Fully-drawn yarns (FDY) are used to manufacture textile fabrics without the need for further finishing. Wherever textiles are to hang smoothly or glide fully-drawn yarns are used.
Once again, Oerlikon Barmag is the technology leader here. The WINGS concept – transferred to the FDY process – has removed the limitations of conventional FDY spinning systems. WINGS provides optimized production processes, low waste rates and an around 30-percent reduction in energy consumption. This trailblazing technology can be used for polyester in the FDY process. Other polymers, such as polyamide and polypropylene, are wound in a conventional manner using the i-QOON winding technology.
