OERLIKON BARMAG & OERLIKON NEUMAG faces the challenge of digitization of the process chain in textile production: "From Melt to Yarn, Fibers and Nonwoven" at Hall H2, Booth B24

In the future textile production is autonomously controlled in the fully-networked Factory 4.0. To provide corresponding intelligent and web-enabled production systems Oerlikon Manmade Fibers Segment faces the challenge of digitization of the process chain “From Melt to Yarn, Fibers and Nonwoven”. Its digital future solution: AIM4DTY. An intelligent control system that helps to reduce quality risks in texturing machines. The automated system detects errors and is trained by using machine learning while at the same time considering data security, data minimization and transparency.

Visitors experience complex systems live in 3D in Oerlikons virtual showroom and other funny solutions presenting the topic of artificial intelligence.

Further highlights at the booth of OERLIKON BARMAG & OERLIKON NEUMAG:

  • The wiping robot for the cleaning of the spinnerets is an intelligent control system that connects machines and processes and copes with up to 48 positions, corresponding to one entire production line
  • The world premiere of the Staple FORCE S1100. It spins, draws, crimps, cuts and bales in a single process step, produces small batches (up to 15 tons per day) and can be swiftly reconfigured for various requirements, including polymer, dye and titer changes. It offers a unique process control system for easy operation Its process control system for easy operation is absolutely unique.
  • News from the PA6/66 sector: The now available and tested technologies in the melt preparation process include the entire polyamide 6 polycondensation systems division and its PA6/66 co-polymer and the patented dimer-hydrolysis procedures for feeding recycled-lactam with the very highest end-product quality.
