STUFFER BOX CRIMPING

Stuffer box crimping, also called stuffer box texturization, the texturing technique where the yarn is fold and bend while heated.

STUFFER BOX CRIMPING / STUFFER BOX TEXTURIZATION

With stuffer box crimping or stuffer box texturization, yarn is not textured with a twist like with friction texturization. With stuffer box crimping, yarn coming from the supply package  is pressed in zig zag form into a heated box (the stuffer box) which is on a specially constructed machine. On the upper end of the stuffer box is a moveable load, which is responsible for pressuring the yarn into shape (depending on the required crimp of the yarn, the load can be adjusted).
