COMPETENCIES

Technology

Our broad manufacturing capabilites meet the requirements of customers in various industries. Modern plant technology paired with a reliable production infrastructure enables us to to work flexibly and fulfill customers’ requirements to the highest quality standards.

At our production sites, we have more than 20 extrusion lines that are capable of running a large variety of materials and product batches. The manufactured monofilaments primarily move on a scale from 0.07 mm to 6.0 mm. Furthermore, the production site has its own doubling mill with many different yarn and texturing systems available.

Know-How

Technical monofilaments and artificial turf yarns are made from thermoplastic polymers. The polymer, which is adjusted to the customer’s requirements, is melted in an extruder, the melted material is pressed through nozzles and the spinning profile is stretched, thermofixed and finally spooled, as needed.

Both the polymers themselves and the resulting monofilaments offer extensive opportunities for modification across a wide spectrum of chemical, technological, and production parameters. This flexibility allows us to tailor their properties to meet the specific requirements of each individual item to be manufactured.

Flexibility

The flexibility and scalable performance makes it possible to manufacture product batches from 150 kg to 1,000 tons. Alongside other strengths, this flexibility is a huge competitive advantage for us.

Our flexibility allows us to react quickly to new trends and customer feedback, develop customized solutions and continuously improve our service.

Innovative Capacity

In development projects, our focus lies on innovative and customer-specific solutions. We welcome challenges and consider tackling complex problems to be one of our company’s core competencies.

“Do you have an innovative product idea? Do you have a design in mind and don’t know whether and how it can be implemented? Do you have a material requirement that cannot be achieved with standard products?”

Our employees are looking forward to your call – competent project managers will help you to realize your product wishes.

Vision & Mission

It is our mission to be a significant monofilament manufacturer in the market and to drive innovation together with our customers. As an owner-managed family business, the WETEKAM | GROUP and its associated companies are a solid partner for customers, suppliers and other stakeholders. In order to further accelerate the expansion of our global business activities, we rely on the following core principles.

Materials

Dr. Karl Wetekam & Co. KG is able to process a wide spectrum of polymers and additives. This includes generally known materials such as:

But also special types of polyethylene or other exotic materials are included, for example:

  • PVDF, ETFE, PPS, PMMA, PEAK and POM

In addition to stabilising agents for:

  • Antibacterial, UV-stabilized, Thermo-stabilized, Antistatic, Conductive, Abrasion resistant, Flameproof, Hydrolysis resistent, Dirt repellent and Anti-rodent

We are processing all these components together into a monofile as demanded by our customers.

These are technical terms that most people do not know right away. If you have questions about the list or special wishes for materials, please do not hesitate to contact us using the contact button below.
