Remscheid, Shanghai October 21, 2016 – the Oerlikon Manmade Fibers segment will be present-ing itself with a DTY innovation in Hall 1, Stand A16 at the ITMA Asia + CITME between October 21 and 25 at the new National Exhibition Center China (NECC) in Shanghai – in line with its leit-motif: ‘From Melt to Yarn, Fibers and Nonwovens’.
Texturing in a new dimension
eAFK HQ – texturing in a new dimension
with the automatic eAFK HQ DTY machine, Oerlikon Barmag will be presenting the world’s most productive texturing machine at the ITMA Asia + CITME. Furthermore, the new eAFK HQ simultaneously excels as a result of its extremely space-saving construction. With this, customers are able to texture their products in the tried-and-tested Oerlikon Barmag quality on a machine with the smallest space requirements per position in the DTY market. At the same time, they benefit from the 50% increase in productivity offered by the eAFK HQ compared to other texturing machines supplied by competitors.
The eAFK HQ is designed with 12 sections, each with 48 positions and a broad denier range of between 30 and 300 den. Compared to the eAFK machine – with more than 1,000 successful installations worldwide – an additional fourth level in the winding unit and extended sections increase the capacity of the machine to 576 positions – a world record! And all this with simultaneously considerably reduced energy consumption. The newly-developed compact block heater lowers energy costs by reducing the radiated heat loss.
With the highest level of precision and gentler yarn handling, the new ATT traverse system with its optimized autodoff function ensures excellent package build with simultaneously outstanding doffing efficiency. Perfect package build ensures smooth further processing within the textile value chain. High productivity combined with a broad process window and robust machine design make the eAFK HQ a profitable investment for yarn manufacturers.
