Schlafhorst Introduces Universal Spinning Navel

Schlafhorst IntroducesUniversal Spinning NavelGermany-based W. Schlafhorst AGandCo. has developed a new spinning navel, KS K 4, for universal use in spinning yarns for knitting and weaving applications. The company claims the new navel enables spinning of yarn having enhanced quality and superior performance in downstream production processes.In knitting, fiber fly from yarns spun using the KS K 4 is significantly reduced and cleaning intervals are extended, according to Schlafhorst. In weaving operations, the processing of such yarns can lead to reduced costs associated with air consumption by air-jet weaving machines.April 2001
