Reliance, Rieter Team Up To Adapt Fiber Spinning Processes

Reliance Industries Ltd., India, and Switzerland-based Rieter Machine Works Ltd. recently celebrated the opening of the new Reliance Fiber Application Center in Patalanga, India. The new center includes a complete Rieter trial process line, which will be used to conduct joint trials with the goal of adapting Reliance's polyester fiber properties and/or Rieter's spinning machinery to gain maximum suitability of both fiber and spinning processes for targeted downstream applications.

The Reliance/Rieter partnership will enable Reliance to test the performance of newly developed fibers on Rieter machinery before offering them to its customers. It is expected that changing the fiber properties and fine-tuning the machinery as needed will lead to enhanced performance of the fibers and improved operational efficiency for spinners.
