String-up Efficiency Improvement

String-up Efficiency Improvement

String-up efficiency is a critical component in the man-made fibre yarn production process. A number of factors impact string-up efficiency, including yarn tension and polymer type. Our dedicated man-made fibre team has completed a number of string-up projects.

String-up Efficiency Benefits:

  • Save costs – no wasted product
  • Reduce waste – minimise unused polymers
  • Avoid downgrades – string-up failures can cause producers to downgrade the quality of the yarn
  • Improve process – improved productivity and capacity

Hi-Radius Core

Our Hi-Radius core has a smooth, rounded edge on the unwinding end, which allows the producer to avoid using plastic caps. This solution is especially effective if our customer is spinning and texturizing the yarn in-house.
