Industrial yarns are considered to be the ultimate discipline in filament manufacturing. High tenacities, extreme dimensional stability, tremendous durability along with a large range of titers – although the demanding production process promises high-margins, it is however also simultaneously a huge challenge both for the yarn manufacturer and the systems constructor.

Sustainable solutions for IDY production

With a operation window of between 50 and 12,000 den per filament, Oerlikon Barmag industrial yarn systems cover an extremely-wide titer range. Depending on the application and the required yarn characteristics, our systems produce ‘strong’ yarns for all applications: from high-tenacity high-modulus yarn for safety belts, HMLS yarns for tire cords all the way through to low and ultra-low shrinkage yarns for tarpaulins.
