Barmag Expands Portfolio With IWKA Winders

Barmag, a subsidiary of Germany-based Saurer GmbH & Co. KG, has purchased the patents and rights to IWKA elastomer winder technology from Germany-based Zentes Unitex Textile Machinery GmbH & Co. KG.

IWKA winders, designed for the production of elastane fibers, can wind up to 16 filaments per position at speeds of up to 1,300 meters per minute, with a tighter range of between 11 and 120 decitex.

Barmag will market the winders through its Barmag Spinnzwirn subsidiary, and will continue to produce elastomer winders for the former IWKA program. Zentes Unitex will continue to supply spare parts for IWKA elastomer and partially oriented yarn winders.
