Market leader Oerlikon Neumag has its finger firmly on the pulse of their customers with the new Color Pop Compacting unit (CPC-T) for the BCF S8 carpet yarn plant, which is now available for the Polyamide 6 process. The new solution, which was on show from 10-13 January 2020 at the Domotex 2020 in Hannover, attracted great interest from many trade visitors, Oerlikon Neumag reports.

“Following the trend for multi-coloured carpets, BCF S8 sets new standards in regard to color separation. The plant, launched as a tricolour solution at last year’s ITMA in Barcelona, makes anything possible – from mélange to strongly separated. It promises carpet yarn producers even more flexible color mixing variants for product differentiation. The core component in this process, the Color Pop Compacting unit (CPC-T), offers more than 200,000 different color shades from three colours. The innovation, which has been filed for patent, is available for polypropylene and polyester polymers as well as for the polyamide 6 process,” the company explained.

During numerous conversations with customers, Martin Rademacher, Head of Sales Oerlikon Neumag, observed a noticeable trend for polyester in the carpet industry even outside the USA. Sustainable solutions are equally sought after: “Our customers increasingly demand plants that can process recycled polyester,” Mr Rademacher said.

The Manmade Fibers segment presented an additional solution by Oerlikon Barmag for polyester applications that need fine single filament counts from 0.5 dpf and high filament counts: Puffy, soft polyester filament yarns with BCF-similar properties are produced on the basis of a POY and texturing process. Core components of the processes are the POY take-up unit WINGS HD as well as the new texturing machine eAFK Big-V.

Orders completed in the customer service area during the Domotex show the importance of core and micro components for a stable spinning process, Neumag reports. “All in all, we have been able to secure original parts, service and modernisation orders in the six-digit euro range,” says Niels Herrmann, Director for Service Sales at Oerlikon Neumag.

“Our customers are very quality conscious. They know that high-quality yarn and an efficient production depend on the optimal condition of the system. Our services and trainings as well as custom-fit original parts and individual upgrades help to achieve optimal production conditions.”

Sales successes was also be celebrated in the plant business, with the market leader in the area of carpet yarn and filament plants securing five orders for BCF and DTY plants.
