Once again, the combination of the ITMA ASIA + CITME is this year the most important trade fair event for the textile machine sector. For the fourth time since 2008, the trade fair will be taking place in China’s megacity of Shanghai, this year from 16th to 20th of June at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre (SNIEC). Under the motto ‘From Melt to Yarn’, Oerlikon Manmade Fibers will be exhibiting in Hall W3, Stand F01 with its Oerlikon Barmag and Oerlikon Neumag brands.
In the fiftieth year of its partnership with the Chinese textile industry, Oerlikon Manmade Fibers is celebrating this extraordinary anniversary with all its guests at its trade fair stand. The company has been supplying China with manmade fiber spinning plants for half a century now.
The managers at the for-mer Barmer Maschinenfabrik AG, or ‘Barmag’ in short, in Remscheid, Germany, hence laid the foun-dations back in the mid-1960s for the currently excellent business relations with the world’s largest manufacturers of polyester and polyamide. Neumag followed soon after.
The focus of the trade fair attendance of the world's leading manmade fiber manufacturing solutions provider is the entire process chain: From Melt to Yarn, Oerlikon Manmade Fibers accompanies yarn manufacturers with innovative technologies and sophisticated services. Here, environmentally-friendly and sustainable, e-save certified solutions are in the foreground.
“We will be presenting the trade au-dience with several innovations focusing on the topic of manmade fiber yarn manufacturing, both in the service sector and in the form of concrete exhibits”, announces André Wissenberg, Head of Mar-keting, Corporate Communications and Public Affairs. He continues by promising: “Our engineers and market experts are looking forward to avidly talking to our customers from across the world.”

In concrete terms, the showcased product portfolio will range from continuous polycondensation systems (CP), state-of-the-art methods for environmentally-friendly direct spin-dyeing using the 3DD mixer technology all the way through to the very latest high-speed winders for POY, HOY, FDY, IDY and BCF processes. In addition to exhibiting spinning pumps, the company will also be focusing on production solutions for nonwovens and for specialty yarns.
“Once again, we will be deploying virtual reality at our trade fair stand: in our virtual showroom, we will be displaying our technologies in 3D, hence taking visitors on a journey through our systems and machines”, explains marketing expert Rickey Steele, who will be accompanying customers through virtual worlds during allfive days of the trade fair.
WINGS POY 1800 boosts yarn production by another 20 percent
Oerlikon Barmag has set a new benchmark for the efficient production of polyester fibers with its new yarn winder WINGS POY 1800. The new winding unit boosts productivity by another 20 percent using virtually the same amount of production space as the previous model. “With WINGS POY 1800, we are once again underscoring our technological leadership in the area of filament spinning. We will use this technology to sustainably bolster our market share of more than 40 percent in the manmade fiber machinery industry”, says Stefan Kross, CEO of Oerlikon’s Manmade Fibers Segment.
Compared to its predecessor model, WINGS POY 1800 can accommodate twelve bobbins instead of the previous ten bobbins which required highly sophisticated technical developments. “With WINGS POY 1800, we are writing another chapter in our success story and moving even further ahead of our competitors. Unlike any other spinning products in the marketplace, WINGS delivers efficient and profitable filament production, while supplying the highest level of yarn quality,” comments Stefan Kross.
The Winding INtegrated Godet Solution, or WINGS, is highly user-friendly, groundbreaking equipment that requires more than 30 percent less space. Oerlikon Barmag introduced WINGS POY to the market in 2007, ushering in a totally new dimension to manmade fiber spinning. More than 14,000 WINGS units for the POY and FDY yarn types have been sold since market introduction.
