Automatic Winding Machine Autoconer X6

Benchmark in winding and splicing quality
  1. Significantly lower energy consumption
  2. More production with superior splicing quality
  3. Intelligent process automation

Product details

The Autoconer X6 winds various staple fiber yarns into process-optimized packages. The winding machine impresses with maximum productivity, intelligent process automation and ergonomic operation. The excellent figures for winding and splicing quality are well-known on the market.

The innovative Multilink and Multilot options make automation even more flexible, cost effective and space-saving. With these new solutions the Autoconer X6 can be linked to up to four ring spinning machines and is able to process up to four different materials.

20% less energy consumption thanks to energy-efficient drives and intelligent technology


Sensor-controlled processes, autocalibration functions and the powerful package doffer perceptibly reduces the workload. The Autoconer X6 is resource-efficient and fulfills the highest production requirements. Intelligent systems such as Smartcycle, the upper yarn sensor, Smartjet and Launch Control ensure short piecing cycles and minimize yarn wastage. Linked systems operate at the highest level of efficiency due to the optimal balancing of their spinning and winding capacities. The modern material flow ensures maximum process reliability thanks to software-controlled material management.

With the open prism splice technology, the customer can benefit from improvements in the splice process, splice quality and in handling


The open-prism splice technology (OZ1, OZ2) enables spliced joints that are indistinguishable from the parent yarn, cover the complete range of cotton yarns, cotton blends and cotton based elastic yarns. Technology systems such as Autotense FX, Propack FX, Ecopack FX and Preci FX produce suitable packages for any type of downstream processing stage. The reproducibility, long-term stability and consistency of the quality is ensured by setting all winding and splicing parameters centrally. Using the Spindle Identification System (SPID), which is integrated into the link system, every spinning mill is able to achieve the highest quality level.

With the Multilink and Multilot material flow configuration, automation becomes even more flexible and cost-effective


The Autoconer X6 has an impressive modular design. This covers automation levels ranging from manual cops feed (type RM) through to the direct link, type V. With Multilink and Multilot, Rieter offers customers the most flexible automation solution on the market. With Multilink, customers can design the spinning layout according to their needs.

These intelligent process automation solutions lead to maximum flexibility and efficiency.

The Autoconer X6 is set up for processing all types of staple fiber yarn. It produces cylindrical or conical packages, and dye packages or hard packages in various formats ranging from 3 to 6 inches.

Economical Cop Processing

There are three machine types for cop processing, each offering a different level of automation.


Typ RM

Typ D

Typ V

Cop feedA stand-alone machine with manual cop feed in a circular magazineA stand-alone machine with automatic cop feed via the flat circular conveyor and automatic material flowDirect link to the ring spinning machine with direct cop feed and automatic material flow


  • Ring-Winder-Connect in ESSENTIALoptimize

    The Rieter ring and compact-spinning machines form an intelligent subsystem with the winding machine Autoconer X6. Proven monitoring systems are already integrated: ISM premium in the ring spinning machine, SPID online quality monitoring in the winding machine. The new Ring-Winder-Connect module compares and analyzes data from both machines. The integration into ESSENTIALoptimize creates a new level of process optimization.
