KREFELD, Germany — January 2016 — JEC is the worldwide largest trade fair for Composites and the JEC Conferences are the most important conferences of the year. Composites professionals from all over the world will meet in Paris from March 8-10, 2016. Volkmann will present the innovations in glass twisting machines VGT and VGT11-P.

Largest VGT installation worldwide starts production
The major order from Taishan Fiberglass for 93 VGT twisting machines in various specifications could be put into operation in mid-December 2015. The plant for textile glass filament yarns in the Shandong Province with a maximum capacity of 50,000 tons per year is the worldwide largest production site for textile twisted glass filament yarns. Thanks to the Volkmann-typical sectional design, all machines were started up to the full satisfaction of the customer within the shortest possible time.
First VGT11-P4 Combi glass ring twisting machine starts production
The newly developed VGT11-P4 Combi glass ring twisting machine, which was presented at the JEC 2015, successfully started production at the end of 2015. The multiply yarn constructions for the filtration technology produced on this machine type meet the highest requirements of the glass filament market. With its wide field of applications and high machine efficiency the VGT11-P series enjoys a great demand.
Volkmann presents new service network for Verdol machines
The original parts and service business taken over from the Verdol Reyes Group in France in September 2015 strengthens and complements the service and original parts activities of Allma Volkmann in the areas of glass, carpet, staple, tire cord and technical yarns.
The new office in France, with former employees from the Verdol group, offers a perfect expansion of Allma Volkmann customer services worldwide
