The yarn count is one of the key parameters of a yarn. For the end-use as well as for the production it is essential that the yarn count is correct. If the yarn count is too high, too much material will be used. If the yarn count is too low, the yarn is too thin. In both cases, it is not meeting the requirements of the customer and mix-ups with the other yarn counts will lead to eye-catching faults in any kind of fabric.
Therefore, the yarn count is checked regularly and most frequently in a spinning mill. By integrating a balance into the YARNMAP and by transferring the pre-set length of yarn automatically to the balance, the count can be measured automatically.
