The efficient BCF S8 carpet yarn system in Monocolor and Tricolor versions will be presented by Oerlikon Neumag, a brand of the Manmade Fibers segment of Oerlikon Management AG, Pfäffikon/Switzerland, at this year's Domotex Asia/Chinafloor from March 24-26, 2021 in Shanghai/China.
Whether Monocolor or Tricolor, with up to 700 filaments/thread, the BCF S8 significantly outperforms its sister, the BCF S+ (400 filaments), also guaranteeing finer titers of up to 2.5 dpf. Furthermore, the process speed of the new Witras III-37 winder is higher than before at 3,700 m/min – and provides increased throughput of up to 15% in comparison to previous technologies. The bottom line is a system efficiency of 99%, as well as possible energy savings of up to 5%/kg of yarn.
From a mélange to strict separation – the trend towards multiple colors for carpets goes on. The options for differentiating product for carpet yarn manufacturers are improved with the BCF S8 due to even more flexible color mixture versions. More than 200,000 different color shades derived from 3 colors are provided by the core component of the process, the new patent-pending CPC-T (Color Pop Compacting unit).
