WINGS POY 1800 boosts yarn production by another 20% Oerlikon Barmag has set a new benchmark for the efficient production of polyester fibres with its new yarn winder WINGS POY 1800. The new winding unit boosts productivity by another 20 percent using virtually the same amount of production space as the previous model. "With WINGS POY 1800, we are once again underscoring our technological leadership in the area of filament spinning. We will use this technology to sustainably bolster our market share of more than 40 percent in the manmade fibre machinery industry", says Stefan Kross, CEO of Oerlikons Manmade fibres Segment. Compared to its predecessor model, WINGS POY 1800 can accommodate twelve bobbins instead of the previous ten bobbins which required highly sophisticated technical developments. "With WINGS POY 1800, we are writing another chapter in our success story and moving even further ahead of our competitors. Unlike any other spinning products in the marketplace, WINGS delivers efficient and profitable filament production, while supplying the highest level of yarn quality," comments Stefan Kross. The Winding INtegrated Godet Solution, or WINGS, is highly user-friendly, groundbreaking equipment that requires more than 30 percent less space. Oerlikon Barmag introduced WINGS POY to the market in 2007 ushering in a totally new dimension to manmade fibre spinning. More than 14,000 WINGS units for the POY and FDY yarn types have been sold since market introduction.
