What was once an arduous process done by hand is now a highly specialized industrial technique. Combing the raw fibers that are used to make a thread or yarn is industry in and of itself. In this sector, the short fibers that carry unwanted plant material are removed, small impurities that still remain after the caring are separated and the fibers are processed.

This might seem like a waste, but these impurities are not beneficial to the

All this improves the uniformity of fiber length which is essential to achieve very fine yarns of good quality and strength.

The short fibers removed give rise to the sub product which is transported pneumatically to a press.

With regard to the production values stops achieved with state-of-the-art equipment fully automated, the order of ~70-75 kg per hour is reached, corresponding to about 500 strokes of the comb with a density of 80 gr/m. This high production is achieved thanks to computer synchronization throughout the line.

Costs today have been reduced dramatically compared to previous-generation machines, as significant energy savings have been achieved, fewer minor styling erasers thanks to excellent fiber selection and high machine efficiency and short machine downtime, among other improvements.

The fully automatic roll changer and thread splicer produce the best splice quality and the automatic roll transport system complete the features in the modern styling systems. Through these innovations the modern system was able to improve over the past machines
