Germany-based Oerlikon Neumag, a division of Oerlikon Textile GmbH & Co. KG’s Manmade Fibers
business unit, reports that the first S+ three-end bulk continuous filament (BCF) yarn system
delivered to China is set to start up this spring at vertically integrated carpet manufacturer
Zhengzhou Yifa, which will use the system to produce polypropylene BCF carpet yarn.
According to Oerlikon Neumag, the S+ system enables increased productivity, with 99-percent
efficiency and low wastage, and also offers cost advantages. The system, which combines advantages
offered by the company’s S5 and Sytec One systems, has been available for processing polyester yarn
for the past year.
