Pneumatic splicing is a complex process, its efficiency being dependent on many variables. The research reported in this paper relates to the relationship between splicing performance and yarn count. The tests were performed using an industry-standard synthetic yarn, which was used as a baseline in previous research on the splicing process. This paper reports on the change in performance of industry-standard and experimental splicers with various configurations as yarn count was varied. The report offers an explanation for the change of splicing performance with yarn count.
