What is Ring spinning?
A process of spinning in which the yarn is twisted and drawn while passing through a small metal device travelling rapidly around a ring in the operation of winding the yarn onto a bobbin.

What is the Rotor spinning?
Rotor spinning (a type of open-end spinning), in which fibres are detached from the card sliver and twisted, within a rotor, as they are joined to the end of the yarn.

What is Air-jet spinning?
Air-jet spinning is a pneumatic method which consists of passing a drafted strand of fibres through one or two fluid nozzles located between the front roller of a drafting system and a take up a device. This process employs an air-jet to rotate the fibre strands and twist them into a yarn.

What is Friction spinning?
Friction spinning is an 'open-end' or a 'core-type' form of spinning (or both), in which the yarn formation takes place with the aid of frictional forces in the spinning zone. Friction- spun yarns are characterized by a distinct wrapper surface.
