Automated Air-Jet Spinning Machine J 26

Economical yarn production with a flexible machine
  1. The most economical machine process
  2. High flexibility thanks to independent machine sides
  3. Advantages for downstream processing

Product Details

The fully automated, double-sided air-jet spinning machine J 26 with 200 spinning units, 6 robots and a delivery speed of up to 500 m/min ensures economical and flexible production.

The winding unit allows the production of cylindrical or conical packages with uniform density, heavy weight and soft edges for optimal performance in downstream processing. The system is rounded off with either the Rieter yarn clearer Q 10A or Q 20AF, which have been specially adjusted for air-jet spinning.


200 spinning units, a delivery speed of up to 500 m/min and 6 robots ensure the most economical production process. The single-drive concept for the spinning and winding unit ensures optimal energy usage. Monitoring the suction motor allows energy savings of up to 15%.

The double-sided machine concept with cans underneath the machine saves up to 50% more space and reduces spinning mill operating costs.


The unique Com4®jet yarn structure provides benefits both in downstream processing and in the fabric. Technological innovations mean that fabric softness can be adjusted. The proven Rieter yarn clearer Q 10A or Q 20AF is now integrated into the J 26.  All standard clearer functions and special monitoring channels for detecting foreign fibers are available.

With the new edge displacement, packages have uniform density, a heavier weight and soft edges for optimal performance in downstream processing. The automated piecing system uses the proven principle of progressive fiber feeding to create stronger, yarn-like piecings that are undetectable in fabrics.


The J 26 can be supplied with cylindrical or conical winding. The conical packages with 4 20 offer processing advantages in knitting and weaving mills.

Independent machine sides with different settings for all parameters and independent tube loading enable two different articles to be produced at the same time.

Rieter Com4® Yarns

Yarns for the most exacting requirements that ensure competitiveness in a dynamic market are Com4® yarns. Spun on Rieter ring, compact, rotor or air-jet spinning machines the Com4® yarns are characterized by excellent quality. Rieter customers profit from optimized production costs and good selling outlets.

UPtime – Intelligent Digital Maintenance

UPtime represents a new strategy of maintenance by predicting when equipment failure might occur. Combining big data and machine algorithms, UPtime analyzes and identifies abnormalities and predicts failures. From Rieter to third-party spinning equipment and auxiliaries, UPtime gives clear instructions to optimize the performance of spinning mills.
