Linz Textil is one of the leading spinning and weaving companies in Europe with several production sites in Austria. As one of the first customers, Linz is successfully producing with the new J 20 air-jet spinning machine. With the acquisition of the ComforJet license, Linz is also one of the first certified suppliers of ComforJet yarns.

New yarn with new properties
The form of the yarn construction on the air-jet spinning machine, turbulence from an air stream in a spinning nozzle, results in a new type of yarn structure. Typical features are the very low hairiness, the smooth yarn surface and the associated soft and voluminous yarn character. This yarn from the Rieter air-jet spinning machine is marketed under the brand name ComforJet. It creates many benefits, not only in downstream processing but also in the end product and opens up new areas of application.

Licence package from Rieter
Rieter actively promotes the supply sources for licensed yarns and also provides a direct link to the licensee via the Rieter website. Customers who have decided in favour of a yarn license additionally have the option of exploiting the know-how of the Rieter specialists and being supported by them in specific projects. Also with their own marketing activities, licensed customers receive support from Rieter.
