Volkmann presents glass twisting technology at JEC

The newly-developed VGT11-P4 Combi glass ring twisting machine, which was presented at the JEC 2015, successfully started production at the end of 2015.

JEC is the worldwide largest trade fair for composites and the JEC conferences are the most important conferences of the year. Composites professionals from all over the world will meet in Paris from March 8-10, 2016. Volkmann will present the innovations in glass twisting machines VGT and VGT11-P. At the joint Saurer stand A56 in hall 6, visitors will be informed about all new developments in the glass fibre production range.

Largest VGT installation worldwide starts production

The major order from Taishan Fiberglass for 93 VGT twisting machines in various specifications could be put into operation in mid-December 2015. The plant for textile glass filament yarns in the Shandong Province with a maximum capacity of 50,000 tonne per year is the worldwide largest production site for textile twisted glass filament yarns. Thanks to the Volkmann-typical sectional design, all machines were started up to the full satisfaction of the customer within the shortest possible time.

First VGT11-P4 Combi glass ring twisting machine starts production

With its wide field of applications and high machine efficiency the VGT11-P series enjoys a great demand.
