The first eFK texturing machine goes to China

The first eFK-type texturing machines will be installed in China. A contract for ten machines – which premiered at the ITMA Asia 2008 – was recently signed with Jinxing (Fujian) Chemical Fibre and Textile Industry Co., Ltd., a subsidiary of Fujian Jinxing Group. The decisive factor for the contract was the energy-efficient godet technology, which Oerlikon Barmag has been successfully using in its MPS- and COCOON-type texturing machines for many years now.

Hong Tianpai, CEO of Fujian Jinxing Group, examined the live production performance of the eFK at last year's ITMA Asia. The presented processes, with yarn specialties such as 50d/144f and 20d/96f at a speed of 700 m/min, obviously were extremely convincing.

"The machine is the perfect addition to our product portfolio”, reasons Fujian Jinxing's CEO, Hong Tianpai, commenting on the company's purchasing decision. And the long-term Oerlikon Barmag customer has also invested in texturing technology from Remscheid in the past. Its top-quality yarns, used primarily in the high-end textiles segment, are textured using FK6- and MPS-type machines.

Jinxing (Fujian) Chemical Fibre and Textile Industry Co. Ltd. specializes primarily in texturing polyester microfibers. With an annual capacity of 180,000 tons of filament yarn and 60,000 tons of polyester staple fiber yarns as well as 65,000 tons of various yarn specialties, Fujian Jinxing Group is one of the largest manmade fiber yarn manufacturers in the Fujian Province.

With the energy-saving godet technology of the MPS and the COCOON and the ergonomic handling of the FK6-1000, the eFK texturing machine unites proven technologies from various Oerlikon Barmag texturing machines. Efficient, energy-conscious, ergonomic and economical, the eFK establishes the new generation of Oerlikon Barmag texturing machines.
