VORTEX Spinning Machine
While the fashion world has sought individuality through a variety of value systems and self-expression, the textiles that support that industry have become increasingly globalized. It is for this reason that we look to a single yarn to provide new added value.
“VORTEX® spinning” is a technology which uses an air vortex to spin out the yarn. Fibers formed by these air flows possess a unique structure, and this provides the yarn with a wide range of functionalities.
The VORTEX® spinning, which only Muratec has successfully implemented, is creating a new wave in the world of fashion.
VORTEX’s Three Challenges
-Technical Development, Higher Spinning Speed, Variety of Count Range and Materials.
In 1990’s Muratec successfully invented the new spinning principle, named as “VORTEX spinning”. Yarns produced by this VORTEX spinning have features different from those produced by other spinning methods.
The VORTEX yarn is spun directly from slivers and wound to packages.
VORTEX III 870 which was released in 2011 achieved a maximum speed of 500m/min. Since then, we have steadily built up a track record of success and trust in high-speed spinning and achieved a maximum speed of 550m/min. with the 870 EX.
Expansion of Applicable Range of Spinning Materials and Yarn Counts
While reflecting past experience and customer opinion in each of its products, Muratec has continued to prove spinning results with various materials and yarn counts. Currently, it supports the widest range of materials and yarn counts with a single machine.
