Improvement in spinning of yarn from dyed fibre
In India, the textile industry is the second largest sector, next only to agriculture in terms of its contribution to income (GDP) and employment of the nation. For centuries, it is evolving in process of production, varieties and quality of products and technological progress and cost effectiveness. From the stage of raw cotton to final products, the industry have processes like ginning, spinning, weaving, dyeing and processing and garmenting.
Stepping up to Total Contamination Control
Spinners are increasingly seeking to take control of the level of contamination in yarn. They need to meet customers’ quality demands exactly, using foolproof but flexible methods which also take account of mill efficiency, minimising waste and optimising productivity. This case study focuses on an Indian yarn manufacturer which originally invested in early-stage fibre cleaning in 2009, and has since upgraded to Total Contamination Control, combining the USTER® JOSSI VISION SHIELD and USTER® QUANTUM 3.

At a customer in southern India, the rare opportunity presented itself to carry out a direct comparison of the blowroom and card waste. Running parallel there are a Rieter blowroom and carding section as well as a preparation line from another manufacturer, each with practically the same year of construction and almost the same production rate.
