The principle behind manufacturing a thread is always the same: spinning pumps press the plastic melt through micro-fine spinnerets under extremely high pressure. The filaments created are then bundled into threads, drawn over godets and wound using a winder.

Precision processes for textile and industrial yarns

Reliably mastering this principle requires high-precision and simultaneously extremely sturdy technology. These machines are in operation day and night, year in, year out. The slightest fault in the spinning process cannot be subsequently corrected.

Oerlikon Barmag systems master the processes required for manufacturing textile and industrial yarns and spin the standard polymers polyester, polyamide 6 and 6.6 and polypropylene. Furthermore, we have also taken on the challenge of processing complex materials such as PTT, aramid, carbon fibers, glass fibers and similar.

Pre-oriented yarns (POY) are the starting material for a wide range of fashion, sports, functional and home textiles. Following production, POY yarns are textured and – with around 40 percent – make up the lion’s share of the global production of manmade fiber yarns.

Sustainable solutions for POY production

Our core competence is systems designed for the production of high-quality standard or specialty yarns. Regardless of whether polyester or polyamide, microfiber or super-microfiber – Oerlikon Barmag’s POY WINGS technology will give impetus to your success. Productive, energy-efficient, outstanding yarn quality – these are just a few of the numerous reasons you should opt for WINGS.

Challenging materials manufactured from other polymers such as PTT and polypropylene are manufactured in a conventional manner using the tried-and-tested ACW winding technology.

High yarn quality

High yarn quality

We support you in producing premium yarns – with our high-performance spinning system components: from the extruder and the spinning pump, the spin beam and the spin packs all the way through to the quenching system. Because the quality of the yarn is determined by the spinning system.

The EvoQuench radial quenching unit guarantees excellent yarn eveness for fine micro-yarns at a titer range from 0.3 to 3.1 den.

WINGS, with its particularly gentle yarn path makes sure that the spun yarn maintains the high quality it had upon exiting the spinning system. Its minimized deflection angle has a positive impact on the yarn evenness, the yarn tension, the CV% values and consequently the dyeability. A perfect package build ensures excellent further processing properties for the downstream processes such as texturing.

Savings in OPEX

Savings in OPEX

Competition within the yarn markets is becoming more intense. The consequence: constantly rising pressure on costs. The solution: optimized production processes, efficient systems, sustainable technologies. All these are provided by our POY technology with WINGS.

Your benefits

  • Up to 20% fewer operating staff
  • Up to 25% lower energy consumption
  • Up to 30% less waste
  • Up to 50% shorter string-up times
  • Up to 35% less space requirement

High efficiency

High efficiency

Efficiency is the most important characteristic of WINGS: It can be completely operated from floor level. All elements are laid out at eye level. Consequently, this reduces the time required for yarn string-up by more than 50%; time in which top-quality POY yarn – and not waste – can be produced. 50% faster string-up – which translates into 30% less waste.

Your benefits

  • The partially-automated string-up process minimizes the operating error rate
  • Fewer operators required through reduction by one operating level

Easy handling

Easy handling

There is no such thing as a maintenance-free POY system. However, we supply systems requiring minimum maintenance. And it is once again the WINGS take-up concept that gives you an edge.

Your benefits

  • Minimized downtimes during maintenance. WINGS as a plug-and-produce unit can be taken out of the system individually in just a few minutes.
  • Better start-up performance. WINGS is delivered as a completely pre-installed and tested unit.

Operation window
