At this year’s DOMOTEX Asia/CHINAFLOOR trade show in Shanghai between March 22-24, Oerlikon Neumag presented its diverse range of products and services in Hall W3, Stand H01. The focus of the Oerlikon Neumag stand was on solutions for the efficient manufacture of carpet yarns. The exemplary success of the S+ BCF system over many years clearly shows that there is also a focus on efficiency in BCF yarn manufacturing. Since being launched in 2011, the S+ is the world’s biggest- selling BCF system, efficiently manufacturing high-end BCF yarns across the globe.
The S+ offers superlative performance in terms of efficiency
The three-end S+ convinces not just with its 99 per cent efficiency and its resulting cost savings in terms of raw materials, it also covers a very broad spectrum of producible total titers ranging from 700 to 4,000 dtex. Furthermore, the multipolymer systems can be used without modifications to process all polymers, from polyester and polypropylene all the way through to polytrimethylene terephthalic (PTT). The product programme is complemented by the single-end Sytec One, which is convincing particularly in the specialties segment with its superlative yarn quality and high degree of flexibility.
Trend towards high-end yarns with fine filament titers
Due to consumer behaviour in the flooring segment, the Asian market has to date been considered a small market with a strong focus on contract products. However, there seems to be turnaround taking place here: high-end PA6 yarns with fine single filament titers are increasingly in demand. The reasons for this are generally believed to be the extremely low price of oil and the newly-established PA6 capacities in Asia, causing a price fall of approximately 30 per cent for PA6 granulate in the last six months alone. “The current market conditions particularly in China have resulted in low prices for PA6. In turn, this has created an extremely interesting new market for high-quality carpets. Our systems are particularly well-positioned in the premium-price segment, which explains the currently stronger interest in our systems especially within the Chinese market”, comments Alfred Czaplinski, Sales Manager BCF.
Domotex Hanover, Germany, as a promising herald of things to come
Oerlikon Neumag was also satisfied with the four lively trade fair days in Hanover in the middle of January. With order contracts in the tens of millions of euros signed – predominantly within the European, US-American and Chinese markets – the volume of orders received within the context of the Domotex show in Hanover was unexpectedly good.
Partnering for performance
In addition, Oerlikon Manmade Fibers Segment also showcased its expanded range of services under its ‘Partnering for Performance’ motto. With high-performance local operations in China, our Customer Service offers customer not only fast provision of original OEM quality parts, it also supports its Chinese customers with maintenance, repairs, training sessions and seminars, process consultation and numerous additional services.
