PINTER CAIPO demonstrates new yarn spinning machine featuring INVISTA’s dualFX® technology by LYCRA® brand at Denim by Première Vision
INVISTA, owner of the LYCRA® fibre brand and one of the world’s largest integrated producers of fibres and polymers, is sponsoring Denim by Première Vision on the 19th and 20th of November in Barcelona where the company will promote its latest innovations to the denim industry. As part of the activities, PINTER CAIPO, a Spanish producer of cutting-edge yarn spinning equipment, will be demonstrating its spintester machine Merlin equipped with its new 3D creel which makes “dual core” yarns with INVISTA’s dualFX® technology by LYCRA® brand. A revolutionary solution patented by INVISTA, dualFX® technology by LYCRA® brand allows mills to develop fabrics with high stretch, good recovery, and excellent dimensional stability using a combination of LYCRA® fibre and LYCRA® T400® fibre in a single yarn.
According to Adrià Serra, Managing Director of PINTER CAIPO, the demand for high stretch fabrics with good recovery continues to grow, and yarns made with INVISTA’s dualFX® technology by LYCRA® brand allow mills to achieve the best balance of stretch and recovery properties. For this reason, Pinter’s new 3D Dual Core creel was designed to use LYCRA® T400® fibre exclusively as one of the core yarns.
Merlin’s ring spinning frame features a unique 3D creel customised for LYCRA® T400® fibre bobbins. This new creel has three decks of rollers – the first unwinds the LYCRA® fibre and the two upper decks unwind the LYCRA® T400® fibre, which allows for not only ease of operation but also accurate tension control, which is critical for fabric consistency.
INVISTA and PINTER CAIPO began working on the new machines in 2012 with the aim of providing customers with a means to achieve excellent quality, high performing stretch fabrics that keep their shape. The equipment is currently available for purchase and can be seen in action at the PINTER CAIPO stand (B29) at Denim by PV with a special demonstration and presentation with both companies on the 19th at 10:30am.
