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 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.


  • Compact-spinning machine K 48

    The compact-spinning machine K 48 produces compact yarns with highest performance and lowest energy consumption. The fully electronic drafting system FLEXIdraft provides extraordinary flexibility to the machine. The integrated individual spindle monitoring system ISM premium ensures a high level of machine efficiency.

  • Compact-spinning machine K 47

    The compact-spinning machine K 47 produces compact yarns using an extremely low amount of energy. With the semi-electronic drafting system, the machine meets all requirements for an economical yarn production. The integrated individual spindle monitoring system ISM basic can save about 3% of the personnel costs and makes the K 47 a highly efficient machine.

  • Piecing robot ROBOspin

    The piecing robot ROBOspin repairs ends down in Rieter ring and compact-spinning machines. Automating this process ensures a high productivity, reduces labor costs and makes the operational organization of the spinning mill easier.

  • Compacting device COMPACTapron

    COMPACTapron takes yarn strengths to new heights thanks to a unique 3D technology that guides fibers smartly though the compacting zone.

  • Compacting device COMPACTdrum

    The compacting device COMPACTdrum for the Rieter ring spinning machine is easy to install and remove. It adds a new dimension to reducing hairiness, which impresses customers along with the very low production costs. The device processes all raw materials and covers all yarn counts.

  • Compacting device COMPACTeasy

    The compacting device COMPACTeasy is the new mechanical compacting solution that is attracting customers thanks to its low investment costs. COMPACTeasy produces yarns with excellent characteristics from all standard raw materials. This is based on the intensive double compacting that does not require any additional energy.

  • New EliTe compact spinning system

    This pneumatic compact-spinning concept ensures high machine efficiency and the best yarn quality while minimizing yarn parameter variations between spinning positions.
