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.

VarioFil is the ideal production unit for manufacturers that have a wide range of products, small lot numbers or specialised products. The VarioFil unit is not limited to using only one material or a particular process. Customised conversion packages allow the unit to be adjusted to the market requirements quickly and at reasonable rates.

Greatest level of flexibility in filament spinning.



VarioFil is a very flexible compact spinning line for the production of textile partially oriented yarn (POY) as well as textile fully drawn yarn (FDY) made of PP, PET or PA with a titer range between 40 - 600 den. A vertical construction guarantees best yarn quality and productivity with a production capacitiy of up to 170 kg/h per extruder.

VarioFil S

VarioFil S

VarioFil S is a very flexible compact spinning line for the production of partially oriented (POY) or fully drawn yarn (FDY) made of PP. The production of high tenacity yarn (HTY) is possible as well.

VarioFil R

VarioFil R

VarioFil R/R+ is a very flexible compact spinning line for the production of textile partially oriented yarn (POY) made of recycled Polyester (rPET chips or bottle flakes). Thus, it is the world’s first POY spinning line which uses recycled bottle flakes as feedstock for dope-dyed textile POY. The line provides several technological features such as a special extrusion system for bottle flake materials, the latest metering and blending technology for dope-dyeing and an advanced 2-step melt filtration. The result is a high quality dope-dyed POY. The turnkey machine comprises 4 spinning positions, each equipped with an Oerlikon Barmag 10-end WINGS POY winder.

The VarioFil R is a turnkey spinning line for PET POY made from rPET chips.
