Oerlikon shows Winfors reversing winder at ITMA

At ITMA 2015, Oerlikon Barmag showcased the Winfors reversing winder which reveals its potential when winding materials such as microfilaments, mother yarn, airbag yarns and seatbelt yarns.

“Deployable in the POY, FDY, industrial yarn and BCF processes, Winfors can be used as standard for polyamide, polyester, polypropylene polymers and PVA,” an Oerlikon Barmag press release stated.

According to Oerlikon, the Winfors offers a considerably larger process window for seatbelt yarn applications than alternative winders.

For manufacturers of airbag yarns, the longer chuck, measuring 1200 mm in length, is a more efficient solution for producing yarn.

“Winfors is more versatile than any other winder on the market,” Peter Steinke, head of development at the Chemnitz site stated.

The winder exhibited at ITMA is based on the WINGS and ACW platform, but relies on the reversing shaft in terms of its traverse system.

With this, the yarn is laid in a particularly gentle manner and speeds of between 2500 and 4000 metres per minute are possible depending on the process.

Oerlikon further added that a further benefit of the new Winfors winder is its flexibility as it can be converted from a 4-end to an 8-end winder without much effort by simply exchanging the traverse system.

“This is particularly relevant for spinning polypropylene as here, the systems are usually smaller with mostly just four spinning positions,” Steinke said.

The Winfors is also perfect as a retrofit solution as it can be fitted under virtually every older spinning system.

Its huge process window and its versatility with regards to polymer processing and spinning processes make it the prudent solution for system modernisation.

As in the case of all Oerlikon Barmag winders, the WinFors is controlled by the multiply tried-and-tested guide system as well as the current Siemens electrical system for the required ribbon breaking methods. (AR)
