Italian regular customer places larger order with Oerlikon Neumag

Oerlikon Neumag received an order for a bi-component staple fibre plant from a long-time regular customer in Italy. The order comprises of a plant for the production of sheath/core fibres made of polyester, polypropylene and polyethylene. Commissioning is scheduled for the second half of 2017

“The investment is being made in the scope of a planned extension of our customer’s staple fibre production capacities,” explains Gerrit van Loenen, the staple fibre sales director responsible for this project. “As a total solution provider, we were able to convince our customer with our technology.”

Years of experience in bi-component spinning

Oerlikon Neumag looks back on several years of experience in building bicomponent staple fibre plants. The first plant for this type of fibre was already put into operation in 1995. Oerlikon Neumag offers solutions for various fibre cross-sections including “sheath/core”, “side-by-side”, “island in the sea” as well as “orange type” and “trilobal”. The applications are manifold, covering self-crimping fibres, binding fibres, as well as super-micro fibres and hollow fibres.

The Oerlikon Neumag bi-component staple fibre technology is characterized in particular by very robust nozzle packages, which do not have any expensive wearing parts, which in turn significantly reduces costs in this sector. The processing costs when cleaning the nozzle packages are kept to a minimum. In addition, there is also the possibility of a separate temperature control in the spinning beam for the two polymers. The quality and viscosity of the polymers can thus be adapted exactly according to process requirements.
