Oerlikon Manmade Fibers Segment will show its digital machinery at ITMA Asia+CITME 2018 exhibition, in hall 2, B24. The leading textile machinery expo will be held from October 15-19, 2018, in Shanghai, China. ‘From Melt to Yarn, Fibres, and Nonwovens – Bring it to Life’ is the motto under which the Oerlikon Manmade Fibers Segment participates in the show.

Technologies such as artificial intelligence, machine learning, or innovative HMI (Human Machine Interface) solutions promise the bridging between material and data flow – for customer value. These topics are also the central point of the ‘Oerlikon Innovation Forum’ at which presentations in English and Chinese will be held several times a day for visitors of the exhibition booth, according to an Oerlikon press release.

At ITMA Asia+CITME 2018, the company will give an insight for new developments for the digitisation of the process chain ‘From Melt to Yarn, Fibres, and Nonwoven’. The digital future solution, AIM4DTY, that provides help with the identification of possible error causes in texturing machines to help reduce quality risks, will be a part of the show.

Here, data security, data minimisation, and transparency are extremely important. This means that the data are utilised at the customer site as far as possible and only transferred to the Oerlikon central customer data centre if required – and only following customer approval. Wiping robot with intelligent control system for cleaning of spinnerets will be displayed at ITMA Asia. The crucial advantage of the wiping robot is automation: intelligent control system which connects machines and processes. The information relating to all wiping positions, cycles, and times can be saved in the management system.

The robot accesses the saved wiping intervals in an automated and safety-relevant manner. To this end, the robot can cope with up to 48 positions, corresponding to one entire production line.

The company is set to display the Staple FORCE S1100 for the first time at the expo. The Staple FORCE S1100 is a one-step plant, which spins, draws, crimps, cuts, and bales in a single process step, produces small batches (up to 15 tons per day) and can be swiftly reconfigured for various requirements, including polymer, dye, and titer changes. Its process control system for easy operation is absolutely unique.

The service for repair-coating from Oerlikon Barmag for thread-handling parts such as godet jackets also includes the expert’s know-how to identify and review abrasion in order to recreate the correct surface structure at the location. This way they can provide all important requirements to creating optimal plant and yarn quality.

To show its direction towards digitisation, the company wants to offer its visitors at the exhibition booth, alongside machine exhibits, mostly virtual experiences. They will be deploying playful solutions to present the topic of artificial intelligence as well as a virtual showroom to allow visitors to experience complex systems live in 3D. (GK)
