Estimating Yield and Length of Yarn and Thread Packages

Industrial yarns and threads are made of various fiber types and sizes which aresupplied on a wide range of package sizes with different lengths and yields.  Most products are ordered by the pound, which may leave you wondering, “How long is it?” It’s important to understand the length and yield of your products to help improve your processing efficiency and waste reduction.

Standard Tenacity Yarn vs. High Modulus Aramid Yarn – Which Do You Need?

Tenacity and modulus are important characteristics to understand as they relate to industrial thread and yarn – particularly for applications in the wire and cable industry. They differ from one another in that tenacity is the ratio of tensile strength to yarn size. Tenacity is calculated using the ultimate breaking force of the yarn (when a thread or yarn is stretched to its breaking point) and the linear density and can be used to compare dissimilar material or different sizes of material.
