Ply Yarn Calculations
• Ply Yarn Calculations

The yarn, which consists of two or more yarns being folded and twisted together, is called plied (floater) yarn.

These yarns are obtained in doubling and twisting machines. These yarns are produced for the following purposes:

>>> Obtaining more durable yarn

>>> Obtaining smoother yarn

>>> To give a color effect to the yarn

>>> To obtain fancy yarn with certain properties by twisting yarns of different colors, types and numbers.

Two methods are used to calculate the number of ply twisted yarn:

>>> Floater calculation according to the length system

>>> Floater calculation according to weight system

Calculating the Ply Yarn (Flator) in the Length Numbering System

N1= Number of first single ply yarn

N2= Number of second single ply yarn

N3= Number of third single ply yarn

N4=Number of fourth single ply yarn

Nz = Pleated yarn count

Finding the number of two-ply yarns (floaters)

Finding the number of tri-ply yarns (floaters)

Finding the number of four ply yarns (floaters)

If N1=30Nm, N2=40Nm then Nz=Nm?

If N1=24Nip, N2=12Nip then Nz=Nip?

N1=32Nike, N2=42Nike, N3=12Nike Nz=Nike?

If Nz=10Nm, N2=30Nm then N1 =Nm?

Calculation of Ply Yarn (Flator) in Weight Numbering System

N1= Number of first single ply yarn

N2= Number of second single ply yarn

Nz = Pleated yarn count

Finding the double yarn count

Nz = N1+N2

Finding the tri-ply yarn number

Nz = N1+N2+N3

Finding the four-ply yarn count

Nz = N1+N2+N3+N4

If N1=30Nd, N2=40Nd then Nz=Nd?

If N1=24Ntex, N2=12Ntex then Nz=Ntex?

N1=32Nd, N2=42Nd, N3=12Nd Nz=Nd ?
