What is textile winding and how do we do it at Intorsa?

Textile winding is a necessary process to properly handle the raw material, the previously manufactured yarn.

Today we will talk about what is and what is the process of textile winding, we will explain the machines and systems that we use in our firm, to wind the threads created automatically and with great precision.

What is textile winding?

The objective of textile winding is to gather the threads that have been formed previously in the spinning process. Depending on the type of thread, it will be made with some tensions or with others, always taking into account the resistance capacity of the threads so as not to end up breaking it or fraying it.

Once the yarn has been obtained, it must be conditioned and for this purpose 4 types of conditioning are carried out, the winding being one of them favouring the subsequent process, the phases prior to weaving.

The winding of the thread is usually done for the threads that are used as filling threads or weft threads (the threads that go transversally to the fabric).

The winding process

In our factory we use the latest technology machines that are capable of winding polyester and polyamide yarns at very high speeds and in a matter of minutes.

The bobbin picks up the thread that has been previously manufactured taking into account the tension generated by the thread, the diameter of the bobbin feeder and the variations of the feed course. 

The SSM and FADIS are machines with state-of-the-art technology which monitor and adapt themselves by means of intelligent systems to the speed and tension of the wire. They also have braking systems in the event that something should fail, so as not to damage either the wire or the coil in question.

Each machine is capable of covering between 6 and 10 bobbins, allowing an increase of between 10% and 20% if we talk about the density of the dye package together with the automatic doffer system to maximize production.
