- To have a better control over yarn realisation and wastes, the mill must test the quality, ie, trash% of cotton waste materials in at least 10% of the bales per lot and arrive at the average mixing quality based on which, the mill must calculate the expected yarn realisation and compare it with the actual.
- Com4® - the yarn brand from Rieter - has been an established name in the textile industry for more than a decade.

- The influence of rotor speed, rotor groove, type of navel and winding tension on yarn property and spinning performance, and concludes spiral groove and plain smooth navel give better yarn quality and grooved navel gives better spinning performance in coarse counts.
- At the last year's 9th India International Textile Machinery Exhibition (India-ITME 2012) held in Mumbai, most of the companies offering technologies for spinning mills presented some newly-launched machines and wares.
- The quality characteristics such as single yarn strength, yarn elongation and rupture per kilometre of yarn are directly proportional to the ratio of polyester with viscose in the blend in airjet spinning
- Given the economic realities and the dominance of man-made fibres over natural fibres today, direct spinning can be a viable option for increased profitability and efforts have to be made to develop appropriate direct spinning technologies.
The per capita nonwoven fabric consumption in India, which was 155 gm sometime ago, is expected to touch to 350 gm by 2015 and 600 gm by 2020, whereas the per capita consumption of nonwovens in developed markets such as US and Western Europe is around 3 - 3.5 kg. The global market for nonwovens is around...
