The TWD Fibres value added processing chain

As a fully integrated yarn producer we offer all processing levels of the value-added yarn processing chain for PES, PA, PP, PE and PBT with our state-of-the-art plant park and machinery.

Spinning

We are market leader in Europe when it comes to polyester and polyamide 6.6 yarns for textile related and semi-technical applications. From POY to functional specialties, we offer tailor-made yarn solutions to our customers from a wide variety of industrial sectors.

In our cutting edge machinery plant we are spinning POY filament yarns in PES, PA, PP, PE and PBT. Through our additive spinning process we provide the endless filaments with different functionalities according to the customer’s requirements. Upon request, our in-house experts develop special yarn requirement profiles in consultation with the customer. This is a challenge to our research and development department.

max. capacity: 30,000 jatos PA + PES

With a modern spun-dye production and our extensive database containing recipes for many different shades, we can meet virtually any colour requirement our customer may have. The customer’s colours are measured, formulated and filed in our in-house laboratory. Using our test spinning unit, we are immediately able to process and visualise the colours required by the customer. Your benefits: you get all the colour management processes from a single source. We follow your projects through – from the initial colour concept to series production.

Sample production:

  • own masterbatch production
  • various test spinning units for the production of dope dyeing colours

One of our core strengths is the production of POY polyamide 6.6 and polyester yarns. We produce an average of 30,000 tons, which respond to the needs of the most diverse markets.

The entire polyester ratio of 15,000 tons as well as the majority of our polyamide 6.6 is undergoing the subsequent value adding steps of our yarn processing according to the requirement profiles of our customers.

Subsequent processing

Starting with the spinning process, additive spinning, texturising, twisting and dyeing - TWD Fibres offers you all processing levels from a single source. Our expertise which has been refined over decades forms the basis for a consistent high product quality and ensures safety in the application of our products.

Through the different value adding texturing steps at TWD Fibres the filament yarns are tailored to the heterogeneous needs of the customers or the application fields. Our filament yarns are in any case “customised“ and no products “off the shelf”. The respective physical properties like volume or elasticity, moisture absorption or pilling effect are defined according to the respective application. The different texturing processes form the character of the yarn. We are a renowned specialist in the production of friction or air-jet textured polyamide 6.6 or polyester yarns. Air-jet textured or the so-called taslan (PES) DIOLEN® or (PA 6.6) TIMBRELLE ® combine the natural look and the haptic of fibre yarns with the positive properties of synthetic yarns such as fast drying, a high degree of regularity, strength and resistance to wear.
By crinkle or knit-de-knit method very elastic bouclé yarns are produced, that we offer from dtex 150 to dtex 850 with up to 240 filaments as raw white or coloured yarns.

We offer our qualities as standard, double or retwisted yarns. According to the application field the rpm rate ranges from false-twist-textured yarns to high twisted warp yarns in various yarn counts.

With an annual package dyeing capacity of over 5,000 tonnes and a recipe database containing up to 15,000 shades TWD is market leader in Europe when it comes to dyeing polyester and polyamide 6.6 yarns. On an average we carry out around 2,000 colour samplings per year. Our state-of-the-art colour laboratory calculates recipes and dyestuff dosing fully automatically, allowing custom colour requests to be matched in a very short time. We make sure that our dyeing processes are as sustainable as possible with modern technology by using lean, environmentally friendly processes. An especially low-oligomer process and the use of environmentally friendly chemicals ensure the enhanced running properties of our polyester yarns and a higher product quality.

Whether process determined, for subsequent processing, or at customer’s request – we can provide the necessary finishing for our yarns. The filament yarn can be spooled onto cardboard or dying tubes for cylindric spools; or cones can be manufactured. Spooling can be adjusted with regards to diameter, rigidity and layering, depending on the individual application.

As a specialist in filament yarns, our main goal is the satisfaction of our customers. Through consistent quality management and continuous training of our production staff, we maintain the high product quality that is a key feature of TWD Fibres GmbH. Through close partnership cooperation and regular discussions with our suppliers and customers we are creating new product qualities. We are constantly striving for energy efficiency to further optimize our systems and energy-saving potentials. Regular audits and the evaluation and revaluation of statistical codes, consistent energy and environmental management helps us to become a little bit better every day. Systematic laboratory tests and wastewater controls are part of the catalog of measures such as sensitization of the employees at the machines.
