Everyone who is concerned with the selection of the production process suitable for its specific requirements, has to face a number of aspects related to capital investments, quality expectations and flexibility of production.
Based on the experience we have accumulated in the last years, some basic considerations speak for the two-stage process:
1. The two-stage process is flexible.
All package formations are possible, cheeses of different sizes with different specifications.
2. The two-stage process offers quality products.
It reaches a higher level of quality. For example: in the case of given elongation a higher final product strength is obtained which arises from the process itself.
3. The two-stage process is easily variable.
The process setting of the fully drawn material allows a wider range of applications as a result of the strength, elongation, and shrinkage independently from the feeder yarn.
4. The two-stage process offers excellent take off properties from the packages produced.
Throughout the range of processing speed a very effective and controllable intermingling can be achieved: this improves the take off properties and, obviously, the running performances during the subsequent processes, which, finally, has a positive influence on the cost analysis.
