Oerlikon Schlafhorst Introduces Fancynation Fancy Yarn Technology For Autocoro 8

Germany-based Oerlikon Schlafhorst, a business unit of Oerlikon Textile GmbH & Co. KG, now
offers Fancynation, a plug-and-play design program that enables flexible production of up to five
fancy yarns or a combination of smooth and fancy yarns on the Autocoro 8 rotor spinning machine.

According to the company, Autocoro 8 enables spinning mills to customize production by
programming the number of spinning positions needed to produce a particular lot, with no
limitations on lot size, thereby making small-lot production affordable. Fancynation is installed
on a personal computer, and the design data are easily transferred to the Autocoro 8.
