BB Engineering: Innovations in Air-Texturizing, Spinning and Recycling

At ITMA – one of the world’s largest international textile and garment technology exhibitions, that took place in June in Milan (Italy) – German company BB Engineering GmbH was an official sub-exhibitor of its parent company, Swiss Oerlikon Group, for the first time.

In addition to man-made fiber spinning (VarioFil compact spinning line) and fiber-to-fiber recycling (VacuFil recycling technology), the company focused on introducing its new JeTex air-texturizing system, and left the fair with a pleasing volume of orders.

With the new JeTex air-texturizing system, BBE is expanding its product portfolio to offer a finishing technology as well. It is a production line for high-quality air-texturized yarn (ATY). According to the company, it combines an innovative texturing system developed by BB Engineering as a key component with state-of-the-art components by Oerlikon Barmag to ensure fast production speed, the desired effects, and the quality of the product. At ITMA, JeTex air-texturizing was demonstrated in the ‘Experience Center’ of the Oerlikon stand. Regarding the proven and popular VarioFil compact spinning line for synthetic fibers, BB Engineering also brought some innovations to ITMA: Higher production capacities per spinning position and improved spin pack lifetime form a new machine generation with increased productivity. The VacuFil PET recycling system has been further developed and was presented as BB Engineering’s solution for the waste-free production of filament yarns. “The patented liquid-state polycondensation (LSP) unit Visco+ for viscosity adjustment and control as key component was the main focus and attracted great interest,” the supplier in the field of machinery and plant engineering for the synthetic fiber and film industry informed.
