At this year’s ITMA Asia which ran from 16 – 20 June, Oerlikon Neumag presented solutions for efficient carpet production where the focus was on the 3-end BCF plant S+.
According to the company, the Asian market is still regarded as a small market with development potential due to its classic consumer behaviour in the carpet sector, especially for export.
The market is very much focused on the production of contractual goods but there seems to be a change coming, the company says. “Our customers are always looking for innovations and new products,” explains Alfred Czaplinski, Sales Manager at BCF.
“Due to the high flexibility of our S+, we can practically cover every application.“
Neumag says that the 3-end S+ not only convinces due to the efficiency of 99% and therefore raw material cost savings - it also covers a wide spectrum of producible counts from 600 – 4000 dtex.
Additionally, all polymers from polyester, via polypropylene up to polyamide 6, can be processed on the multipolymer plants, the company adds.
Since its introduction to the market in 2011, the S+ is the ‘most-sold’ BCF plant and is producing economical, high-quality BCF yarns worldwide.
Oerlikon Manmade Fibers with the product brands Oerlikon Barmag and Oerlikon Neumag is the world market leader for filament spinning systems used for manufacturing manmade fibres, texturing machines, BCF systems, staple fibre spinning systems and artificial turf systems and – as an engineering services provider – offers solutions along the entire textile value added chain.
As a future oriented company, the Oerlikon Group segment’s research and development is driven by energy-efficiency and sustainable technologies. With the expansion of the product range to include polycondensation systems and their key components, the company now caters to the entire process – from the monomer all the way through to the textured yarn.
The primary Oerlikon Barmag markets are in Asia, with Oerlikon Neumag’s main markets in the US, Turkey and China. Correspondingly, the companies – with almost 2500 employees – have a worldwide presence in 120 countries as part of the Oerlikon Manmade Fibers network of production, sales and distribution and service organizations.
