Feed systems Godet feed unit The single driven godet feed unit as being used in G1, G2 and G2x has been derived as a principle from POY spinning. It has been introduced by Oerlikon Barmag in DTY machines in 2003. Optimized for the DTY process, it quickly convinced where highest requirements for yarn processing were key. The stress-free yarn transport offers advantages for both sides of the product spectrum. When producing fine denier products with high number of filaments, it ensures higher yarn quality and extended yarn evenness over time. Friction-intensive products such as full dull or spun dyed, that usually quickly wear down those components they are in contact with, are processed with greater efficiency and at lower production costs. This is firstly due to non-existent slippage and secondly due to the godet itself, which makes additional yarn-guiding elements or wear-reducing components such as yarn displacement in the yarn path, superfluous.

Shaft feed unit The centrally driven shaft feed system at W3 fulfills all the basic requirements for processing even delicate products from all kind of polymers. Yarn feed takes place in conjunction with nip rollers or – if required – aprons. For easy handling and maintenance, nip rollers are equipped with intermediate stop as well as quick release. With selection of latest materials the lifetime of coats are improved, which – influences maintenance cycles positively – reduces down time – increases machine efficiency The feed unit W3 is standardly equipped with a yarn displacement system to reduce wear on coats.

Other general advantages of godets include higher consistency over process time and from position to position as well as potentially lower energy consumption. By using godets energy savings of up to 5% can be achieved.

Pneumatic String up solution In order to string-up the machine, proper placement of the yarn in the heater and cooling are of importance. As standard, Oerlikon Barmag offers the eAFK with pneumatic string-up equipped with quick release function swivel arms that allow easy push in & out of twist stop rollers and yarn guides. The pneumatic string-up solution uses compressed air to move the function swivel arm into the top position by deploying a magnetic sledge, which also secures the positioning when in place. Easy operation by push buttons on each string up position make the pneumatic string up as operatorfriendly and process secure as possible.

Heater / Cooling combinations Defining the right heater/cooling combination for a certain production range is the best option for optimizing production. There are technological and physical limits to be considered. Technological limits depending on yarn product are: • Surging • Yarn tension • Desired yarn quality

Physical limits depending on yarn product are: • Heat transfer of heating system • Heat transfer of cooling system • Friction

Depending on product titer and number of filaments, the choice of heating in conjunction with cooling components can either improve the yarn quality or optimize the process speed – or even both. A further high-impact effect of choosing the right option is the potential energy saving. Apart from optimizing the production, the energy saving reduces the total manufacturing cost, depending on the choice of heater. In today’s demanding market, production optimization can be the difference between making profit or a loss. Oerlikon Barmag’s experience, technology, components and cross-sections provide our customers with the possibility of freely selecting the cross-section that allows ideal production, depending on product – lowcost manufacturing of high quality products with the greatest-possible process efficiency – eAFK!

Heating solutions

First heater Dowtherm* Dowtherm contact heaters have been successfully used in Oerlikon Barmag machines for over 30 years now and are – even today – state-of-the-art technology, particularly for multi and microfilaments. Anti-wear nitrated surfaces, deep V profile and special pinches for preventing yarn heat-outs result in high yarn cleanness, extremely even crimping and excellent dye uptake for the textured yarn. Oerlikon Barmag Dowtherm heaters are open close heaters for easier operation and maintenance, equipped with manually closing doors. They are available in various lengths suitable for processing different ranges of products. Depending on the product portfolio customers can optimize their production with the right selection and combination of heater and cooling component. The correct selection of these components can influence – production speed and capacity – energy consumption – yarn quality

HTI The HTI high-temperature heater makes it possible to achieve high speeds coupled with excellent yarn qualities due to stable yarn path and uniform heat transfer. The 1 m long heater consists of two heating zones that, equipped with special exchangeable inserts – developed and patented by Oerlikon Barmag – enable fast and simple replacement during standard maintenance work.

*Dowtherm is a trademark of Dow Chemical This increases overall machine efficiency by minimizing idle machine time resulting from maintenance and cleaning. The inserts are cleaned outside the machine, hence eliminating the customary problems associated with heater cleaning. Inserts are available for both heating zones, either with pinches or as full contact inserts. Different inserts can be combined for optimization of the process, catering to the special needs of highly critical products. Due to its design, the Oerlikon Barmag HTI heater has significantly lower energy consumption in comparison to its Dowtherm cousin. This - combined with significant potential process speed increase – makes the HTI heater is a worthwhile alternative investment consideration.

Tube Cooling tubes have been developed by Oerlikon Barmag in response to rising requirements in downstream texturing in regard to process speed and friction. By using specially treated tubes Oerlikon Barmag developed cooling components that cover a wide range of products, eliminate cool-outs and offer improved process speeds due to reduced texturing zone length. The tubes are cooled by ambient air, but can also be connected to an air conditioning system to increase their cooling effect – so called active cooling – for an even wider range of applications.

Twist insertion

Oerlikon Barmag has apart from the early days of texturing machinery always focused on friction disc units as the most advantageous and flexible form of twist insertion. Using different types of friction working discs as well as specially developed inlet and outlet discs the friction units can be adapted to any kind of product for optimal production. For eAFK the standard is the Oerlikon Barmag friction aggregate type 8E, which has been developed to fulfill the highest quality demands within the texturing process. Using synergies within the Oerlikon Textile group the open close friction aggregate FTS 53 has been mutually developed with Oerlikon Textile Components. Both friction aggregates share the same single driven housing, are interchangeable and as such provide customers additional flexibility for optimization of process.

Both texturing units have the following characteristics in common: • • • • • • • • •

High flexibility for a wide range of products – from fine 20 denier up to coarse denier of 600 den Designed for a maximum stacking of 10 discs with 9 mm thickness or 13 discs with 6 mm thickness Elastic and muffled high-speed bearings for extra low vibration at high speeds (up to 22,000 rpm) Low noise level Low variation of disc speed Lower energy consumption No displacement of texturing unit and entrance guide at S/Z switching Easy reversal of twist direction Easy removal of friction unit for maintenance purposes

The individually driven type 8E texturing unit comprises a fixed center design, which adds to the general characteristics, extraordinary sturdiness and lifetime evenness.

The aggregate FTS 53 simplifies string-up as a result of its open-close function. When placing the yarn into the aggregate, it can be single-handedly opened and closed once the yarn is secured in the center. Thus, it potentially improves string-up of very sensitive or complicated yarns.

Quality management system

With rising quality requirements, the demand for online quality monitoring systems is also increasing. The target is not only monitoring the draw-texturing process, but also improving the overall process and increasing machine efficiency. With Oerlikon Barmag’s online quality monitoring, products that do not meet set quality standards are easily identified, withdrawn from the production process and replaced by yarn that meets the quality requirements. Hence, machine efficiency is increased – valuable machine time is not used to process yarn that does not meet the required standards!

Fibrevision Unitens The UNITENS concept in the latest generation of the unique combination of floating mean value, peak detection and CV evaluation, results in the highest standards in online yarn quality control, statistics, quality and plant management. As an integral part of the eAFK, UNITENS offers - in addition to the basic yarn quality evaluation and quality grading of the produced yarn - essential data for the highest doffing performance, the best machine service and maintenance, all resulting in the highest machine efficiency and productivity. The sophisticated, but easy-to-handle UNITENS can be combined with Oerlikon Barmag’s Plant Operation Center (POC) software networking solution as well as with our CreelManager system.

CreelManager The close link between UNITENS quality evaluation and Oerlikon Barmag’s CreelManager opens up – for the very first time – the possibility of production and classification of knot-free yarn packages, especially advantageous in conjunction with the automatic doffing function of the eAFK. The UNITENS system connected with the CreelManager represents a milestone in modern quality monitoring. The package quality information is considerably improved, which creates competitive advantages for manufacturers. With the help of special sensors in the creel, the UNITENS system is provided with information about supply package change. Hence, this information - with the knowledge about the supply package - can trace issues back as far as individual spinning positions, which for the first time allows operators to monitor not only the performance of the DTY machine, but also of the prior production step in POY spinning. The objective of the system is to integrate the entire process chain into a total quality system (TQM). eAFK – Oerlikon Barmag

Intermingling

Intermingling of yarn and there especially the number and regularity of the intermingling knots are one of the prerequisites for high end downstream operation. Oerlikon Barmag in close cooperation with world renowned brands for intermingling jets offers with the eAFK machine a wide range of intermingling possibilities throughout the process. Intermingling is an option that depending on downstream requirement has to be discussed.

Pre-intermingling While processing fine denier and especially highlychallenging microfiber with high number of filaments, pre-intermingling can be an attractive solution for improving the quality of the final yarn, overcoming manufacturing problems and increasing overall machine performance. Furthermore special products manufactured with special intermingling jets can create competitive advantages. The eAFK machine offers the possibility for implementing the intermingling piping required for pre-intermingling at the first feed. Intermingling Regular and high quality intermingling is crucial to success especially for downstream weaving applications and here for warp yarns. To achieve the best-possible intermingling, the Oerlikon Barmag eAFK includes the so-called intermingling zone upstream to the secondary heater. It comprises two feed systems (G2 and the additional G2x) that allow stable and controlled yarn processing within a defined 14

eAFK – Oerlikon Barmag

area. The integrated intermingling piping, equipped with straight couplings, offers easy handling and operation of the respective jets. Detorque In the event that customers wish to produce close to zero torque yarn without the need to ply yarns, Oerlikon Barmag offers a detorque intermingling system for the eAFK. Located between the secondary heater and the third feed unit the intermingling piping can be equipped with special jets that create a yarn that is not completely without torque, but with minimal torque. Detorque works only with PET and requires a set heater. It is an alternative to plying yarns, which reduces the takeup capacity of the respective DTY machine by half (for 2-ply), in the event that the yarn is plied on conventional rather than Multispindle machines.


Take up zone Oiling solution – single deck The application of oil is important for smooth operation throughout most processes within the textile process chain. Depending on the downstream setup, a certain amount of oil may be required for higher efficiency and less disruptions. Oil applied in one step of process is usually consumed or eliminated during the following process step, only again to be applied if required in the next step. For some products and downstream processes, oil is particularly undesirable, as in the case of dyeing applications, for instance. Respectively, a certain technical flexibility must be considered. The location of the oiling device, the form of oil application and the polymer type can influence the process and are therefore important for efficient operation and high-quality production.

Single deck oiling is standard for the eAFK. Small and tightly covered oil troughs are located in front of each take-up deck. The latest-technology application rollers with a V groove along the yarn path apply the oil depending on stepfree setting of rotation speed. This solution allows the most accurate oil application, while simultaneously eliminating staining caused by potential oil mist.

Pneumatically actuated, the yarn is either being lifted out of the oil applicator during doffing for oilfree transfer tails or can be fixed in this position for completely oil-free packages (e.g dye packages). The eAFK with single deck oiling provides the most even process conditions from package to package as well as from deck to deck, thus improving the overall production quality.

Take up solutions

With the further development of downstream processes, the requirements for the DTY package constantly increasing. The best-possible package formation and the related unwinding performance are decisive criteria for efficient manufacturing with up-to-date technology. As standard, the eAFK is equipped with ATT (Advanced Take-up Technology), the latest technology for advanced density controlled package formation, in conjunction with an automatic doffing unit.

ATT – Advanced Take up Technology The quantum leap in package building technology comes with a single-position drive solution, fewer mechanical components and computer-control of every single stroke throughout the package formation, providing significant benefits for the manufacturer and for the product itself. Furthermore, ATT allows for special solutions, such as unique flexibility in package geometry or quality indicating marking of packages, which have – until now – been impossible using mechanical take-up units. The individual position drives in process and maintenance increase the flexibility during production and prevent unnecessary machine downtimes. A significant lower noise level and a reduced number of mechanical parts, easy maintenance and improved accessibility round off the mechanical improvements achieved by ATT. Another highlight is the control of yarn tension during winding. In detail, this means the yarn tension profile during winding cycle can be preselected in order to • actively control the decrease in winding tension • gradually lower the decrease in winding tension even down to a constant winding tension • higher package weight • even package density • prevention of yarn damage by reduced initial winding tension • unique features for winding dye packages A further feature is the choice of various take-up programs with an individual calculation of each stroke for even yarn distribution over the entire width of the package as well as uniform pressure distribution on the tube.

IAD – Individual Automatic Doffer The further-improved individual automatic doffer of the eAFK is the culmination of Oerlikon Barmag’s experience in automatic doffing. Reliable doffing performance to ensure the highestpossible machine efficiency is the result of a sturdy take-up section in low-vibration design combined with Oerlikon Barmag’s CPC (contact pressure control) bobbin lever system. Adjustable for different package densities, it allows in conjunction with the Oerlikon Barmag TUP (Take-up Processor) - the best-possible package formation with excellent take-off performance. During the doffing procedure, waste injector systems transport waste yarn into easily accessible bins located on the creel side of the machine. Apart from the considerably reduced noise level due to use of the ATT system in the take-up section, the basic functionality of the IAD is the production of packages of uniformly-metered length. Two parking positions, in conjunction with one further full package in production, allow unattended operation for longer periods of time, depending on yarn titer. The eAFK take-up solution with ATT and IAD provides • Positions: up to 288 pos • CPC bobbin lever system • Winding of taper-ended packages with nominal taper angles of 65°- 90° • Max. package diameter - 250 mm • Basic (max.) traverse stroke length - 250 mm (273 mm) • Max. double strokes per minute ≤800 • Package formation • Traverse drive with ribbon breaking unit as well as with scattering system variable for highest process speeds • Automatic doffing • Two parking positions

Cross sections… Although the eAFK allows a high flexibility in conjunction with components, some cross-sections have proven to be the most suitable options for certain products and processes. For processing of fine to mid or mid denier with high number of filaments, the V cross-section has been most successful. When processing such yarns, length of texturing zone, suitable heating-cooling combination and friction are to be considered. Various combinations are available using Dowtherm and HTI heater technology. For mid to coarse denier depending on number of filaments and final product requirement V or M crosssection can be selected. V type is more suitable for the mid, whereas M type is clearly more suitable for coarse denier with low number of filaments. When selecting the components required for such product portfolio also the right choice of feed system has to be put into consideration. For coarse to heavy denier the M type upper structure is the most suitable crosssection for processing products with high denier per filament and total denier. As feed system shaft with nip roller due to draw forces implemented by coarse products has to be selected. The eAFK is designed to process all kinds of polymers in best possible manner. For polymers that typically do not require heat setting such as PA or PP can similarly well processed on the following cross-sections by minor changes to the machine: the secondary heater is being substituted with yarn guiding elements.

Dowtherm* upper structures Fine to conventional denier, versatility, process speed, PET/PA/PP/PTT/PLA eAFK standard: V 2.0 DT/ 1.1 P The most versatile conventional cross-section using Dowtherm heater technology. Comprising a 2.0 m heater in combination with a 1.1 cooling plate this V cross-section combines versatility and a wide operational window. It is suitable for most commodities in a range between 30 to 300 den with best operational range between 50 and 220 den. Comprising the straight yarn path of the V cross-section low tension and high draw ratios can be achieved resulting in excellent manufacturing speeds, making this cross-section a standard in the industry.

eAFK coolflex: V 1.5 DT/ 0.8 T The coolflex upper structure is optimized for processing very fine denier or products with very low filament count by means of a shorter Dowtherm heater in combination with a 0.8 m cooling tube. The 1.5 m heater allows energy savings of up to 15% in comparison to the 2.0 m version. The 0.8 m cooling tube provides increased cooling capacity on shorter length and can be further optimized according to product requirement by adjusting the wrapping angle. This results in an operational window that especially favors fine denier and allows to process products even down to 20 den at even higher process speeds than the standard cross section.

eAFK Multispindle: V 2.0 DT/ 1.1 P x 2 The Multispindle upper structure allows processing double the number of yarn ends for production of non-torque yarns in a product range of fine to mid denier with low to conventional filament count. While plying yarns on conventional machines the take-up capacity is reduced by half, thus increasing the number of yarn ends for treatment before being plied doubles the take-up capacity. Prerequisite for such processing is the limitation of single yarn ends to 220 den considering the final denier of the plied yarn. This results in an operational window that favors fine to mid denier including low single filament yarns.

Improved processing of plied fine to mid denier yarns is achieved by… – doubling the number of yarn ends per heater – doubling the number of cooling plates – doubling the number of texturing positions Suitable for micro filament yarns and fine to mid denier, opening operational window for plied products

HTI upper structures Optimized operation window and versatility, highest process speed, PET/PP/PTT/PLA eAFK HTI: V 1.0 HT/ 1.75 P To widen the operation window the electrical HTI heater can be used. With its temperature range of up to 550°C in addition to flexibility provided by Barmag’s patented insert technology it allows to process yarns at potentially higher process speeds. In order to compensate for the temperature increase the cooling capacity has to be adapted proportionally. The conventional HTI version comprises a 1.75 m cooling plate which provides a cooling capacity that allows to process fine to mid denier at highest possible process speeds. Versatility for efficient and high quality production at highest process speeds is achieved by… – – – –

eAFK HTI coolflex 1.0/1.2 active: V 1.0 HT/ 1.2 T To further widen the operation window the HTI heater is paired with Barmag’s cooling tube technology, that while shortening the texturing zone increases the cooling capacity beyond the capacity of the 1.75 m plate for the most demanding products. The ambient air cooling effect can be boosted with activation of air conditioned cooling thus allowing to optimally process products with different processing requirements flexibly and by elimination of all bottle necks with the highest possible process speed exceeding the conventional HTI version.

Versatility for efficient and high quality production at highest process speeds is achieved by… – increased heating capacity – increased cooling capacity with active air cooling option – opening the operational window while shortening the texturing zone to 2.2 m – straight yarn path Suitable for fine to mid and coarse denier in the range of 30 – 300 den with an optimized operational window

eAFK HTI coolflex 1.0/0.8 active: V 1.0 HT/ 0.8 T Similarly to the Dowtherm heater coolflex version the HTI heater can be paired with the shorter cooling tube of 0.8 m length. Although decreasing the cooling capacity limits the operation window the shortening of the texturing zone leads to optimization for very fine denier and super micro yarns. The limitation is partially compensated with the also in this version available active cooling technology.

The POC simplifies the workflow - the “Recipe Management” module (Bild TEX Recipe Management.tif)

The POC Job Reports gives us an up-to-date and exact summary of all manufacturing jobs in the line. The summary includes information on both, complete manufacturing jobs and those still running. These informations are refreshed with each doff and for each package, respectively. Consequently, they are very precise at any time. The corresponding views show the current information per job, per machine and per position. As an option the POC interface to ERP can be used to forward the data of already finished manufacturing jobs to a customer ERP system.

The POC Recipe Management provides a central plant wide management of recipes. With the POC Recipe Management machine settings can be stored and transferred to recipes. Those recipes can be archived, printed, validated, edited, and then downloaded back to any machine connected. The Recipe Management automatically checks, if the desired set of information matches the physical arrangement. The POC Recipe Management has to be part of the system, if a connection to ERP (e.g. SAP) systems will be implemented, as it is the interface between an order/offering system and the real process settings for the machines.

Upstream processes Consulting, engineering, plant construction and high-tech machinery – the whole package from a single source. Many years of experience in textile machine construction and Oerlikon Textile’s strong global network form a solid basis and the perfect prerequisites for Oerlikon Barmag as a solutions provider. Plant engineering The growing demand for engineering services particularly from various newcomers to the fiber/filament manufacturing and processing sector - has resulted in the setting up of an Oerlikon Barmag-internal engineering division. A harmonized chain of polycondensation, spinning and texturing machines allows efficient production which results in an increase of added value for the customer. Furthermore, Oerlikon Barmag will cater for a harmonization of all machines and lines in an optimal way and will provide the respective know-how.

Polycondensation systems The quality of raw materials is a decisive factor in the quality of the final product. Only vertically-integrated companies control all levels of the value-added chain, all others are reliant on their suppliers. With Oerlikon Barmag polycondensation, the yarn producer will reduce dependencies and will be able to determine the characteristics of the raw material. With more than 80 years of experience, Oerlikon Barmag knows the requirements of filament spinners and converts them into process-optimized systems concepts. POY spinning With more than 30,000 spinning units supplied in the last 10 years, POY systems are the most successful Oerlikon Barmag product. Several decades of continuous research and development today allow all customers to produce the most varied POY filaments efficiently and cost effectively. Oerlikon Barmag POY systems supply the best package quality and thus guarantee the highest pull-off speeds and an excellent dyeability of standard titers, microfilaments and high-count yarns.
