Murata Celebrates Mach Splicer's 30th Anniversary

It has been 30 years since Japan-based Murata Machinery Ltd. invented the Mach Splicer. The company originally introduced the splicer at the International Exhibition of Textile Machinery (ITMA) in 1979.

Using compressed air, the splicer joins two ends of yarn without the need for a knot, a process that improves the quality of a spun yarn. The original Mach Splicer was suitable for splicing cotton yarns, but Murata also currently offers splicers for wool, linen and core spun yarns. Murata says its research and development efforts in splicing technology are ongoing, with the aim of advancing the technology.
