Kingsway Expanding Capacity with Oerlikon Barmag Systems

From SLS to HT yarns, depending on the configuration, Oerlikon Barmag systems are suitable for manufacturing industrial yarns with the most diverse properties

Chinese industrial yarn manufacturer Zhejiang Kingsway High-Tech Fiber Co., Ltd. is expanding its production capacities by a further 40,000 ton/year with five Oerlikon Barmag lines.

Kingsway is already successfully manufacturing special high-quality yarns, exclusively deploying Oerlikon Barmag industrial yarn systems.

The 21 new spinning positions will be used to manufacture a broad product range. In addition to super-low-shrinkage (SLS) and high-tenacity (HT) yarns, the business also plans to produce automotive yarns for seat belts and airbags. This flexibility is made possible as a result of the Oerlikon Barmag systems’ configuration. The new systems are expected to commence manufacturing next year.

As a quality-conscious industrial yarn producer, Kingsway has been manufacturing sophisticated, high-end yarns on Oerlikon Barmag filament yarn systems since 2015.

Kingsway CEO Alex Yang Yu Long is proud of relying on engineering artistry from Remscheid, saying, “As expected, the yarns are first-class in terms of quality. Our products are used in safety equipment, sometimes in situations where lives depend on them. Therefore, there can be no compromises. To this end, we select our partners with the utmost care.”
