Oerlikon Neumag will present the Sytec One solution for demanding BCF processes at this week’s Domotex 2018, a leading trade fair for floor coverings, which takes place in Hannover, Germany.

Cost-efficient production of carpet yarns beyond commodity products can constitute a challenge. Highly standardised production systems must strike compromises with regard to throughput, quality or cost-efficiency. The Sytec One is a BCF plant with only one end per position. Due to this single-end characteristic, it is particularly well suited for demanding production processes, such as recycled polyester or fine filaments, according to the manufacturer.

“In the event of a yarn break, only one end breaks,” the company explains. “All the other positions are not affected and continue to run. As a result, this plant has a higher efficiency compared with a multi-end technology plant. For example, with ten breaks a day, the efficiency of the Sytec One is still over 98%, while a three-end technology achieves only 92% efficiency.”

The machine concept of the Sytec One with its straight yarn path in spinning and texturing is also said to enable significantly higher process speeds compared to multi-end technologies. This results in a speed increase of up to 15%.

In addition to standard processes, more demanding processes with higher break rates play an increasingly important role. “The product mix is critical to the choice of technology,” said Martin Rademacher, Vice President of Sales, Oerlikon Neumag. “We are in the comfortable position of being able to offer our customers both a single-end and a three-end technology.”

Oerlikon Neumag offers an extensive portfolio of technologies for the production of synthetic staple fibres. It delivers both one-step and two-step technology solutions, which aim to enable customers to produce a flexible range between 5 and 300 tonnes of polypropylene, polyester, recycled polyester, polyamide, and other similar materials per day.

With its Oerlikon Barmag and Oerlikon Neumag brands, Oerlikon Manmade Fibers segment is the market leader in manmade fibre filament spinning systems, texturing machines, BCF systems, staple fibre systems, nonwovens and artificial turf systems and – as a service provider – offers engineering solutions for the entire textile value added chain.\manmade-fibers
