Market - Technical Yarn

symTTec – the machine for technical yarns

Sucessful start up in Russia

Market - Carpet Yarn

symTTex – the machine for carpet yarns

Conclusion

symttec extrusion system
symTTec – Extrusion System

symTTec stands for SYMmetry for TEChnical yarns

  • Production of 4 ends per position
  • Special focus is given to the melt distribution geometry over each position
  • All yarns have the same angle from the spinneret to the first contact points, improving the filament cohesion
  • Pulsation-free quenching has been improved to better homogenize cooling conditions of each yarn
  • Large inlet and special spin finish applicators allows a reduction of the angle and friction of filaments at draw panel’s inlet
  • 2 winders each with 2 ends in parallel offer a unique symmetric geometry on winding

Different available take up configurations

    • The use of one or other configuration depends on the yarn end-properties.
  • CD300-winder or FW61-winder are used depending on the down-stream available equipments.

swisstex s solutions requirements for spinning part
SwissTex’s solutionsRequirements for spinning part
  • Requirements for an optimized process
  • high process stability with optimized melt quality
    • no overheating of the polymer material
    • low shear rates
    • short residence time, equal for each single polymer flow
  • homogeneity from filament to filament ( no weak filaments!!!)
  • Subjects for research
  • screw geometry
  • mixing systems (dynamic in extruder, static in melt pipes)
  • melt pipes geometry (same length for each single polymer flow)
  • melt distribution in the spin pack
  • adequate filtration of the melt
  • holes distribution in the spinneret
symttec extrusion system1
symTTec – Extrusion System
  • Production of 4 ends with plying for high titers
  • Special focus is given to the melt distribution to have an adequate pipe geometry to each position and spin pack
  • All yarns have the same angle from the spinneret to the first contact points, improving the filament cohesion
  • Pulsation-free quenching has been improved to better homogenize cooling condition of each yarn
  • Large inlet and special spin finish applicators allows a reduction of the angle and friction of filaments at draw panel’s inlet
  • 2 winders each with 2 ends in parallel offers a unique symmetric geometry on winding – no difference between rear-middle-front bobbins

Annealer - overheaters

  • Annealers are heaters installed below the spinnerets to reduce the yarn orientation at the take-up roll level and thereby to improve yarn draw abilities
  • Annealers are electrically heated and removable for spin pack installation
  • Heating height approx. 250 mm
  • Individual position annealer with common handling, allowing a very homogenous over heating of each yarn independent of its location on the position (yarns in the middle vs yarns at the exterior)

Traditional design (common)

SwissTex design (individual)

symttec spinning components1
symTTec – Spinning Components
  • Cross flow quench with innovative solutions
  • Cross flow system offers the best ratio between handling and performance
  • Quenching has to be of perfect homogeneity
    • Pulsation free
    • Air speed fine tuning
    • Easy adaptation of the airflow to the production requirement
  • Air has to be oil free and with controlled humidity (Optional supply of A/C unit for process air)
  • Quench cabinet is designed to give easy access to spin packs / annealers and to allow easy dismantling of rectifier for cleaning

symttex filament formation
symTTex – Filament Formation
  • New Approach of Filament Spinning
  • New concept re-grouping Spin packs, Quench, Inter-floor tube and Draw panel inlet
  • Use of simulation software and institute support to modelise the filament cooling process
  • Better repartition of filaments in spin plates to optimize cooling air flow between the filaments
  • More homogeneous filament structure resulting in better consistency
  • The result is a very stable and efficient filament formation resulting in higher yarn quality at highest productivity

symTTex – Yarn Results

Better Coverage and Consistency in the Carpet

  • The KWH measuring method does not show significant difference in crimp value, whereas the yarn behaves totally differently in the carpet
  • Benefit for carpet producers is in the reduced weight of pile used for similar appearance and reduced streaks problems
  • This quality can be achieved with at a slightly higher speed and machine efficiency
  • The quality is also more constant in the time as no wear happens
  • Constant quality over a long period of time
  • Customer does not need to sort out the bobbins and can mix bobbins from a production lot
