Oerlikon Neumag says it has found the right approach for its customers with the efficient BCF S8 carpet yarn system in Monocolor and Tricolor versions. Their solution is once again in the spotlight at this year's Domotex Asia / Chinafloor from 24-26 March 2021 in Shanghai. The audience of professionals can see the advantages for themselves at Oerlikon Neumag exhibition stand W3 D26, the company says.

Whether Monocolor or Tricolor, the performance data and technological details of the BCF S8 versions have already made a huge impression at numerous exhibitions and road shows, says Oerlikon. With up to 700 filaments per thread, the BCF S8 significantly outperforms its sister, the BCF S+ (400 filaments), also guaranteeing finer titres of up to 2.5 dpf, the Neumuenster based company explains.

In addition, the process speed of the new Witras III-37 winder is higher than ever at 3700 m/min – and provides increased throughput of up to 15% in comparison to previous technologies, adds Oerlikon Neumag. The bottom line is a system efficiency of 99%, as well as possible energy savings of up to 5 percent per kilogramme of yarn, it adds.

From a mélange to strict separation – the trend towards multiple colours for carpets goes on. The options for differentiating product for carpet yarn manufacturers are better than ever with the BCF S8 due to even more flexible colour mixture versions, the company concludes. More than 200,000 different colour shades derived from three colours are provided by the core component of the process, the new patent-pending CPC-T (Colour Pop Compacting unit).
