DOMOTEX Asia / CHINAFLOOR 2016
Manufacturing PA6 BCF specialties more profitably
At this year’s DOMOTEX Asia / CHINAFLOOR trade show, Oerlikon Neumag will be presenting its diverse range of products and services in Hall W3, Stand H01. The international trade will be meeting in Shanghai at the Asia-Pacific region’s most important trade show for flooring between March 22 and 24. The focus of the Oerlikon Neumag stand will be on solutions for the efficient manufacture of carpet yarns.
The exemplary success of the S+ BCF system over many years clearly shows that there is also a focus on efficiency in BCF yarn manufacturing. Since being launched in 2011, the S+ is the world’s big-gest-selling BCF system, efficiently manufacturing high-end BCF yarns across the globe.
The S+ offers superlative performance in terms of efficiency
The three-end S+ convinces not just with its 99% efficiency and its resulting cost savings in terms of raw materials, it also covers a very broad spectrum of producible total titers ranging from 700 to 4000 dtex. Furthermore, the multipolymer systems can be used without modifications to process all polymers, from polyester and polypropylene all the way through to polytrimethylene terephthalic (PTT). The product program is complemented by the single-end Sytec One, which is convincing particularly in the specialties segment with its superlative yarn quality and high degree of flexibility.
Trend towards high-end yarns with fine filament titers
Due to consumer behavior in the flooring segment, the Asian market has to date been considered a small market with a strong focus on contract products. However, there seems to be turnaround taking place here: high-end PA6 yarns with fine single filament titers are increasingly in demand. The rea-sons for this are generally believed to be the extremely low price of oil and the newly-established PA6 capacities in Asia, causing a price fall of approx. 30% for PA6 granulate in the last six months alone. “The current market conditions particularly in China have resulted in low prices for PA6. In turn, this has created an extremely interesting new market for high-quality carpets. Our systems are particularly well-positioned in the premium-price segment, which explains the currently stronger interest in our systems especially within the Chinese market”, comments Alfred Czaplinski, Sales Manager BCF.
Domotex Hanover, Germany, as a promising herald of things to come
Oerlikon Neumag was also satisfied with the four lively trade fair days in Hanover in the middle of January. With order contracts in the tens of millions of euros signed – predominantly within the European, US-American and Chinese markets – the volume of orders received within the context of the Domotex show in Hanover was unexpectedly good.
Partnering for Performance
In addition to the machinery portfolio, Oerlikon Manmade Fibers Segment will also be showcasing its expanded range of services under its ‘Partnering for Performance’ motto. With high-performance local operations in China, our Customer Service offers customer not only fast provision of original OEM-quality parts, it also supports its Chinese customers with maintenance, repairs, training sessions and seminars, process consultation and numerous additional services. This guarantees that yarn manufacturers are able to profitably operate their systems in the long term.
With regards to process optimization, Industrie 4.0 solutions will soon also be available as a retrofit package for already installed systems.
