At ITMA ASIA + CITME currently taking place in Shanghai, the largest staple fibre plant order in the history of Oerlikon Neumag has been concluded with the major Chinese group Xinfengming.

It involves the supply of eight complete staple fibre lines with a total of 320 spinning positions for the production of synthetic staple fibres.

Oerlikon will not only supply the technology but will also take over the engineering of the lines. Delivery is scheduled for 2022.

With a total daily capacity of 1,800 tons, the two-step lines will produce cotton-type staple fibres in the range of 1-1.4 denier.

With this investment, the Xinfengming Group is expanding its product portfolio. As one of the world’s leading FDY and POY polyester filament yarn producers, the Chinese company has relied on Oerlikon Barmag technologies for decades, and from next year will also rely on those of Oerlikon Neumag.
