Oerlikon Neumag receives its largest staple fiber plant order
Posted June 17, 2021
NEUMUNSTER, Germany and SHANGHAI – In the context of the ITMA Asi + CITME that took place in Shanghai, Oerlikon announced that it has concluded the largest staple fiber plant order in the history of Oerlikon Neumag with the major Chinese group Xinfengming in the runup to the trade fair.
This involves eight complete staple fiber lines with a total of 320 spinning positions to produce synthetic staple fibers. Oerlikon will not only supply the technology, but will also take over the engineering of the lines. Delivery is scheduled for 2022.
With a total capacity of 1,800 t/d, the project is Oerlikon Neumag's largest staple fiber plant order to date. The eight two-step lines will produce cotton-type staple fibers in a titer range of 1.0 - 1.4 denier.
With this investment, the Xinfengming Group is expanding its product portfolio. As one of the world's leading FDY and POY polyester filament yarn producers, the Chinese company has relied on Oerlikon Barmag technologies for decades and now also on those of Oerlikon Neumag.
