This article discusses the fundamentals of the use of compact yarn in weaving. Compact yarn is a compacted yarn ring with low hairiness. The delivery cylinder on the ring-spinning machine is fitted with a perforated drum, complete with a suction insert and air guide element which, in combination with partial vacuum, bundle or compact the fibers after drafting. This simple operation results in a hitherto unequalled yarn structure. Spinners can exploit the advantages of compact spinning technology in various ways. The advantages of compact yarn are especially evident on the weaving machine. Efficiency in particular is positively influenced. Greater and more uniform strength, combined with significantly reduced hairiness, improve running characteristics.
