Contracts for 120 spinning positions with Chinese yarn manufacturers
All spinning positions will be equipped with the EvoQuench radial quenching system for polyamide. Currently, Oerlikon Barmag is the world’s only supplier of an already operating radial quenching concept for polyamide. The benefits of radial quenching vis-à-vis conventional cross-flow quenching when manufacturing microfibers lie in a more production-reliable manner with fewer yarn breaks.
The new systems are scheduled to begin manufacturing in early 2021.
