25 The CSIRO/Savio Twinsplicer. The yarns to be spliced are positioned between annular rubber twisting surfaces that are mounted on metal discs geared to contrrotate (a). The discs are first rotated to reverse the twists in the lengths of yarn between the discs, and the middle sections of yarn are brought together (b). The tails are drafted away (c) following a twist-cancellation step along the tail sections. The resulting tapered ends are lined up with the opposing yarns (d) and the discs rotated in the opposite sense to produce the twofolded central section and adjoining sections of the splice (e).
