The Rieter Manual of Spinning

Detailed understanding of technology and engineering provides the fuel for innovation and success in the textile industry. Only through knowledge of relationships within and between the process stages can machine settings and thus end products be optimized in such a way as to guarantee success in the marketplace. The new, revised “Rieter Manual of Spinning” offers technical specialists, students and other interested parties a multi-volume reference work with a practical focus on the technology of short staple spinning.

Volume 1 - Technology of Short-Staple Spinning

This first volume in the series of the Rieter Manual of Spinning deals with the basics, and therefore generally valid, technological relationships in short-staple spinning. The following volumes in this series will be organized according to machines or machine groups. Generally valid basic principles will thus be kept separate from ongoing developments in machine design and construction.

Volume 2 - Blowroom & Carding

Volume 2 of the Rieter Manual of Spinning provides in-depth information on opening, cleaning, blending and carding, and covers additional aspects such as acclimatization of raw materials, anticipated waste from various grades of fiber, selection and setting of cleaning and blending machinery, waste recycling, transport, the functions of  the various card components, as well as selection and maintenance of card clothing and autolevelling systems.

Volume 3 - Spinning Preparation

This volume of the Rieter Manual of Spinning covers the technical and technological aspects of the yarn production process between carding and ring spinning. This is the most important part of the process, because the quality of the yarn depends to a large extent on the quality of the intermediate products from which it is made. This volume is in three parts, dealing in turn with the combing section (including preparation for combing), the draw frame and the roving frame.

Volume 4 - Ring Spinning

The fourth volume covers the technical and technological aspects of ring spinning. This is a very important sub-field of yarn production, because the ring frame has a major influence on the yarn product and its quality. Ring-spun yarn still represents the absolute standard for comparison when evaluating yarns produced by other spinning processes.

Volume 5 - Rotor Spinning

The rotor spinning process was developed as a result of research into alternative spinning systems. Through continual development, such great improvements have been achieved in spinning elements and conditions that it is now almost impossible to distinguish rotor-spun from ring-spun yarn optically. This volume contains in-depth information on the rotor spinning process and its properties.

Volume 6 - Alternative Spinning Systems

The alternative spinning systems produce yarn and hence endproducts in a quality that differs to a certain extent from the ring spinning standard. In order to take full advantage of the alternative spinning systems, it is therefore essential to have a thorough understanding of them. This volume is designed to contribute towards reaching this goal and describes the most important alternative spinning systems in detail.

Volume 7 - Processing of Man-Made Fibers

Ever since the introduction of man-made fibers on a commercial scale, the market share of synthetic fibers has shown an impressive growth rate. in this important field, the variety is continuosly increasing. For numerous applications today, fibers that are practically "tailor-made" are available. Spinners must therefore have detailed understanding of the fiber properties and the specific characteristics that affect their processing.

Volume 1 - 7

„The Rieter Manual of Spinning“ is the reference work for short-staple spinning and consists of seven volumes. All seven volumes can be acquired in hard cover form in a box for a special price.
