Recently, Oerlikon invited visitors to Shanghaitex in China on a journey into future of manmade fibre production. It showed its guests a vision of sustainable and automated manmade fibre production under the motto ‘Clean Technology, Smart Factory’. Together with numerous other innovations, all this forms the new DNA of Oerlikon manmade fibres segment.

Launched to create new standards in texturing: the Eafk Evo generation of machines promises superior speeds, greater productivity and consistently high product quality, along with lower energy consumption and simpler operation vis-à-vis comparable market solutions. Oerlikon Barmag showed these wide-ranging capabilities at the trade fair with a high-end design from the new system platform. In particular, the numerous value-added features included two cool technology: the optimised EvoHeater and the EvoCooler, a completely newly-developed active cooling unit.

Wings Fdy is now available for the polyamide 6 process. With this development, the tried and-tested Wings technology – to date well-known for Fdy yarns from polyester manufacturing – is also now available for the challenging polyamide 6 process. This new 24-end winding concept makes the efficient production of Fdy PA6 yarns a reality.

Extending the polyamide yarn production from 12 to 24 ends with DIO, Wings Fdy pays yarn producers dividends, particularly in terms of investment expenditure and operating expenditure: significant savings with regards to energy footprint due to its more ergonomic design.

The enclosed draw unit ensures low spin finish emissions, offering a safe working environment. Offering swift string-up, the optimised yarn path of the tried-and tested Wings Fdy PET system is united with the high relaxing performance of conventional polyamide systems to create a completely new concept. The 24-end Wings Fdy PA hence profitably combines the benefits of both processes. The result is outstanding yarn properties, excellent dyeability, optimum process performance and high full package rate.

A perfect package build guarantees excellent further processing properties in the downstream processes. With a 116-mm stroke, this winder makes high package weights possible, therefore delivering added-value yarns for further processing. As a consequence, yarn manufacturers can give themselves a competitive advantage in the marketplace

The BCF S8 production plant promises carpet yarn manufacturers greater punching power within a fiercely contended market. Superlative spinning speeds, up to 700 filaments per yarn end, finer titers down to 2.5 dpf – the performance data and technological finesse of the new system already made an impression at its unveiling at the German Domotex trade fair in January. At Shanghaitex 2019 the monocolour and the tricolour version of the BCF S8 was unveiled.

Polyester and its applications are omnipresent in our everyday lives. Whether as beverage bottles, film packaging, high-tech sports shirts or safety belts, polyester excels with its excellent mechanical properties and inexpensive production. However, the constantly rising demand requires responsible handling of global resources. For this reason, it is not only ‘virgin polyester’ generated from crude oil that is exclusively the raw material for manufacturing, so too is polyester recycled from post-production and postconsumer waste. Processing production waste also helps cut raw material, disposal and transport costs, hence increasing efficiency.

With the new VacuFil recycling series, Oerlikon Barmag in cooperation with its subsidiary company BBEngineering is offering a solution catering to a ‘clean technology’ production philosophy. Decades of experience in the areas of extrusion, filtration and spinning systems have been bundled into a new, innovative core component – the vacuum filter. It unites gentle largescale filtration and controlled intrinsic-viscosity build-up for consistently outstanding melt quality. The vacuum unit – located adjacent to the filter – swiftly and reliably removes volatile contamination (spinning oil, etc). The excellent degasification performance additionally relieves the energy-intensive pre-drying process.

The modular structure of the VacuFil range offers numerous possibilities for the process guiding system. Whether as a standalone solution with downstream granulation or as an inline variant with 3DD additive feed – customer requirements can be optimally catered for with various system configurations.

Oerlikon develops modern materials, systems and surface technologies and provides specialised services aimed at securing high-performance products and systems with long lifespans for customers.

With its Oerlikon Barmag, Oerlikon Neumag and Oerlikon Nonwoven brands, Oerlikon Manmade Fibers segment is the world market leader for manmade fibre filament spinning systems, texturing machines, BCF systems, staple fibre systems, solutions for the production of nonwovens and as a service provider– offers engineering solutions for the entire textile value added chain.
