Oerlikon Showing New Applications At Techtextil India
The Polymer Processing Solutions division of the Oerlikon Group will show new applications, special processes and sustainable solutions focusing on the production of industrial textiles at Techtextil India.
The Swiss company will be concentrating on airbags, seat belts, tire cord, geotextiles, filter nonwovens and their diverse applications at their stall H32 in Pavilion 3.
The Oerlikon Barmag airbags technology offers high productivity and low energy consumption, while excelling in terms of their stable production processes.
“Furthermore, they comply with every high quality standard for airbags, without any loss of function in any climate and anywhere in the world for the lifetime of the vehicle,” the company said in a press release.
Normally, geotextiles have extremely high yarn titers of up to 24,000 deniers. Oerlikon Barmag system simultaneously manufactures three filament yarns of 6,000 deniers each.
“Due to the high spinning titers, fewer yarns can be plied together to the required geo-yarn titer in a more cost- and energy-efficient manner,” it added.
In the case of its hycuTEC hydro-charging solution, Oerlikon Neumag offers a new technology for charging nonwovens that increases filter efficiency to more than 99.99 percent.
For meltblown producers, this means material savings of 30 percent with significantly superior filter performance.
For end users, the consequence is noticeably improved comfort resulting from significantly reduced breathing resistance.
“With its considerably lower water and energy consumption, this new development is also a future-proof, sustainable technology,” Oerlikon informed.
