Textile Technology Center


1. About Textile Technology Center

The Ministry of Development of the Republic of Italy, the Ministry of Food, Agriculture and Light Industry of Mongolia, and the Mongolian Wool and Cashmere Association jointly established the Textile Technology Center with a 100 percent grant from Italy.

As the world’s weather is getting warmer year by year, consumers are choosing light and comfortable products, not just the products with beautiful colors and designs. However, the spinning mills operating in Mongolia mainly produce 26-number thick yarn. There is a need for further production of fine spun yarns, and it is essential to carry out experiments and research in this field and to empower engineers.

We are aiming to solve all these problems in the production and technology sector by establishing a Textile Technology Center with a test base under the association.

The main goals of Textile Technology Center:

Researching the techniques and technologies of fine spinning and knitting production, and selecting the optimal version of the equipment to be used in the further processing of wool and cashmere based on experimental research.
Experiments and research to develop fine spinning industry
Retraining engineers and technicians working on fine spinning production, training and capacity building on textile technology center equipment
Making knitted products with fine spinning yarn, conducting experimental research
Product development, training and training of precision spinning and knitting industry engineers

In order to produce the “spinning” that meets the requirements of the best fashion and high-performance textiles and knitwear to compete in the world market, semi-fine system equipment and test equipment of the Italian companies MESDAN LAB, BUSI, GUALCHIERI, FADIS/ have been installed.

The above equipments will be used for fine yarn processing and quality improvement experiments, and each device will perform the following operations. It includes:

Carding Machine

The waste is cleaned from the raw materials, the combing is smoothed, and the fibers are arranged in a certain standard to produce a belt.

Stiro roving machine

Narrow strips (rolls) that meet the requirements of the narrow spinning industry are produced by repeatedly stretching the raw materials.


Narrow strips (rolls) that meet the requirements of the narrow spinning industry are produced by repeatedly stretching the raw materials.

Winding machine

The twisted single wire is wrapped around the cartridge and ready for the next step.

Assembling machine

The single wire is prepared in 2 layers to be transferred to the tensioning machine.

Twister lab

Twist and connect the doubled wires together.

1. Outcome:

  • By 2025, will produce the final finished products with 60 percent of the total annual cashmere raw materials
  • Up to 30 percent of the total produced finished products will be branded with the Mongolian Noble Fibre certification mark
  • It will be possible to carry out research and development on the worsted yarn production
  • A basic structure will be created for further development by testing the worsted yarn in the weaving industry and producing the finished products
  • All factories in the industry will be fully equipped with qualified engineers and designers
  • Italian high technology will be imported to Mongolia

2. About the equipment investment 

We are working on the goal of adding value to 60 percent of the total prepared cashmere raw materials and producing finished products and as of 2022, we have purchased equipment worth 14.2 million USD.  In the future, it is necessary to obtain favorable investment conditions for equipment worth 305 million USD from Italy through the line between the governments.
