In 2019, we sold the new CakeFormingWinder in Asia for the first time. In the fourth quarter of last year, the machine scored a hit again with our demanding glass-winding customers and we were able to conclude a follow-up order. This success proves that the CakeFormingWinder has fully met our customers' expectations in terms of performance and quality. Its new rotor technology has proven to be a groundbreaking innovation for the production of ultra-fine yarn.
Highly twisted glass filaments are used, among other things, in the production of printed circuit boards. The CakeFormingWinder successfully plays out its advantages in their production, especially when it is combined with the VGT series from Saurer. The preliminary products produced on the CakeFormingWinder serve as a template for the VGT. The two series of products complement each other to form a seamless combination with convincing overall performance.
