 Open end spinning:

Open end spinning includes different types of system:

  1. Rotor spinning
  2. Friction spinning
  3. Vortex spinning
  4. Axis spinning
  5. Mule spinning (continuous)

Among the systems mentioned above, Rotor spinning has higher popularity than others.

Rotor spinning system:

By the advent of Rotor spinning the cost of production has reduced and on the other hand, the speed has increased efficiently. In Ring spinning system spindles could rotate at speeds up to 25,000 rpm which makes the yarn twisted and ring rails movement guides the thread onto the bobbin into the shape required, these processes are high energy consuming and reduce the speed. In Rotor spinning system by having a shorter product line, fewer operator and less needed energy the final cost of products reduces.

 Main parts of the Rotor spinning system:

Guide channel

Feed roller and feed plate

Opening roller

Trash

Transport channel

Rotor

Doffing tube

Production process:

In Rotor spinning system the feed is sliver and the product is Rotor yarn. At the first stage, the sliver passes through the sliver guide, and then passes among feed plate and feed roller. The opening roller is after the feed plate and rotates rapidly and separates the fibers, by the transport channel, separated fibers enter the rotor and start to rotate. In the rotor, fibers start to fall down into the central groove because of the Centrifugal forces and vacuum in the rotor and fibers are collected there to form fibers ring. At the yarn formation stage, a spun yarn end emerges in the groove. The yarn end rotates around its axis and continuously twists-in the fibers deposited in the rotor groove, by these actions fibers continuously go into the yarn structure and the yarn which is formed in the rotor is continuously taken off.

In the rotor spinning the diameter and the speed of the rotor and opening roller are adjustable and this is very important that the speed of entrance and output should be same; in otherwise the yarn would break.

Properties of rotor yarn compared to the ring yarn:

Ring yarnOpen end(Rotor yarn)
Higher breaking strengthHigher elongation at break
Better handleHarder handle
Higher hairinessLower hairiness
Higher smoothnessHigher abrasion resistance
Higher lusterGreater volume
Higher stiffness
Higher ability for absorbing dye and water
Lower piling
Higher cover coefficient

 

End usages for open end yarn:

Corduroy, velveteen, rain wear, denims, sheets, pillow cases, bed spreads, printed fabrics, curtains,  upholstery, carpet, blankets, towel.
