Texturing machines from Oerlikon Barmag
Texturing is a finishing step that transforms the POY supply yarn into DTY and hence into an attractive and unique product. During texturing, pre-oriented yarn (POY) is permanently crimped using friction. As a result, elasticity and heat retention are increased, the yarn receives a pleasant handle, while thermal conduction is simultaneously reduced.
