Spinning machine is a major cost factor in a spinning mill, as the graph.


If we improve in spinning machine process, we can save substantial amount. Following is the improvement achieved primarily by


  • Development in rings and travelers
  • Online take off device (Doffer)
  • Reducing the ring diameter
  • Reducing ends down frequency
  • Combining the ring spinning machine and the automatic winder into a production unit
  • Developing new concept "FOR" twist device
