Oerlikon to present new compact staple fibres spinning system

YarnsandFibers News Bureau 2014-03-12 12:55:00 – Switzerland

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 fibers, texturing machines. Oerlikon Neumag will be presenting plants and technologies for the production of high-quality nonwovens for hygiene and technical applications at INDEX, the leading nonwovens show to be held next month in Geneva, Switzerland.

The new, compact plant is designed for the economic production of staple fibres in small lots up to 15 tons per day, as required for carded nonwovens production but also significantly reduces energy costs by replacing steam and water baths through a dry drawing process.

According to Rainer Straub, Vice President Product Management Oerlikon Manmade Fibers, the Staple FORCE S 1000 is directed at downstream integrators, who in future want to produce the fibres for their products in-house, enabling the nonwovens producer to produce and further develop his end products without disclosing know-how and without quality fluctuations.

Spunbond technology will also be on the agenda at INDEX. The one-step spunbond technology convinces with a combination of effectiveness and productivity, thus lowering production costs by up to 20%. More than 3 million tons of technical nonwovens were produced last year and the demand is still increasing, especially in emerging countries. Thinner, lighter, efficient materials, as produced with the spunbond technology, now specify the trend.

Oerlikon Neumag offers the complete process from polymer chips up to roll goods for the production of substrate for bitumen roofing membranes, sarking membranes and also geotextiles.

At this year’s INDEX, the leading exhibition for nonwovens starting from 8 to 11 April in Geneva, Switzerland, for the first time, Oerlikon’s new staple fibre plant Staple FORCE S 1000 will be introduced on stand 2314 in hall 2. With the new technology carded nonwovens producers will now be able to make their own fibres.

Oerlikon Neumag has a comprehensive portfolio of nonwoven technologies, from melt-spun spunbond (spunbond and meltblown) up to air-laid nonwovens (airlaid). Application areas include special technical uses such as filtration, roofing, geotextiles and automotive, as well as hygiene applications. Technology for a rapidly growing market.
