Frequently asked questions

Frequently asked questions related to VORTEX are introduced.

We will answer your frequently asked questions.

Q01

What is VORTEX?

OpenOpen

A01

VORTEX is the name of a spinning machine developed and manufactured by Murata Machinery, Ltd. The yarn produced by the spinning machine is called VORTEX yarn. (Note: Although it may be called "MVS", this is an abbreviated name for the spinning machine "Murata Vortex Spinner".)

Q02

Can VORTEX yarn be produced by other spinning machines?

OpenOpen

A02

Although typical production methods of staple yarns are Ring spinning and Open-end spinning, VORTEX spinning is a third method developed by Murata Machinery. As VORTEX yarn is produced using a unique principle of yarn formation, it cannot be produced by other spinning machines. (For details, see the page on the principles of spinning)

Q03

What is the spinning method of VORTEX?

OpenOpen

A03

In both Ring spinning and open-end spinning, fibers are twisted by mechanical means in order to form a yarn. In VORTEX spinning, a vortex of compressed air having no moving parts, is used to form a yarn.

Q04

Can the number of twists of VORTEX yarn be measured and adjusted?

OpenOpen

A04

As fibers are not mechanically twisted in VORTEX spinning, the number of twists cannot be mechanically set. In ring spinning, the number of twists is adjusted according to the application. However, in VORTEX spinning, the strength of the compressed air vortex and the spinning speed are used for adjustment.

Q05

What kinds of fibers can be spun by a VORTEX spinning machine?

OpenOpen

A05

Basically, short fibers used for normal staple yarns, (2 inches (51mm) or shorter), can be spun. However, fibers with very high elongation or fibers inappropriate for a vortex of compressed air may be difficult to spin.

Q06

What is a VORTEX PARTNER?

OpenOpen

A06

Spinners who give us permission to publicize their use of Murata Machinery VORTEX spinning machines, and other enterprises or groups who endorse and support VORTEX promotion activities with Murata Machinery.
