Part one provides an introduction to yarn fibre spinning and structure. Chapters discuss the principles of ring spinning and open-end spinning of yarns. Yarn structure and properties from different spinning techniques and yarn structural requirements for knitted and woven fabrics are also examined. Part two covers advances in particular yarn spinning technologies. Topics range from siro spinning to compact spinning technology and air-jet spinning. Final chapters explore how to minimise fibre damage which occur during spinning and the use of spin finishes for textiles.
With its distinguished editor and array of international contributors, Advances in yarn spinning technology is an important text for spinners, yarn manufacturers and fabric producers, as well as researchers, technicians, engineers and technologists in this sector of the textile industry.
- Documents advances in spinning technologies and presents comparisons between systems
- Assesses particular textile spinning technologies with specific chapters focusing on siro, compact, rotor, friction and air-jet spinning
- Reviews measures to minimise fibre damage caused by spinning are investigated with specific relevance to rotor and friction spinning
