Our solutions

  • Industrial yarn solutions

    With a production window of between 50 and 12,000 den per filament, Oerlikon Barmag industrial yarn systems cover an extremely-wide titer range.

  • Technical nonwovens solutions

    The market for industrial nonwovens is expanding at breathtaking speeds of more than 9% per annum. Increasing demand for these materials, particularly in emerging economies, is generating tremendous opportunities for manufacturers. 

  • Synthetic staple fiber solutions

    Synthetic staple fibers are not only used in the manufacture of textiles: These diverse manmade fibers are also being deployed in industrial applications.

Oerlikon Barmag's total solutions comprise all "life stages" of a manmade fiber: including the recycling of materials made of filaments that had been produced on Oerlikon Barmag machines, such as textiles or even tires.

As a future oriented company, Oerlikon’s Manmade Fibers Segment’s research and development is driven by energy-efficiency and sustainable technologies. With the expansion of the product range to include polycondensation systems and their key components, the company now caters to the entire process – from the monomer all the
way through to the textured yarn.

Market areas and core competencies

  • Oerlikon Barmag has established itself as a successful niche-market supplier: winders for special yarns, special applications. Tape and monofilament systems are developed and manufactured at the Chemnitz site.
  • In addition to plant design, spinning and texturing systems, our core competencies include the manufacture of components such as winders, pumps and godets.
  • In the Oerlikon Barmag Technical Center in Remscheid, Germany, the largest of its type in the world, leading innovative processes and technological products are developed for tomorrow. The product range is rounded off by comprehensive after-sales service.
  • Oerlikon Barmag's main markets are in Asia, particularly in China and Taiwan, the Near and Middle East, and in Europe. Accordingly, with about 8 000 employees in 120 countries with production, sales and service organizations, our company is close to the customer everywhere.

Products and solutions

  • As the world market leader, Oerlikon Barmag looks back on many decades of development and production of highly productive and innovative spinning systems and texturing machines for the manmade fiber industry. This also comprises the development of components, such as winders, pumps and godets.
  • The spinning systems and components are suitable for all fiber applications: POY, FDY, industrial yarns and others, e.g. HOY or LOY.
  • Oerlikon Barmag plants are able to process a multitude of polymers, such as polyester, polyamide 6, polyamide 6.6 and polypropylene. In addition to textile fibers for the
    production of clothes, the yarns produced on Oerlikon Barmag machines are also found in home textiles, in outdoor equipment and even in safety belts, airbags and car tires. Industrial yarns sometimes have to tolerate extreme stresses and fulfil stringent
    safety requirements: variations in temperature, humidity, extreme dryness or friction, without losing their shape and resistance.
  • Oerlikon Barmag is also present in the upstream processes: With Barmag polycondensation systems, the filament yarn producer can reduce its dependency on the raw material supply and to largely determine independently the raw material characteristic. With more than 80 years of experience, Oerlikon Barmag knows the demands in the filament spinning sector well and transfers them into processoptimized work steps. From the monomer to the yarn - all from one source.
