Textile Technology Know-How

Rieter has unique expertise in textile technology. This is an important component for the optimization of processes in spinning mills and the development of new machines. Rieter customers are assisted by process recommendations and machine settings taken from the results of research.

From fiber to yarn and beyond to the textile surface – these extensive tests always take the entire process into account. This is the only way to ensure that the results are classified correctly, allowing conclusions to be made.

The Ideal Rotor Spinning Process for a High Short-Fiber Content

Which process sequence for rotor spinning is ideal if the raw material has a high proportion of short fibers? The results of our study show that shortening a process can bring huge advantages in terms of costs and quality.

Twin Yarn As an Interesting Option for Yarn Producers

Spin-twisted yarn is an interesting alternative to conventional ply yarn. It offers advantages not only with regard to cost efficiency, but also in terms of yarn hairiness and pilling in knitted fabric. Combined with spinning on a compact-spinning machine, this offers new possibilities.

Do harvesting methods play a role?

Two of today’s standard methods of mechanical cotton harvesting were compared with each other, and each process was examined closely from ginning through to the knitted fabric. Were there any differences? And what conclusions could be drawn from this?
