A number of textile companies are planning to invest in producing chemical staple fibers in 2011, with companies in China, India, and the South East Asian region at the forefront. This decision comes after it was found in a study that from 2009 until 2019, the average growth for worldwide mill demand of PET staple fibers (PSF) is expected to be 4% per year resulting in a total of 19 million tons in 2019. The staple fiber producers d to differentiate themselves by product quality to serve specific customer needs in the downstream process such as a higher strength of the fibers for a better processing on the ring spinning machines. The operating expenses in the production of PSF include power, steam, other utilities, spare parts, and labor. A considerable saving in operating costs can be achieved with higher capacity production lines.

With the switch from the small lines of 100 tons/day each to one 300 ton/day line for staple fiber production, a leading producer in Asia has reduced its production costs by 25-30%. A solid track record of manufacturing high capacity staple fiber lines and experience in customized engineering solutions, were the factors to partner with Oerlikon Neumag. The strong cooperation as a team between both parties made a successful solution possible within a limited building space and tight schedule. This cooperation is an example of how a long term partnership evolves.

Airlaid at your service - Oerlikon Neumag Airlaid Technology is based on the patents of Karl Kroyer and M&J. - The most common Airlaid lines are designed for mainly hygiene- and tabletop applications: the "full- swing" line can do all, but has to do a lot to run feasible. - Airlaid is capable to process may raw-materials not yet discovered as a raw material for high-value (niche) products. - Work in progress: the recent development at Neumag proves focus on both flexibility and cost-reduction. - Green and sustainable production is possible with Airlaid!

The polyester market has witnessed a significant replacement of PA6 BCF and PET spun yarn with PET BCF and PTT BCF. PTT and PET possess very good permanent anti-soiling and anti-stain properties. PET is colored either by masterbatches (spin-colored) in the extrusion, or by dyeing or printing the carpet after heatsetting. The subsequent coloring of fibers is typically performed using disperse dye and is possible, without great effort, for light to medium colors. PET is usually delivered in an amorphous form, so that a crystallizer is required before the PET dryer. Amorphous PET is mostly clear and gray in a UV light and the typical viscosity of PET raw material is between 0.62 and 0.8 iV, which make it possible to achieve high strengths more easily. Many components, such as the extruder, spinneret design, spin finish unit, draw unit, and texturing, have been specially and intensely optimized to meet the requirements of PET yarn manufacturing.
