The worldwide market and technology leader for complete plants for the production of BCF carpet yarn as well as manmade fibers will showcase the BCF S+ system. The three-end S+ combines the advantages of the established S5 and Sytec One machines in a high performance, efficient and user-friendly plant with proven components. As the successor of the state-of-the-art S5, the S+ convinces with an efficiency of 99% and thus cost savings for raw material. The S+ achieves highest yarn qualities with a productivity increase and with virtually the same utilized energy.
Since 2012, the S+ has also been available for the polyester process. This is an important innovation considering that polyester is globally becoming increasingly significant in the BCF process vis-à-vis polypropylene and polyamide.
With continuous development efforts and industry feedback, Oerlikon Neumag focuses on improvements on the machines, the components and the processes. “This knowledge is applied in new solutions for an improved performance in BCF”, Michael Rübenhagen, Sales Director BCF, explains.
