Oerlikon Schlafhorst, Germany, reports its Fancynation plug-and-play design program enables
flexible production of up to five fancy yarns or a combination of smooth and fancy yarns on the
Autocoro 8 rotor-spinning machine.
The company reports Autocoro 8 enables spinning mills to customize production by programming
the number of spinning positions needed to produce a particular lot, with no limitations on lot
size, thereby making small-lot production affordable. Fancynation is installed on a personal
computer, and the design data are easily transferred to the Autocoro 8.
