Oerlikon Textile, market and technological leader in the field of textile machinery and plant, is showing its strength on an area of approximately 1200 m2 at booth H01/F02 in Hall W2. Show highlights include the Autocoro 8 rotor spinning machine, new solutions for ring spinning and winding systems, the FDY take-up winding machine WINGS, twisting and embroidery solutions and manifold premium components. In addition, Oerlikon invites visitors to a "virtual showroom" in which, they can familiarise themselves with complex installations and process sequences in 3D for nonwovens, synthetic staple fibre and BCF carpet yarn plants.
"Oerlikon Textile will present technology solutions especially for the requirements of the Asian market with a focus on a sustainable textile production. Our e-save program fits perfectly to the needs of our customers: Creating a higher productivity, saving more energy and the protection of the environment with a less waste production," says Mr Clement Woon, chief officer of Oerlikon Textile.
At the ITMA Asia Oerlikon Textile is presenting its broad product portfolio in the manmade fibre, natural fibre and textile components business. Five leading brands will exhibit the following products under the umbrella of Oerlikon Textile on the show.
Oerlikon Barmag: Main spotlight on WINGS
Oerlikon Barmag will be presenting innovative solutions focusing on increasing productivity, saving energy and ergonomics. Initially, the main spotlight will be on WINGS for FDY yarns - with the first production systems being commissioned in the first quarter of 2012. The trade show's exhibits will also include the corresponding spinning pumps for the FDY process with WINGS.
A further information focus in Shanghai will be on the carbon fibres sector, with exhibits including the WinTrax carbon fibre winder from the German textile machine builder's Chemnitz-based subsidiary. As the reinforcing fibre fabric in composite materials, carbon fibres are considered the materials of the future. Fibre composite materials promise solutions wherever light, but nevertheless stable structures are required. Here, the manufacture of the fundamental fibres is considered extremely complex and challenging.
Oerlikon Schlafhorst: One-stop innovations in spinning and winding
The market and innovation leader in ring and rotor spinning and winding supplies spinning mills worldwide with innovations for the optimum in quality, reliability and economic benefit. The new Autocoro 8 is thus the first and only rotor spinning machine to spin a yarn at a rotor speed of 2,00,000 rpm. The new technology forms the basis for productivity increases of up to 25 per cent, machine start-up in minutes instead of hours, an excellent multi-lot capability and much lower spinning costs. The BD 448 is the longest semi-automatic rotor spinning machine in the world. The Zinser ring spinning machines 351 and 451 promise unique process reliability with the Impact FX compact spinning technology and the CoWeMat doffer. And the quality package of the Autoconer X5 sets the benchmark for individually and flexibly adaptable package quality with maximum productivity.
Superior competence in BCF carpet yarns, staple fibres and nonwoven production With a market share of nearly 70 per cent, the company is a leading supplier of highly advanced BCF carpet yarn machines. The BCF best seller in 2011, the S+ with three ends per position, is now available for the up-and-coming raw material polyester BCF. The BCF S+ for polyester is a perfect substitute for polyester spun yarn on account of its cost efficiency in production. Production systems for polyester staple fibres permit maximum capacities of up to 300 tonnes per day and cut operating costs at the same time. For manufacturers of nonwovens such as geotextiles, compact inline systems with capacities of up to 80 tonnes per day offer suitable solutions as they permit small production batches and require few operators. Also on the agenda are machines or turnkey systems for the production of nonwovens from spunbond and meltblown to air-laid. Visitors to the exhibition can also navigate through the innovations in 3D on a virtual tour of the installation.
Oerlikon Saurer: Embroider and twist perfectly and economise on costs
The market leader in embroidery and twisting is putting the emphasis on energy saving with the new Volkmann CT: the eco-drive concept and spindles are the perfect complement to the e-save spindle family and help to save up to 40 per cent of energy costs, even for the finest yarn counts. Next new process: Volkmann Heat-SET integrates cabling, thermofixing and winding in one process sequence, thus reducing process costs and speeding up order completion. The new Allma TC2 two-for-one twisting machine can process every conceivable material in the titre range from 235 to 60,000 dtex. It thus satisfies the demand for top quality, application variety and production flexibility in the market for technical plied yarns. Its sister machine Allma CC4 is revolutionising the tyre cord cabling market with energy savings of up to 50 per cent.
And the Epoca 6 with its new drive system, optimal adjustment options and perfect thread cutting delivers the product up to 30 per cent faster with maximum reliability and embroidery quality.
Oerlikon Textile Components: The best place to go for all premium components
As market leader, Oerlikon Textile Components is a byword for quality and know-how in the production of premium components for the filament industry and staple fibre spinning mills and is exhibiting innovations for different applications. Special exhibition highlights: in staple fibre spinning, the world's most versatile Texparts® PK 2630 SE weighting arms soon also available for Rieter and LMW spinning frames and Texparts® PK 2025+ weighting arms with excellent performance and flexibility even in difficult spinning conditions.
Spindles with the Texparts® Zero Underwinding system prevent underwind threads and offer maximum reliability, efficiency and operator-friendliness in use. The novel curved edge of the Daytexv Shrinkage Belt is completely devoid of sharp edges, preventing tears from forming and thus extending the belt's service life. Accotex® Glass Forming Apron, which is setting new standards in durability, is also now available for all applications. The highlights for filament processing are the Heberlein® TexJet-ATY, which leads to a new area in air texturing. The jet is the solution for low productivity caused by rapid contamination, the general level of yarn quality and the limited process window.
Fibrevision® Unitens is the market leading On Line Monitoring system for all makes of DTY machinery operating 5,00,000 thread lines world-wide. Temco® Long Life plus Friction disc designed for abrasive yarn is wear-protected for a 50% higher lifetime. The Heberlein® AirSplicer-70-2 with long-life Phoenix knifes expands the technical performance limits for high modulus fibres. The efficient and sustainable solution Temco® Nip Roller Unit consisting of Daytex® Cots and Temco® Nip Roller Bearings offers energy savings up to 50% compared to conventional nip roller units. This entitles the Temco® Nip Roller Unit as an "e-save" labelled key component.
