Neumünster, Remscheid, March 18, 2024 – At SaigonTex from April 10 to 13, 2024 in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, the Oerlikon Business Unit Manmade Fibers Solutions will be presenting complete solutions from a single source. At the Saigon Exhibition and Convention Center, the machine manufacturer’s experts will be providing information about their sustainable machine and system technologies at the Illies Engineering Vietnam Co., Ltd. representative stand in Hall A, Stand 1J-01.

Trade visitors will be able to get an overview of complete solutions that include everything from polycondensation systems to textured yarn and digital solutions. The supply of all process steps from a single source promises coordinated technology, the design of which ensures the high quality of the yarn produced. Sustainability is another focus of information. Oerlikon Polymer Processing Solutions and partners such as Oerlikon Barmag Huitong Engineering (OBHE) will be presenting concrete concepts for topics such as mechanical and chemical technologies for recycling bottles, as well as textiles, biopolymers and the circular economy. The company has been offering innovative solutions for the textile industry for 20 years with its sustainability label e-save.

EvoSteam – sustainable production of staple fibersThe EvoSteam process from Oerlikon Neumag is the future for more sustainable staple fiber production. It offers impressive savings in energy, water and raw material consumption, as well as a reduction in operating costs (OPEX) and the CO2 footprint – while at the same time providing excellent fiber quality for downstream processes and high production volumes.

DTY yarns – uncompromising quality and maximum flexibility Clothing, home textiles, automotive – there are countless applications for textured yarns. Oerlikon Barmag offers a wide range of different DTY machine configurations for the efficient and sustainable production of high-quality textured yarns made of various polymers, from polyester and polyamide to polypropylene, PLA and PTT. With sophisticated components, know-how and proven technology, the modular DTY machines – whether manual or automatic – produce textured yarns for excellent further processing in downstream processes at optimum OPEX costs.

Recycling is the futureOBHE’s homogenizing technology stands for the mechanical recycling of processed polyester waste such as post-industrial waste (popcorn), bottle flakes and film. The Oerlikon Barmag homogenizer ensures a homogeneous melt, influences the viscosity increase and thus makes it possible to produce defined rPET pre-products for further processing, such as melt, pellets or fiber material for direct spinning. The first plants have already been successfully commissioned worldwide.
