Industrial impact of the MJS machine

Index

At the turn of the millennium, about 220 000 MJS spinning positions (equal to approximately 3 000 machines) were installed in spinning mills. The bulk of these machines, i.e. about 2/3, are operating in the USA, and the rest mainly in Asian countries. However, there are no machines in European mills. This somewhat limited success of MJS is mainly due to the inability of this system to process 100% cotton. This defect can obviously not be fully offset by the good economics of the process and the quite good overall yarn quality when spinning synthetic yarns or blends.
