C.A. Litzler Co. Inc. received an order from Performance Fibers, Kaiping, China, to design and build an approximately 328 to 410 ft/min (100 to 125 m/min) double-dip tire cord dip line.
Multiple tension zones throughout the line provide maximum flexibility for elongating/relaxing the cord to meet specific processing criteria. The line, which includes a proprietary no-foam dip system, also has speed and tension control accuracy of ±0.1 percent to achieve control of critical cord properties.
Performance Fibers is a division of Indorama Ventures Public Company Ltd. With the purchase and installation of this equipment, the company will become the largest producer of tire cord in China.
