CCI hosts technical seminars at spinning mills in India

Oct '19
The Cotton Council International (CCI), the National Cotton Council’s (NCC) export promotion arm, recently hosted technical seminars in India to discuss manufacturing process improvements with mills using US cotton. The seminar provided a forum for interaction between local spinning mills, the Cotton USA technical team, and leading textile machinery firms.

More than 100 participants representing 42 textile mills and three U.S. cotton merchants attended the Cotton USA technical seminar in India. The participating mills’ total cotton usage in 2018 was more than five million bales, which account for more than 20 per cent of cotton mill use in India. Fifteen Cotton USA licensee mills participated and bought more than 300,000 bales of US cotton in 2018/19, according to CCI.

The agenda included spinning best practices, Cotton USA technical benefits, how to manage consistent quality using US cotton, cotton trade, and economics, and the US Cotton Trust Protocol. The Cotton USA team presented US cotton sustainability goals for 2025, the US Cotton Trust Protocol, US cotton’s traceability, microfibre study results, and independent studies on technical gems of US cotton.

Uster discussed how to manage consistent quality with mixed lot procurement and how raw material handling is the key factor in achieving the consistent quality. Rieter presented on the winning combination of US cotton and Rieter system, with a focus on the most critical attributes of cotton and the correct process to achieve the right yarn quality.

The seminar ended with a Q&A session during which the Cotton USA team and the technology companies addressed spinning mills’ queries.
