Friction spinning

Friction spinning is a spinning system in which the yarn receives its twist by being rolled along the longitudinal axis in the nip between two revolving surfaces. The surfaces may rotate at the same or different speeds in the same or opposite directions depending on the particular machine design. Potential advantages include high production capacity, the low stress in the fibre in processing, and the capacity to produce fine counts. See S-twist, Z-twist and Optimum Twist
