With the Staple Force S 1000 from Oerlikon Neumag, bicomponent fibres can now also be produced in the compact spinning process.

A press release from the company said that it has many years of experience in the production of bicomponent fibres in the two-step process.

The Staple Force S 1000 is a small, compact staple fibre line that works according to the one-step process.

“Spinning and defined drawing take place in direct succession without intermediate storage of the spun tow in cans,” Oerlikon added.

Compared to conventional one-step processes, which work with take-up speeds of approximately 80 metres per minute, the Staple Force S 1000 achieves a take-up speed of approximately 1,000 metres per minute.

Oerlikon further added that the production of core/sheath bonding fibres made of PET/CoPET is now possible in the compact spinning process.

With a throughput of up to 15 tons per day, its compact construction, easy handling and energy efficient operation, the technology also enables nonwoven producers to efficiently integrate fibre manufacturing.

Energy and water savings through a dry drawing process lead to a reduction in operating cost and protect the environment.

“Cost-effective, flexible and compact are the features which will appeal to our customers and opens up diverse new market potential for them,” Mathias Gröner, senior manager at Oerlikon Neumag said. (AR)
