Cotton is ready to be ordered only after instrument classing establishes the quality parameters for each bale. The marketing of cotton is a complex operation that includes all transactions.
The blended lint is blown by air from the feeder through chutes to cleaning and carding machines that separete and align the fibers into a thin web. Carding machines can process cotton in excess of hundreds kg per hour. The web of fibers at the front of the card is then drawn through a funnel-shaped device called a trumpet, providing a soft, rope-like strand called a sliver (slyver)!
As many as eight strands of sliver are blended together in the drawing proxess. Roving frames draw or draft the slivers out even more thinly and add a gentle twist as the first step in ring spinning of yarn. Our rotors can spin five to six times as fast as a ring spinning machine. In open-end spinning, yarn is produced directly from the sliver. The roving process is eliminated.
After spinning the yarns are tightly wound around bobbins or tubes and are ready for fabric forming. Ply yarns are two or more single yarns twisted together. Cord is plied yarn twisted together.
