Feed systems Shaft The centrally driven shaft feed system fulfils all basic requirements for processing even delicate products of all kinds of polymers. Yarn feed takes place in combination with nip rollers or – if required – aprons. For easy handling and maintenance nip rollers are equipped with intermediate stop as well as quick release.

Godet The single driven godet feed unit as a principle was derived from POY spinning. It was 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 friction less yarn transport offers advantages for both sides of the product spectrum.

For optimal clamping without tension increase W2 and W2x are executed with an additional separator roller.

When producing fine denier products with a high number of filaments, it ensures higher yarn quality and extended yarn evenness over time.

With the selection of the latest materials the lifetime of cots are improved, which positively: –– Influences maintenance cycles –– Reduces down time –– Increases machine efficiency When choosing shafts as yarn feed units for the eFK, the machine will be equipped with yarn displacement system to reduce wear on cots. All eFK machines equipped with a shaft W3 as standard.

Friction intensive products like full dull or spun dyed, that usually wear down components fast, are processed with higher efficiency and at lower production cost. This is due to nonexistent friction and the godet itself, which makes additional yarn guiding elements or wear reducing components like yarn displacement in the yarn path superfluous. Other general advantages of godets are a higher consistency over process time and from position to position, as well as lower energy consumption. By use of godets an energy saving of up to 5% can be achieved.

String up solution In order to string up the machine proper placement of the yarn in the heater and cooling are of importance. For the eFK, Oerlikon Barmag offers a manual as well as a pneumatic solution. Both solutions are equipped with quick release function swivel arms, that allow easy push in and out of twist stop rollers and yarn guides. Manual The manual string up solution makes use of a pulley mechanism using a shaft to allow operators easy and correct placement of the function swivel arm into the top position. The shaft is secured against movement with a brake. Each position is equipped with one string up mechanism. Pneumatic The pneumatic string up solution uses compressed air to move the function swivel arm into the top position by use of 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 operator friendly and process secure as it can get.

Texturing zone Heater / Cooling combinations

Defining the right heater/cooling combination for a certain production range will optimize 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 selection of heating component in combination with cooling component can either improve the yarn quality or optimize

8

eFK – Oerlikon Barmag

the process speed – or both. An important side effect of this effort is the potential energy saving by selection of the heater. Apart from optimizing production, energy saving based on heater selection reduces total manufacturing cost. In today’s demanding market environmental optimization of production can be the difference between profit or loss. With the flexibility of the eFK to freely select most components in the machine, our customers are free to combine components that, depending on product, allow ideal production – low cost manufacturing of high quality products at highest possible efficiency – eFK!

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, equipped with special exchangeable inserts – developed and patented by Oerlikon Barmag – for fast and simple replacement during standard maintenance work. This increases overall machine efficiency by minimizing idle machine time due to maintenance and cleaning. The inserts are cleaned outside the machine, hence eliminating the standard problems associated with heater cleaning. Inserts are available for the heating zone with either pinches or as full contact insert. Different inserts can be combined for optimization of the process catering to special needs of highly critical products. Due to its design, the Oerlikon Barmag HTI heater shows significant lower energy consumption in comparison to Dowtherm. This combined with significant potential process

speed increase means the HTI heater is a worthwhile alternative to be considered for investments. Set heater Dowtherm* Dowtherm set heaters with tubes generate evenly set yarns and can be adapted in process by means of exchangeable tube inserts available in various designs– spiral pinched, half spiral pinched or flat. Depending on the process and product the Oerlikon Barmag developed solution allows yarn optimization in terms of loop-free yarns, a particularly important feature for multi- and microfilament yarns. The heater is 1.46 m in height and available in standard and low temperature execution for set treatment of highly critical yarns. Depending on machine execution secondary heaters can also be supplied in split type execution for differential production on either side of the machine. *Dowtherm is a trademark of Dow Chemical

Tube Cooling tubes have been developed by Oerlikon Barmag to answer rising requirements in downstream texturing in regard to process speed and friction. By use of specially coated tubes Oerlikon Barmag developed cooling components that cover a wide range of products, eliminate cool outs and offer

improved process speeds due to a reduced texturing zone length. The tubes are cooled by ambient air but can be connected to air conditioning to increase their cooling effect – so called active cooling – for an even wider range of applications.

Twist insertion

Oerlikon Barmag has always focused on friction disc units as the most advantageous and flexible form of twist insertion. By means of 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. The current Oerlikon Barmag friction aggregates type 8 and type 8E were developed to fulfill the highest quality demands within the texturing process. The two versions differ in the drive principle, i.e. in the unit bottom portion; type 8 has a tangential drive, while type 8E is individually driven by single motors.

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 (type 8: 450 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 18,000 rpm)

12

eFK – Oerlikon Barmag

Further advantages of the individually driven type 8E texturing unit are: –– Low noise level –– Low variation of disc speed –– Decreased 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 –– Special heavy denier modification kit available for processing of yarn up to 600 den


Quality management system

With rising quality requirements in the market demand for online quality monitoring systems is increasing. Not only to monitor the draw texturing process, but also to improve the overall process and increase machine efficiency. With Oerlikon Barmag’s online quality monitoring system, products that do not meet set quality standards are easily identified, taken out of production and replaced by yarn that meets the quality requirement. Hence machine efficiency is increased – valuable machine time is not used to process yarn that does not match the standard! Fibrevision Unitens The UNITENS concept, the second generation of the unique combination of floating mean value, peak detection and CV evaluation leads to the highest standard in online yarn quality control, statistics, quality and plant management. In addition to basic yarn quality evaluation and quality grading of produced yarn, UNITENS offers essential data for the best machine service and maintenance resulting in highest machine efficiency and productivity. The sophisticated but easy to handle UNITENS offers links to the Oerlikon Barmag network system POC and 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 manufacturing and classification of knot-free yarn packages. 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 our UNITENS system is provided with information about supply package change. Hence this information with the knowledge about the supply package can backtrack even to single spinning positions, which for the first time allows monitoring not only the performance of the DTY machine but also of the prior production step of POY spinning. The target of the system is to integrate the entire process chain into a total quality system (TQM).

Intermingling

Intermingling of yarn and 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 renown brands for intermingling jets offers, with the eFK machine, a wide range of intermingling possibilities throughout the process. Intermingling is an option that, depending on downstream requirements, has to be discussed.

Pre-intermingling When processing fine denier and especially highly demanding microfiber with a high number of filaments, pre-intermingling can be one solution to improve the quality of the final yarn, overcome manufacturing problems and increase overall machine performance. Other than that special products produced with special intermingling jets can create competitive advantages. The eFK machine offers the possibility to implement intermingling piping before the first feed, required for preintermingling. Intermingling Especially for downstream weaving applications and for warp yarns, regular and high quality intermingling is the key. To achieve that Oerlikon Barmag offers it’s customers the so called intermingling zone before the secondary heater, which

14

eFK – Oerlikon Barmag

consists of two feed systems. Piping is located in between intermingling, which with straight couplings offers easy handling and operation of the respective jets. Detorque In case our customers wish to produce close to zero torque yarn without having the need to ply yarns, Oerlikon Barmag offers detorque intermingling for the eFK. Located between the secondary heater and the third feed unit, intermingling piping can be equipped with special jets that create a yarn with only few remaining torque. The detorque process requires a set heater and applies exclusively to PET. It is an alternative to the plying of yarns, which would reduce the take up capacity of the respective DTY machine by half (for 2-ply), in case yarn is plied on standard instead of Multispindle machines.


Take up zone Oiling solutions

The application of oil is important for smooth operation throughout most processes of the textile chain. Depending on downstream, a certain amount of oil can be required for higher efficiency and less disruptions. Oil applied in one step of the process usually is 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, such as dyeing applications, oil is especially undesirable. Therefore a certain technical flexibility has to be considered. Mainly depending on polymer, oil application and especially the location of the oiling device itself within the yarn path become important for efficient operation and high quality production. Regardless of the implemented oiling solution, the eFK uses application rollers with a V groove along the yarn path with vertical grooves to allow easy removal of possible yarn wraps. This solution allows more accurate oil application while making the handling more operator friendly.

Central oiling – upper or lower deck oiling The typical basic oiling solution depends on the availability of a secondary heater in the machine configuration. If the end product of the texturing process is a set yarn, the oiling device has to be located between the third feed unit and the take up. This is usually in the lowest position of the eFK. Set yarns are typically PET yarns. For products that due to their physical properties do not require heat setting or due to the process it is not desired, a machine cross section without a secondary heater is usually selected. These machines produce so called HE-yarns (high elasticity). The polymer is typically either PA or PP. As there is no secondary heater and no third feed unit, the oiling is located on top of the take up after feed unit 2 or 2x.

For special applications both, the upper as well as the lower oiling maybe required in one machine. With the flexibility of the eFK this is easily accomplished. Single deck oiling Especially when processing PA yarns, even yarn tension is the key to quality production. To allow even process conditions from package to package as well as from deck to deck, the eFK offers the possibility to implement so called single deck oiling. In front of each take up deck an oiling device is located to ensure proper oil application for these demanding products. The single deck oiling can be implemented whether the machine cross section contains a secondary heater or not.

Take up solutions

With further development of downstream processes the requirements for the DTY package constantly increases. Best possible package formation and the related unwinding performance are key for efficient manufacturing with up to date technology. Oerlikon Barmag offers two take up solutions. The basic, proven and reliable camshaft take up for quality package formation as well as the high end solution for best possible package formation including density control - ATT (Advanced Take up Technology).

Camshaft Over the years Oerlikon Barmag has constantly worked on further development of our camshaft take up. The eFK improved low vibration take up section permits excellent package build. Uniform contact pressure is ensured by a spring/lever system that is adjustable for different package densities. The eFK control system allows the selection of a computer calculated package formation program, which allows best possible package winding, formation and unwinding performance for any type of yarn. Another highlight is the control of yarn tension during winding. In detail, this means the yarn tension profile during the 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 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. ATT – Advanced Take up Technology A quantum leap in package building technology comes with a single position drive solution, less 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 enables special solutions, such as unique flexibility in package geometry, which have, until now, been impossible using mechanical take up units. Individual position drives in process and maintenance increase the flexibility during production and prevent unnecessary machine downtime. 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. 16

eFK – Oerlikon Barmag

Technical specification: –– Positions: up to 288 pos –– Winding of taper-ended packages with nominal taper angles of 65°- 90° –– Max. package diameter – 250 mm –– Basic traverse stroke length: CAM -250 mm; ATT 250-273 mm (max) –– Max. double strokes per minute: CAM -600; ATT < 750 –– Package formation Traverse drive with ribbon breaking unit as well as with scattering system for up to 1000 m/min (Camshaft) or 1100 m/min (ATT) process speed. ATT FlexiDye Unleashing the unrivaled flexibility of the single stroke programmed ATT winding system, FlexiDye provides a combination of unique features for winding DTY dye packages of superior quality. FlexiDye packages are directly dyeable without the need for rewinding. The major benefits of FiexiDye are: –– Edge control: hard – even – soft –– Liquor flow optimized package shape (round edges) Cost savings are mainly possible due to: –– Economical utilization of dyeing system resources, which maintains competitiveness –– Improved feasibility for formerly critical yarns –– In most cases, rewinding, pre- or post-dyeing become superfluous –– Less packaging costs and less tubes –– Less waste –– Improved dye uniformity

Options Dynamic markets require special solutions for special products. To excel in these conditions, flexibility of manufacturer as well as machinery is a must. Special yarns are partially fashion influenced or for special applications. The flexibility of the eFK allows implementation of supplementary components for special processes in line with the machine’s feed concept.

Elasthan device Blending of elasthan with PET or PA yarns targeting improved comfort in the end product is becoming a standard application. Usually a two step process, the elasthan covering device for the eFK allows production of yarn and covering in one step, hugely improving the economy of the process. By covering yarns during the texturing process with elasthan, even better stability of the final yarn product can be achieved-beneficial for further downstream. The eFK elasthan covering device is an active unwinding device in line with the eFK drive concept for highest possible accuracy and best unwinding performance. Hot pins For production of Thick and Thin yarns, the eFK can be equipped with hot pins. To achieve the thick and thin effect, yarn is drawn around a heated pin in irregular movements. This heat treatment prior to the draw texturing process causes thick and thin places that appear in the final fabric depending on the downstream process either as a cloudy or stripe effect. Hot pins can be easily added on the eFK machine and require one additional feed unit for operation.

18

eFK – Oerlikon Barmag

Additional feed shafts In addition to the implementation of elasthan feed or hot pins, special effects can be achieved with additional feed units in the yarn path. Up to three feed units – depending on the other components - can be added in the feed section of the eFK. With these feed units the following processes are possible: –– Conjugate (FDY) –– Differential draw –– Two-Tone All possible options for the eFK target either reduced manufacturing cost or higher profit due to greater flexibility and variety in product range or by integration of processes.

Cross sections Although the eFK allows a high flexibility in the combination of components, some cross sections have crystallized as the most suitable ones for certain products and processes.

Fine denier, versatility, high speed For processing of fine denier or standard denier with a 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. With the V cross section a straight yarn path supports the process and less stress is induced the shorter the texturing zone. This speaks for either a HTI or Dowtherm heater with the restriction of HTI’s unsuitability for PA. eFK V standard The most versatile conventional Texturing machine with Dowtherm heater covering a wide range of polymers and products Versatility for efficient and high quality production is achieved by: –– Reduced friction –– Elimination of contact points –– Implementation of heater and cooling with greater operational window –– Straight yarn path Machine specification: –– Preferred operational range 30 - 200 den –– Suitable for micro filament yarns and fine denier, while allowing greater operational window for higher denier –– Godet feed system to reduce friction –– 2.0 m Dowtherm heater for titer up to 200 den offers medium contact length combined with operational flexibility –– 1.1 m cooling plate with deep V groove and cool outs offer medium contact length combined with operational flexibility –– Texturing zone of 3.1 m is optimal compromise in terms of process influencing components and economy of process For an even greater operational window and the highest process speed potential the HTI heater can instead be selected with respective suitable cooling.

eFK – Oerlikon Barmag


Energy saving, optimized operational window, fine to very fine denier Taking the advantages of the V cross section into account but focusing on energy consumption is the eFK coolflex. While tailoring the operational window of this cross section to demands for fine denier and micro yarns, this machine cross section allows significant energy savings in operation. Especially fine yarns can be processed on the eFK coolflex with energy savings of up to 20% in comparison to its relative eFK standard. eFK coolflex Very fine denier yarns with a high number of filaments are sensitive and easily affected by friction causing: –– Filament breaks –– Loops –– Yarn breaks The eFK coolflex ensures efficient and high quality production by: –– Eliminating contact points –– Shortening the texturing zone –– Straight yarn path Machine specification: –– Preferred operational range 20 – 100 den –– Especially suitable very fine yarns with a high number of filaments –– Godet feed system to reduce friction –– 1.5 m Dowtherm heater for titer up to 150 den offers reduced contact length and energy saving –– 0.8 m cooling tube with adjustable wrap angle to adapt to yarn requirement –– Shortened texturing zone of 2.3 m improves process potentials

Specialities and plied Today’s speciality yarns vary in end use and application. From heavy duty for upholstery and decoration fabrics to fine fabrics used in clothing - the construction of such fabrics require specially treated yarns. This can be simple plying for zero torque applications or the combination of various yarns with different properties to achieve a certain effect. eFK Multispindle For production of specialty or plied yarns in the fine or standard denier range, the eFK Multispindle is the machine of choice. Using the versatility of the V cross section in combination with the doubling of yarn ends, the machine offers, in its basic execution, simple plying of up to 4 yarn ends. Apart from the plying capability, the eFK Multispindle maintains full functionality to process specialties, as each yarn end is treated separately until it is plied. This allows products like: –– Two tone –– Differential shrinkage –– Differential draw By adding specialty equipment such as by-pass, hot pins or mechanical elasthane covering, the following products can be produced: –– Conjugate or Core-effect yarns –– Thick and Thin (in combination with optional hot pins) –– Elasthane covered yarns (in combination with optional elasthane covering unit) The V cross section offers greatest versatility for fine to mid denier products. For production of coarse denier with up to 1200 den the M cross section with increased heating and cooling capacity is the alternative for efficient and high quality production. In case the eFK Multispindle is targeted for heavy denier production with single yarn of up to 600 den, the M cross section in combination with Oerlikon Barmag’s heavy denier modification kit allows economical processing of these products.

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.
