Oerlikon Barmag: Intelligent solutions for spinning and texturing

From polymer through to the textured package, the Remscheid-based world market leader in spinning and texturing of manmade yarns offers future-oriented technology for the quality- and cost-conscious yarn manufacturer. In the market for Fully Drawn Yarn (FDY), an innovative new FDY technology promises top yarn quality with significantly reduced conversion costs at the same time.

Alongside this, multi-end system concepts for industrial yarn will also be making headlines: made-to-measure spinning plant components interacting with the quenching unit, godets and winder generate consistently high yarn quality for fine industrial yarns of up to 660 dtex (LDI) and coarse filaments of up to 6600 dtex per bobbin (HDI).

In the case of DTY (Draw Textured Yarn), Oerlikon Barmag is showing new features for the eFK texturing machine and inviting guests to participate in daily tours to Oerlikon Textile’s biggest and most modern production plant in Suzhou. All machine cross-sections currently available can be viewed there. The highlight will be a production run on a 288-position eFK machine kitted out with the latest options. This presentation can also be followed live via video link on the exhibition stand.
