Dienes, Mainsite Team To Provide Complete Spinning Solutions

Germany-based Dienes Apparatebau GmbH — a spinning plant and man-made-fiber treatment solutions
provider — and Mainsite Services GmbH & Co. KG — operator of the Obernburg Industrial Center
(ICO), also based in Germany — have joined forces to provide complete, customized upgrade or
conversion solutions, from extrusion to winding, for spinning plants that process bulk continuous
filaments, polyethylene terephthalate, polyamide, elastane and assorted high-performance fibers.
The two companies together employ 30 engineers and technicians who work closely with customers to
develop concepts, special components, and automation and process control techniques; and oversee
their technical implementation.

Recently, Dienes and Mainsite completed a project to design a single-step manufacturing
process for Diolen Industrial Fibers GmbH — a manufacturer of high-quality technical polyester
yarns — at Diolen’s facility in the ICO. According to the two companies, the project, which was
completed in record time over a period of a few months without interfering with ongoing operations
at the plant, quickly achieved the goal of improving production efficiencies and optimizing costs
while maintaining product quality.
