OTIZ enters the PA66 automotive market
with Oerlikon Barmag technology
The Chinese industrial
yarn manufacturer Oriental Industries (Suzhou) Ltd. (OTIZ)
successfully commissioned its first polyamide 66 investment
recently. Here, the company put its faith in the Remscheid-based
spinning systems constructor Oerlikon Barmag. The Segment
Manmade Fibers of the Swiss Oerlikon group has announced this
project during Techtextil in Frankfurt.
“The PA 66 experience offered by Oerlikon Barmag was the
decisive factor that influenced our investment decision. This
gave us the necessary confidence to know that we can also be
successful with a new process,” comments OTIZ President, Moji
In the future, OTIZ will expand its portfolio to include
industrial PA66 yarns with a titer range of between 270 and 1440
dtex. With this, the subsidiary of the Taiwan-based Far Eastern
Group has now entered the PA66 automotive growth market. The new
systems supplied by Oerlikon Barmag cater to three different
segments: low denier industrial yarn (LDI), medium denier
industrial yarn (MDI) and high denier industrial yarn (HDI). An
8-end system has been supplied for the up to 1440 dtex HDI yarn
range for the very first time. With the considerably higher
output per position, the company – founded in 2005 – now has a
tremendous competitive edge.
OTIZ’ main products are automotive
yarns such as tire cord,
airbag or seatbelt yarn.
“For us, it was important to secure a long-term partner for
this innovative technology, a partner who also has
tried-and-tested experience in the downstream
processes,”explains Regional Sales Director Oliver Lemke.
The yarn products are deployed in airbags, luggage,
parachutes and sports apparel (LDI), landscaping and geotextiles
(MDI) and also in tires (HDI).
As a fully-integrated industrial yarn specialist, OTIZ is
involved along the entire process chain. The company’s clientèle
includes well-known automobile sector suppliers across the
