'Innovation has a name – Oerlikon' motto @ ITMA event
Jun '11
Oerlikon Textile's new corporate motto will be leaving its mark on the ITMA 2011 in Barcelona from the 22 to the 29 September 2011: „Innovation has a name - Oerlikon“. The Oerlikon section will be representing this claim atop 1,400 square meters at booth D 131 in hall 2 – with outstanding technological solutions under the umbrella of five brands. Some highlights: the new eAFK automatic texturing machine, the generation S+ unit for BCF carpet yarns, the Allma TC2 and Volkmann CT twisting machines, new staple fibre yarn spinning and winding solutions and new service offers.

"We want to prove our market and technology leadership again – featuring energy-efficient designs under our e-save quality label in particular, as well as with service innovations. And we respond to the ITMA slogan 'Master the art of innovation' with our new corporate motto "Innovation has a name - Oerlikon", Thomas Babacan outlined the trade fair presence. The Oerlikon Textile CEO, too, will have already been speaking in the run-up to the fair at the technical "World Textile Summit" on September 21st, 2011 in Barcelona, giving a speech on the subject of innovation.

Oerlikon Barmag: Non plus ultra in texturing and spinning

The market leader for filament machines and equipment with HQ at Remscheid is focusing on the ultimate in texturing, exhibiting the new eAFK automatic texturing machine. This highlight of the fair combines proven reliable features of the eFK, AFK and MPS series with the flexibility of a new modular machine structure. The automatic machine fulfils the higher standard quality requirements of the market: Manual contact with the packages can be ruled out entirely (no-touch principle).

Packages with the same running length make for a considerably more economical further processing of the yarns, as well as for higher prices for the textured yarn. With automatic doffing, productivity and product yield increase; the reduced labour requirement cuts costs. Another thematic focus point is high-performance fibres for special applications. The new multithreaded automatic winding head for high-strength special yarns means considerably less energy consumption and space utilisation, as well as investment and maintenance costs.

Oerlikon Schlafhorst: On the pulse global trends in winding, ring and rotor spinning

The market and innovation leader in ring and rotor spinning, as well as winding, promises surprises and targets the themes dominating the market: raw materials, staff, energy and efficiency. With ring spinning on the Zinser, for example, the automatic doffing process makes handling simple; the manual effort and with it the labour requirement are reduced considerably. In addition, ImpactFX compact technology ensures raw materials efficiency and maximum process reliability.

With rotor spinning Oerlikon Schlafhorst wants to shift the focus to raw materials and blends that were inconceivable yesterday – indeed, with technical solutions that overstep the previous bounds with respect to productivity and flexibility. Here, innovations are guaranteed. In winding, Autoconer provides various automated steps and machine types that can reduce the labour requirement further. Total concepts, single-motor drives for intelligent piecing cycles and sensor-monitored processes and control systems are writ large across every technology too.
