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.
According to the company, 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.
