This factory is the producer of spun-blended yarn and is famous for producing quality yarns since 1979. This particular factory uses synthetic fibre (polyester) to make yarn.It imports its raw material from Noida. It is equipped with most modern and state of the art spinning machinery, including auto corners from Savio Italy and Tfo's, dyeing machines and colour computers. It has recently installed spindle capacity of around 40,000 spindles and producing approximately 12 billion yarns per annum. The yarn spinning process starts from dyeing the white polyester fibre into various colours, is washed and then dried in the Blowroom. The next step is carding where the fibres are separated and pulled into a paralel form .This is then sent to the daufer to condense them to web.Then its combined to make it more uniform and smoother.In the end roving is done and finally the fibre is spun on ring frames to produce big rolls of yarns. The students had an enthralling experience after visiting both the factories and enjoyed the visit very much . The trip helped the students in enhancing their knowledge.
