Oerlikon Textile is concentrating specifically on the following products of its five brands:
Oerlikon Barmag: ultimate quality texturing and spinning
The Remscheid/Germany-based market leader for filament machinery and systems boasts an extensive catalogue of technical highlights. By far the most important is the new automatic eAFK texturing machine that combines proven technology from previous models with a flexible, modular machine structure and offers increased productivity with reduced personnel requirements. The innovative WINGS spinning system is now also offered for FDY. And the new multi-threaded automatic winding head for high-strength special yarns means considerably less energy consumption and space utilisation, as well as reduced investment and maintenance costs.
Oerlikon Schlafhorst: innovations for more economically efficient spinning and yarn packages
The developments of this market and innovation leader for ring and rotor spinning technology and yarn packages focus on current market themes. Zinser ring spinning machines increase raw material efficiency and process reliability with ImpactFX compact technology. The fully or semi-automatic Autocoro has set the standard for automation in rotor spinning systems for some time. The Autoconer winding machine also offers various automation levels to further reduce personnel requirements.
Oerlikon Neumag: focusing on perfect BCF yarns and synthetic staple fibres
The S+ generation of machines is the flagship of this leading supplier in the manufacture of highly developed BCF carpet yarns. The BCF machine offers all the benefits of previous technologies as well as significantly higher processing speed and performance. And in the production of synthetic staple fibres, the 300 tonnes-per-day unit sets the benchmark in the manufacture of polyester staple fibres with the largest capacity for an individual line anywhere in the world.
Oerlikon Saurer: always a step ahead of the field in embroidery and twisting
The global market leader in embroidery and twisting is responding to the market's demand for ultimate yarn quality, production flexibility and application versatility. The Volkmann FT is the two-for-one twisting machine of the future for staple fibre yarns. The Volkmann carpet cabler reduces operating costs in the carpet yarn sector. With the Volkmann GT-series ring spinning machines, technical applications are now possible as well as up-twisting glass filaments. The Allma CC3 (also a two-for-one machine) and CC4 cabling machines are a byword for quality, economic efficiency and low energy consumption. And the Epoca 6 generation offers perfection and maximum productivity in shuttle embroidery.
