The principle behind manufacturing a thread is always the same: spinning pumps press the polymer 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 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.

Fully-drawn yarns (FDY) are used to manufacture textile fabrics without the need for further finishing. Wherever textiles are to hang smoothly or glide fully-drawn yarns are used.

Sustainable solutions for FDY production

Once again, Oerlikon Barmag is the technology leader here. The WINGS concept – transferred to the FDY process – has removed the limitations of conventional FDY spinning systems. WINGS provides optimized production processes, low waste rates and an around 30-percent reduction in energy consumption. This trailblazing technology can be used for polyester in the FDY process.

Other polymers, such as polyamide and polypropylene, are wound in a conventional manner using the i-QOON or 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 polyester yarns from 40 to 150 den with up to 2 dpf, or
  • for polyamide yarn spinning at a titer range from 20 to 70 den, however, in combination with ACW take-up.
  • 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.

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 FDY technology with WINGS.

Your benefits

  • Up to 20% fewer operating staff
  • Up to 46% lower energy consumption
  • Up to 50% less waste
  • Up to 40% shorter string-up times
  • Up to 25% less space requirement in the spinning due with double-in-one concepts

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 string-up time by 25 - 40%; time in which top-quality FDY yarn – and not waste – can be produced.

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 FDY 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

  • Better start-up performance. WINGS is delivered as a completely pre-installed and tested unit.

Operation window
