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.

Combing Recycled Cotton Blends

With the potential of reducing the short-fiber content and the number of neps, the combed process is very interesting for recycled cotton blends. Rieter trials show how to successfully use the comber for spinning recycled ring and compact yarns.

The Influence of Tuft and Draw Frame Blending on the Intermediate and End Product

Blending can take place at different process steps in the spinning process – during fiber preparation or on the draw frame. How does this affect the sliver, the yarn, and the textile surface? To answer this, Rieter has developed a guideline that analyzes when each blending system is most suitable, considering the end spinning process and varying polyester content.

The Increasing Importance of Recycling in the Staple-Fiber Spinning Process

Rieter is committed to close the textile cycle. Check out the results of our latest study on how to spin not only rotor, but also ring yarn with a considerable amount of post-consumer material on your Rieter system.

New Possibilities with Air-Jet Spinning Using Spun-Dyed Viscose Fibers

Check out the results of a study which show that processing spun-dyed viscose fibers on an air-jet spinning system has great advantages in terms of quality and efficiency. In addition, dyeing fibers already during the manufacturing has a reduced environmental impact compared to the complex and expensive process of dyeing the textile fabric.

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?
