Advances in high-performance yarns have produced versatile alternatives to traditional raw materials in a number of industries and applications. Customized filament yarns now meet specific needs in diverse sectors, such as automotive, aviation, maritime, medical, and construction. The Swiss-made key components from Heberlein are at the forefront of these developments, bringing new technology to the core of filament yarn innovation.

New generation of spinning jet

For producers of demanding technical yarns, magnification of the yarn evenness with a “PolyJet-TG-3-HP405A/WO70” (Top Air) looks stunning. The new generation of jets impresses with an unmatched even and uniform interlacing density as well as with strong, reliable knots for high tenacity yarn (HT and HMLS). Heberlein´s latest “Poly Jet-TG-3” achieves more than twelve knots per meter with 1100f98dtex and 1670f98dtex. Yarn parameters of tensile strength, elongation, and elasticity show smaller variations, for ultimate quality benefits, as well as improved unwinding behaviour of the bobbins. Furthermore, set-up times could be minimised, because high-performance air interlacing jets for technical yarns offer a unique quick-release system, so jet packs can be exchanged within seconds, with just a single 180° turn. They also feature a compact, space-saving design and a roll bar to protect the ceramic surfaces.

“Tex Jet-ATY” air-jet

“Tex Jet-ATY” is an innovative air-jet providing options for a wide variety of yarns and optimization possibilities for ATY production. The latest series meets the needs of according to the company virtually every ATY producer: the air-jet´s unrivalled compact design can produce an impressive range of volumes, covering capacities, overfeeds, texturing and compactness – and is also applicable for PP yarns. Polypropylene yarns, used for instance for carpet backing, can be processed in application ranges from 150 dtex up to 3,000 dtex with maximum 30% overfeed. It delivers a higher output of first-grade yarn. In the production of very fine to coarse textured yarns made of polyester, polyamide, and polypropylene, improvements are visible to the naked eye. Yarns are regularly formed with evenly-distributed loops.

Splicers for high-strength technical fibers

Yarn splicers produce a tear-resistant, homogeneous splice of material without knots. All they need is compressed air. Heberlein´s air splicers produce splices for a wide range of applications for technical fibers where extreme strength characteristics are needed. Synthetic multifilament yarns, aramid, carbon, or glass can all be spliced with “Air Splicer-3 Flex”. The range covers from 500dtex up to 30,000dtex depending on the material. This flexibility results from its innovative width-adjustable design and is ideal for technical and textile multifilament yarns, consolidating the functionalities of multiple previous units into a single device.

In conlusion, Heberlei´s advancements in spinning jets, air-jets, and splicers are driving significant improvements in yarn quality, production efficiency, and versatility across various industries.
