The air-texturing machine DP5-T by SSM is designed for the flexible production of high-quality air-jet textured yarns. It offers a lot of possibilities in terms of lot sizes and types and counts of yarns. The Turkish synthetic yarn manufacturer Turktex, Bursa/Turkey, is renowned for its huge portfolio of yarns. With the DP5-T of SSM, based in Wädenswil/Switzerland, a subsidiary of the Rieter Group, Winterthur/Switzerland, large assortments with short lead time can be handled.
The air-texturing machine DP5-T can process all types of continuous filament yarns like polyester (PET), polyamide (PA), polypropylene (PP) or glass. All the different forms like fully drawn yarn (FDY), fully oriented yarn (FOY) or partially oriented yarn (POY) can also be processed to a large range of yarns for a wide variety of applications. Depending on the targeted count range, 2 versions are available: the DP5-TF for fine to medium counts and the DP5-T for fine to coarse counts. The operation of the machine and changing raw material is easy.

Turktex is committed to innovation. With a dedicated internal textile research and development department, the company offers innovative products, responding to the ever-changing needs of the market. In 2020, the company acquired the SSM texturing machine DP5-T to meet the demand in air-textured yarn made of PET and PP. It then invested in a DP5-FT false twist-texturing machine to drive business in the drawn textured yarn (DTY) market.

The DP5-T makes it easy to switch between recipes, an indispensable feature for Turktex as it responds fast to the needs of its customers. The company stores approx. 1,000 different recipes in its DP5-T machines and changes around every other second day the settings of the spindles. With its individual drive concept, the texturing machines make it easy to switch between recipes. Any recipe can be removed and put back into production without any quality or repeatability issues.
The size of batches is another critical factor. While standard batches in the industry are usually above 2 tons, Turktex handles many small orders, as low as 50 kg. With its individual drive concept, the DP5-T is fast, flexible and easy to use which allows the company to produce smaller batches, very quickly and with the desired quality.
