12 POY packages of up to 600d/576f (final) are produced in the spinning process using Wings HD 1800. This is made possible as a result of an additional godet, which ensures that the high yarn tensions developing in the process are reduced to the yarn tensions common in the case of the winding process to date. At the same time, the newly-developed suction unit with the accompanying yarn cutting device (yarn collecting system) ensures – both during string-up and in the event of a yarn break –reliable handling of the yarn with an overall titer of 7,200 den (final) and 6,912 filaments.
With this, the Oerlikon Barmag eAFK Big V Multispindle machine uses all winder positions and hence has the full production capacity at its disposal for manufacturing DTY yarns of 1200 den with up to 1152 filaments. Multiple plying of individually-spun filaments to create a high overall titer fundamentally impacts yarn quality. With the Oerlikon Barmag concept, this is minimised by plying the highest titers possible.
The eAFK Big V Multispindle texturing machine is based on the tried-and-tested eAFK Multispindle concept, with two individual friction rows. The high individual titers of up to 600 den per single filament can be textured using more powerful godet motors, a more powerful friction unit and a 2.5-m heater.
The straight configuration of heater and cooling unit ensures particularly gentle yarn handling with a simultaneous drawing/crimping process. This is especially important for producing delicate microfilament yarns of the best quality. Thanks to this multiple configuration, 576 texturing positions can be efficiently utilised when manufacturing high-titer yarns, which are then taken up using all 288 positions. And the machine is particularly efficient in the high titer range of between 900 and 1200 den. Here, the operating window of between 30 and 1200 den offers yarn manufacturers maximum flexibility. The eAFK Big V texturing concept was launched in 2018, and has already convinced numerous yarn manufacturers with its performance.
