Spinning Pressure

Index

Similar to the spinning speed (see chapter 5.12.2.5.) the spinning pressure has an influence on the yarn structure and on the yarn parameters respectively. Within certain limits the higher the spinning pressure is, the higher is the twist level in the yarn. Like the spinning speed the spinning pressure has to be set according to the fibre material, the yarn count and the yarn application in the following way:

  • higher spinning pressure for shorter fibre lengths
  • lower spinning pressure for finer yarn counts
  • higher spinning pressure for weaving yarns (in comparison to knitting yarns).
