Remscheid, August 25, 2010 – Space-saving solutions are gaining in importance, and the Industrial Yarn area is no exception. This is a factor that the new 6LA spin pack by Oerlikon Barmag – premiered at this year’s ITMA Asia from 22 through 26 June – takes into account. An industrial yarn plant fitted with the 6LA spin pack is around 25% more compact and has a filter surface that is more than three times larger than for conventional metal powder filtration.
All this is made possible thanks to tighter position spacing. With the innovative inner melt feed, the 6LA spin pack allows for production of two threads per spin pack, with constantly high yarn quality. At the same time, though, the 6LA spin pack provides for greater product variety: with no change in throughput, for instance, yarn with half the titer can be produced with twice the number of ends.
Thanks to the use of reusable filter cartridges, the successful concept behind the 3LA spin pack reduces maintenance costs and waste rates.
