consumer behavior on the carpet sector, especially for export. The market is very much focused on the production of contractual goods. There seems to be a change coming. „Our customers are always looking for innovations and new products“, explains Alfred Czaplinski, Sales Manager BCF. „Due to the high flexibility of our S+, we can practically cover every application“.

Oerlikon Neumag focusses on the S+

The 3-end S+ not only convinces due to the efficiency of 99% and therefore raw material cost savings. It also covers a wide spectrum of producible total titers of 600 – 4000 dtex. Furthermore, all polymers from polyester, via polypropylene up to polyamide 6, can be processed on the multipolymer plants without conversions.

Since its introduction to the market in 2011, the S+ is the most-sold BCF plant and produces economical, high-quality BCF yarns worldwide.

Efficient combination of Oerlikon Barmag: EvoTape and WinTape

Focussing on the new developments for tape yarn production for carpet backing, introduced at last year’s Plastics Trade Fair, we have a significant increase in profitability: Oerlikon Barmag has achieved a quantum leap with up to 50% more output in comparison with usual market standard plants. The revolutionized process of the new EvoTape tape plant, in connection with the also newly developed, automatic winding system WinTape, enables this increase in efficiency.

Domotex Hanover was a great success

Oerlikon Neumag was very satisfied during the four lively fair days in Hanover mid January. After two very successful years in the BCF business, the market leader furthermore records very good transac-tions. Three contracts were successfully concluded during the Domotex.

The BCF plants S+ und Sytec One are in high demand. Whereas the S+ convinces for commercial applications, the Sytec One is especially suitable for demanding production processes. “With the S+ and Sytec One, we have an excellent position on the BCF market. We can practically cover all cus-tomer requests with these two plants”, summarized Martin Rademacher, Sales Director BCF.
