The solution for these requirements is a quality twist with an
elastic core. This high-tech product is called ElastoTwist.
ElastoTwist yarns are produced exclusively on Hamel machinery
in the hollow spindle process. Un-elastic natural or man-made fibres are
wound around the elastane core and cover it. Thus the yarn acquires the
look and feel of the elastic core yarn.
ElastoTwist combines tradition with progress and elegance with
comfort. It ensures a secure future, creates a new feeling of comfort
and opens new doors for creativity. ElastOTwist is therefore more than
just a production process - it embodies the life style of today.
ElastoTwist means more security for all downstream processors
and consumers. The elastane core is not twisted, it is truly
covered and thus ideally protected. This leads to a drastic
improvement in the retraction power of the finished fabrics.
ElastoTwist has the special twist for more elasticity with this
Behind ElastoTwist stands the Hamel hollow-spindle process backed by
the latest technology. Optimal textile technological features can be
archieved with the twisting machine ElastoTwister. Equipped with
completely enclosed spindles, the ElastoTwister is the only
machine in the world wich allows twisting without air resistance and
without thread balloon.

The elastane core is fed from the separate feeding device through the
hollow spindle from below. Leaving the spindle, the staple material is
twisted with a very low tension and wrapped around the elastane core.
The elastane core is not twisted.
|In the twisting process only a very low mechanical strain
occurs, thus there are hardly any thread breaks. The process offers
enormous quality advantages and high flexibility.
- no soiling by fibre fly
- low and even thread tension
- low hairiness
- even wrapping around the elastane
- elastane core does not obtain any twist.
ElastoTwist means customer specific solutions for the growing market
for stretch products. In the count number of Nm 10/2 to 200/2 (elastane
range 22 to 156 dtex).
ElastoTwist means more comfort with a fantastic feeling of
comfort never before attained. Fabrics are given more elasticity and
ElastoTwist means better quality. Because it is a real and
complete covering process. Twisting and wrapping at the same time. As
the elastane is not twisted, the yarn elasticity is always fully
ElastoTwist means more dimensional stability. All clothes
withstand bagging and creasing. They keep their shape and appearance,
even after many washes and cleanings.
ElastoTwist leads to an attractive look, silhouettes show smooter
outlines, unstructured fabrics keep their shape. The feel and look of
the fabrics improve.
ElastoTwist opens new doors for creativity. Styling gets a new
dimension and new looks and images can be created for the
ElastoTwist means more profitability in the whole downstream
processing of the elastic fabrics. Thread breaks are almost eliminated,
handling is easier and there is less second choice.

Thanks to the closed pot spindles, the covering process on the
ElastoTwister can be carried out at much higher spindle speeds and
package weights compared to conventional covering systems.
