Synthetic fibers make up an ever-growing proportion of fiber production worldwide. In contrast to natural fibers, whose associated cultivation regions, e.g. for cotton, are finite and are in direct competition with foodstuffs and plants used for energy production, so far no finite limitations can be seen for synthetic production capacities. As a starting basis, crude oil will continue to be available in sufficient quantities. Consequently, further growth of the production capacity will also be achieved in the near future in order to cover the increasing needs of a quickly growing world population.
For decades, Siemens has proven itself to be a reliable partner for mechanical engineering with its drive and automation solutions, its reliability in the use of extruders, spinning machines, texturizers, and coil winding machines.
