The flax fiber bundle is sorted into specified diameter and weight of flax fiber bunches. During sorting, short fiber, flax grass, flax scrap and other debris are picked out to make the flax fiber retained its original identical form. After flax fiber sorted, it will become more supple, tough and shiny.
The flax fiber processed is combed into longer size and higher strength of flax stripes. After hackling, the fiber will be straight and parallel, the fineness of the fiber is increased to meet the quality requirement for yarn spinning.
The uneven sized flax stripes are combined and different thickness of flax stripes can be overlapped. The flax stripes are splitting and sorting further by means of stretching method and they are divided into thinner fibers for next production process. Meanwhile, during this process, impurities and shorter fibers can be removed.
The flax stripes are stretched further, spun into twisted yarn stripes and winded into appropriate package (namely winded on a special spool). Flax stripes are stretched and splitted, removing impurities and giving appropriate twist, to make them achieving certain strength so as to withstand the tensile of winding and unwinding. This will offer more benefits for the stretching of fine yarn and the handling of subsequent procedures.
The roved flax fibers are treated in chemical process, to remove the non-spinning substances, such as Lignin, Pectin and Hemicellulose, and to increase the split of fibers, improve the strength of roved fiber and reduce the breakage rate of yarn.
After stretching, twisting and winding, the fibers are spun into the yarn with specified thickness, twist and strength, and met the national quality standards to facilitate the next production process.
Wet yarn is put into dryer to remove excess moisture, to facilitate next production processes of storage, transportation and sale.
The dried yarn is winding onto a cone and makes it become larger sized product, to facilitate next production processes of transportation, storage and sale. During winding, the thick, fine or cotton knots and other defects are removed, to ensure the yarn neat and smooth.
The quality characteristics of product are measured by inspector by means of special equipment, and compared the result with the specified quality standard, and to determine that the product is passed or failed.
The yarn cone is visually checked and then packaged for storage and transportation.
The packaged product is put into warehouse storage and the storage information is updated.
