The machine and system builder Oerlikon Barmag, Chemnitz/Germany, a subsidiary of the Oerlikon Manmade Fibers segment of Oerlikon Management AG, Pfäffikon/Switzerland, has signed contracts for 2 orders with a total of 120 spinning positions for manufacturing polyamide POY yarn with Chinese yarn manufacturers.
All spinning positions will be equipped with the EvoQuench radial quenching system for polyamide. Currently, Oerlikon Barmag is the world’s only supplier of an already operating radial quenching concept for polyamide. The benefits of radial quenching vis-à-vis conventional cross-flow quenching when manufacturing microfibers lie in a more production-reliable manner with fewer yarn breaks.
The new systems are scheduled to begin manufacturing in early 2021.
