SML Develops New Multifilament Spinning Line

Austria-based SML Maschinengesellschaft mb, a member of the Starlinger Group, recently introduced the Austrofil HT2x2C compact multifilament spinning line for medium- (MT) and high-tenacity (HT) yarns of 100 to 600 denier, and 200 to 3,000 denier, respectively.

Development of the Austrofil was based on a comparison of SML spinning equipment with that of Germany-based Georg Sahm GmbH & Co. KG, also a member of the Starlinger Group, and with help from Sahm technicians.

SML designed the Austrofil HT2x2C compact multifilament spinning line for medium- and high-tenacity yarns.

This cooperation led to the Austrofil's completely new design. The machine comes equipped with a 60-millimeter extruder, enabling output of up to 80 kilograms per hour; as well as spinning beam, quenching unit and godets in a new arrangement. A hot air stretching oven also is included.

The new spinning line has been designed for such MT yarn applications as sealings, carpet backings, mattresses, curtain belts, bags, filters, and upholstery and chenille fabrics.

HT yarn applications include geotextiles, technical textiles, belts, nets, tarpaulins, ropes and sewing threads.
