Abstract

Ring spinning is the most common method used among the short staple fibers spinning methods. Due to limitations of the production speed in the ring spinning, new spinning methods become more popular with each passing day. Air-jet spinning systems gathered attention with their market share in the new spinning methods. In this study, the properties of the air-jet yarns were comparatively analyzed with the properties of the equivalent Ring yarns, for both single and ply-twisted forms. It was found that the Rieter and Murata air-jet yarns do not show significant differences in terms of physical properties of yarns. Due to their special structure, air-jet yarns show lower hairiness and tenacity values when compared to the equivalent Ring yarns.
