Compact Spinning

Highest flexibility, perfect yarn structure

The Rieter compact-spinning machines produce fully compacted premium yarns (Com4®compact). In compact spinning, the fibers are compacted before spinning and thus optimally integrated into the yarn body. The compact yarn produced in this way convinces with a unique yarn structure and unique yarn properties. The flexibility of the compact-spinning machines and the compacting system is demonstrated in the versatile yarn variations and applications.

The new add-on compacting devices COMPACTdrum, COMPACTapron and COMPACTeasy are simple to install and remove, enabling switching between ring yarn and compact yarn. The yarns fulfill a range of different customer requirements – very high yarn tenacity and reduction in hairiness. The proven EliTe® compact-spinning system from Suessen complements Rieter’s range of compacting solutions.
