Key products in detail
A 11 UNIfloc automatic bale opener - Economical cleaning starts with microtufts
The foundations for yarn quality and thus the quality of the textile end product are laid in the blowroom process. This is the basis of the successful use of Rieter’s UNIfloc A 11 automatic bale opener worldwide. The UNIfloc A 11 processes the fiber material gently and efficiently into microtufts, from which impurities can be removed very readily in the subsequent processes. This effectively supports the quality and economic efficiency of yarn manufacture.
B 12 UNIclean pre-cleaner - Efficient and reliable pre-cleaning
The UNIclean B 12 pre-cleaner cleans the microtufts in the first cleaning stage immediately after the UNIfloc A 11. This enables machine output of up to 1 400 kg/h to be achieved. Cleaning is performed without nipping and is therefore very gentle to the fibers and at the same time efficient. VarioSet enables waste volume and waste composition to be adjusted optimally at the push of a button. This ensures a high level of raw material utilization.
B 71 / B 75 UNImix homogeneous mixer - Efficient mixing process with the 3-point method
The B 71 / B 75 UNImix guarantees homogeneous, intimate mixing of the bale feed, even with unfavorable bale lay-down. The unique 3-point mixing process is equally suitable for cotton and man-made fibers. Eight mixing chambers ensure not only effective mixing, but also high output and large storage capacity. Disturbances during bale take-off are prevented from having an adverse impact on subsequent processes.
A 81 UNIblend precision blender - Economical and precisely metered blending for quality yarns
The UNIblend A 81 precision blender sets the highest standard for multi-component blending with an accuracy featuring less than 1% deviation. The UNIblend A 81 enables four different carding lines to be supplied with different blends. The maximum output of the A 81 is 1 000 kg/h.

Com4® - Compacted ring-spun yarn
The unique character of Com4® compact yarns is based on their perfect structure. In contrast to conventional ring-spun yarns, all the fibers lie parallel and are completely integrated in the yarn bundle. This leads to reduced hairiness and higher tenacity and elongation properties of the yarn. This results in enhanced efficiency in the preparatory stages of downstream processing and in fabric manufacture as well as providing the basis for new, high-quality applications.
ComfoRo® - High-quality rotor-spun yarn
With innovative AEROpiecing® technology the fully automated Rieter rotor spinning machine produces virtually faultless rotor-spun yarn with yarn-like piecings. This hitherto unmatched quality has been given the name ComfoRo®. This outstanding yarn quality opens up new fields of application and economical manufacturing processes.
ComforJet® - Air-jet spun yarn
The unique features of the ComforJet® air-jet yarn make it different from the other spinning technologies. The ComforJet® yarn, formed by the flow of compressed air, shows very low hairiness with short fiber ends and small loops. This results in high wash and pilling resistance. The yarn softness and voluminosity lead to visibly higher fabric density and fabric evenness. Thanks to ComforJet® piecing technology the piecing is unrecognizable in the fabric, which adds to the fabric’s value.
