The Rieter compact-spinning system with COMPACTdrum is renowned for consistently high yarn tenacity, low hairiness and maximum flexibility. Customers who opt for this system also benefit from lower production costs compared to a spinning mill with machines from various manufacturers. The cash flow generated demonstrates the outstanding economy of the complete system, which is perfectly synchronized and is supplied from one source.
- High tenacity and low hairiness
- Very good raw material utilization
- Significant energy saving
In this example, a compact-spinning system is used to produce combed cotton yarn with a count of Ne 60 for shirting fabrics. The raw material is a medium staple cotton. A “mixed spinning mill”, which is equipped with machines from two different manufacturers, was used for comparison. The unique yarn characteristics, such as the low hairiness of the compact yarn produced on the ring spinning machine G 38 with the compacting device COMPACTdrum, can lead to a higher yarn price. However, the case study does not take this benefit of using Rieter machines into account, and is instead based on raw material prices and yarn prices for both systems being the same.
