Efficient PA6 FDY production with WINGS
WINGS FDY is now also newly available for the polyamide 6 process. The concept will be unveiled to the broader public at the ITMA 2019 in June in Barcelona.
With this development, the tried-and-tested WINGS technology – to date well-known for FDY yarns from polyester manufacturing – is now also 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 and WINGS FDY pays yarn producers dividends, particularly in terms of investment expenditure (CAPEX) and operating expenditure (OPEX): significant savings with regards to energy, footprint and – due to the more ergonomic design – a rather convenient string-up are among the WINGS FDY PA concept’s most convincing arguments. The enclosed draw unit ensures low spin finish emissions, offering a safe working environment.
Offering swift string-up, the optimized 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: 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.
