Remscheid, Milan 12-19 November 2015 – The WINGS concept has been state-of-the-art in the area of yarn drawing and take-up for years. Now it has also become available to operators of older POY systems with SW, CW and ACW winders. With a new series, market leader Oerlikon is now expanding into the market for upgrades and modernisations to answer the high demand for WINGS retrofit solutions.
The new series of winders is called WINGS POY XS. Due to its extremely compact design, it can be used for virtually any building concept. This stand-alone solution offers the usual benefits of a WINGS winder and is available for polyester as well as polyamide.
The series currently includes five models with 8 to 12 thread and chuck lengths of 1,200 to 1,800 mm. Despite its compact design, WINGS XS produces packages with a volume of up to 23.2 dm³. At the ITMA Milan, the eightfold winder version from the WINGS POY XS series with a stroke length of 170 mm will be exhibited.
