FDY learns to fly, too

The Remscheid, Germany, mechanical-engineering company Oerlikon Barmag introduced its latest development for FDY production at this year's ITMA Asia, from 22-26 June. The market-revolutionising POY concept, WINGS – a crowd puller at ITMA 2007 in Munich – is also transferable to the FDY process.

“We're still at the testing and trial stage in regard to the operation window. However, there's one thing I can report: the system works", informs Oerlikon Barmag Managing Director Stefan Kroß of the development success so long awaited by the experts.

"WINGS FDY was the logical next step after we set such a brisk pace with the POY concept", notes Stefan Kroß. "This is something the market has been waiting for. In the FDY process, particularly from an energy standpoint, there is an even greater potential for savings than in the POY process. We are noticing an immense leap in demand for “green technologies” among our customers. Energy efficiency, low wastage rates and environmentally friendly technologies are becoming more and more important." In the FDY process, energy costs account for around 45 to 50% of conversion costs.

The new FDY machine bursts open the boundaries of conventional FDY spinning systems in terms of optimised production processes, waste ratios and energy consumption. Reduced conversion costs, ergonomic workflows, simplified maintenance, considerably shorter commissioning and the high yarn quality the industry has come to expect from Oerlikon Barmag spinning systems are convincing arguments for the new concept.

The WINGS concept
WINGS integrates godets and tangle unit into the winder. This plug-in unit guarantees yarn producers not only improved productivity and efficiency but also a constantly high and uniform yarn quality. Requiring less space and offering savings in operators, it contributes to improved efficiency. The optimised yarn path ensures an even gentler yarn treatment – and thus top-notch yarn quality.
