AUSTROFIL BCF®

The byword for top quality

multifiliament BCF spinning lines.

The greatest need for bulk continuous filament yarns comes from the carpet industry and a number of other niche markets, such as door and window seals. The outstanding quality of the yarns created with our high-tech machines has led to us receiving a huge positive response from the market in this area. The yarns provide impressive results in terms of tenacity, elongation, and rest shrinkage. A special feature for the carpet making process is the uniquely high crimp that can be achieved with our machines, making it possible to reduce material usage by as much as 20%. The bottom line: an investment in an SML spinning line is an investment that pays off quickly!

Technology that pays off.

Within our Austrofil brand portfolio, we build four different types of lines based on bulk continuous filament technology. They are the ideal way to process the most popular synthetic carpet materials of the moment, such as PP, PA and PET. Our lines can be set up with monocolour or tricolour technology, according to the yarn that is required.

Line Types

The top choice for small batch sizes.

The SML BCF PP monocolour compact

 

This line is the most efficient and cost-effective entry-level model in the world of BCF technology. Its compact design demands little floor space and is particularly suitable for small production batches.

 

 

 

Performance level
BCF PP 2x2C / 75 Compact, 4 ends, monocolour
Polymer Polypropylene, MFR 23 - 27
Titer range 1,000 - 5,000dtex
Output capacity 160 kg/h, 3.8 t/d

The benefits at a glance

 

  • Affordable market entry with output of 160 kg/h
  • Compact line for small production batches
  • One extruder
  • Two winders with 4 ends

Parallel production possibilities.

The SML BCF PP monocolour twin

 

This line is equipped with two extruders and two separate spinning heads. This makes it possible to either manufacture one product or simultaneously produce two completely different batches in a titre range of 1,200 to 5,000dtex, combining the benefits of having two small machines with those of having one large machine. And making your production even more flexible in the process. The line’s maximum output rate also clocks in at an impressive 320 kg/h.

 

Performance level

How you stand to benefit, at a glance
 

  • High yarn quality fully preserved across every output dimension, thanks to the use of two extruders
  • Different products can be simultaneously produced with ease
  • Ideal for small and large batches alike
  • Low line height

     

Expanding the range of possibilities.

The SML BCF PP tricolour

 

This spinning line is specifically designed for the carpet industry and offers a limitless range of colour combinations and shades, following actual design trends expanding your options in carpet design. Its performance is no less remarkable, delivering an output rate of up to 320 kg/h.
Further on many customers use this line for monocolour batches.
