Ever since manmade fibers were created, man has been attempting to give the smooth, synthetic filament a natural fiber-like character.

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.

The eFK is a highly efficient DTY machine with the latest godet feed technology and benefits for best yarn quality.

Highly efficient texturing

The eFK manual texturing machine showcases the evolution of ‘made by Oerlikon Barmag’ texturing: tried-and-tested solutions such as the take-up system and the pneumatic yarn string-up device have been retained and new technologies have been deployed where they markedly improve machine efficiency, profitability and handling.

A trailblazing further development lies in the godet technology already being deployed in the MPS and Cocoon solutions: in the case of the eFK, godets once again replace the shaft in transporting the yarn upstream and downstream to the texturing zone. In addition to superior yarn quality and process stability, they also guarantee a reduction in the energy consumption.

A range of variants and options also enables the efficient production of challenging (micro) yarns.
