Abstract

This study aims to define the factors and interaction of factors which affect the average value and variability of the linear density of fancy yarns. A robust, fractional factorial design was used and was repeated five times. It was found that the core component, the effect component and the supply and delivery speeds affected 96.5 % of the linear density value. Further, the binder, the core, the supply and delivery speeds, and the false twist affected 95% of the linear density variability. The value of this study originates from quantifying the effect of high number of factors and interactions precisely.
