In a comparison, the Rieter system was contrasted with a “mixed system” consisting of machines from various manufacturers. A combed cotton yarn with a yarn count of Ne 30 was spun. Both systems each produced 1 345 kilograms of yarn per hour.
When all the cost factors are taken into consideration, the Rieter system performs significantly better. Customers who choose the Rieter air-jet spinning system generate an approximately USD 1.8 million higher cash flow per year at the same production volume.
The complete system offers unique advantages – and so does the J 26. For example, customers can produce yarns with Z- or S-twist, which has positive effects on the manufacture of knitted fabric. The extremely low hairiness of the yarn is unique too. The fiber fly during downstream processing is considerably reduced.
