Guangxi Baisheng Textile is to install the first complete Rieter J 70 air-jet spinning line at its plant in Guangxi, China, to further ensure a steady yarn supply for its knitting operations.

The project will elevate automation levels and reduce conversion costs at Baisheng’s plant, setting a new benchmark in air-jet spinning in terms of quality and productivity.

The J 70 offers exceptional production efficiency, with 200 individually automated spinning units that independently manage quality cuts and natural ends down quickly and efficiently. It has a delivery speed of up to 600 metres per minute and supports up to four lots simultaneously. In addition, Rieter’s latest generation yarn clearer identifies weak yarn during production, ensuring top quality.

The previous installation of Rieter cards, draw frames and winding machines at Baisheng Textile combined with ongoing after-sales have resulted in a strong collaboration between the machine builder and its customer.

“Together with Rieter, we will set an all-new benchmark in the industry, elevating the quality and productivity of air-jet spinning to unprecedented levels,” said Guangxi Baisheng chairman Yiyu Zhan.

“This cutting-edge spinning system will enable Baisheng Textile to achieve a new level of competitiveness and expand its industry leadership,” added Michael Hubensteiner, managing director of Rieter China.
