Ever since manmade fibers were created, man has been attempting to give the smooth, synthetic filament a natural fiber-like character. Texturing is a finishing step that transforms the POY supply yarn into DTY and hence into an attractive and unique product. During texturing, pre-oriented yarn (POY) is permanently crimped using friction. As a result, elasticity and heat retention are increased, the yarn receives a pleasant handle, while thermal conduction is simultaneously reduced.
Oerlikon Barmag has been offering solutions for this process step since the 1950s. Manual or automatic, single or multiple – choosing the right texturing solution for customized yarn production depends on many different factors.
