Product details

ESSENTIAL leverages digital technology for the textile value creation. The Rieter Digital Spinning Suite analyzes data of the entire spinning mill in real-time and provides meaningful key performance indicators based on this. 

With comprehensive and clearly arranged digital analysis, the system supports management in strengthening the expertise of mill staff, eliminating inefficiencies and optimizing processes across the entire system. Through its holistic approach, ESSENTIAL is connecting the dots in the spinning mill.

ESSENTIAL connects the entire spinning mill


A holistic view from bale to yarn is key to optimize the whole spinning process and eliminate inefficiencies. ESSENTIAL makes this possible by connecting the entire spinning mill. Each user, from mill owner to operator, has an overview of the relevant information needed for their daily tasks and can manage the spinning mill through a ticketing and alarm system.


ESSENTIAL is a modular system to gradually digitize the spinning mill while meeting the highest security standards. This system consists of five modules: ESSENTIALbasic, ESSENTIALmonitor, ESSENTIALmaintain, as well as the future modules ESSENTIALoptimize and ESSENTIALpredict. Each module features a series of solutions to cover all customer needs.

Anytime, anywhere

Responding to challenges without a delay and minimizing expensive downtime require the right information to the right people at the right time. With near real-time data streams of spinning mills, ESSENTIAL provides key performance indicators and improvement suggestions on efficiency, production, energy, and quality data.



Based on existing customer information, the webshop ESSENTIALorder visualizes which Rieter machines and systems are available inside each spinning mill. It facilitates order management, enabling spinning mills to optimize their internal stock levels. ESSENTIALorder is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. 


ESSENTIALbasic is the starter module of ESSENTIAL – Rieter Digital Spinning Suite and is available free of charge for all Rieter customers. This module includes solutions such as the Rieter calculator, ESSENTIALorder, and ESSENTIALconsult. 


ESSENTIALmonitor provides organized data from the entire spinning process, allowing all relevant information to be collected, weaknesses to be identified, and personnel to be managed in the most economical way. The specific and non-stop recording of data for production, energy, and quality allows fast response times and increases the efficiency of spinning mills while reducing costs.


ESSENTIALmaintain enables intelligent spinning mill maintenance. It analyzes sensor data from critical machine components and identifies deviations to avoid outages. Detailed alarm notifications with clear measures ensure that the user keeps the equipment at highest availability. 


ESSENTIALoptimize is connecting the dots in the entire spinning mill. By providing a comprehensive picture of process deviations, e.g. quality faults, the system makes it possible to link machine performance and events. This brings completely new possibilities and revolutionizes process optimization in the spinning mill.​


ESSENTIALpredict applies machine learning algorithms to sensor data of ESSENTIALmaintain and compares the running behavior of similar machine types. As soon as running behavior deviates from the standards, the operator receives a message containing clear instructions from Rieter on how to avoid a potential outage.
