The machine can also offer multifilament bicomponent fiber spinning with metering/distribution plates to produce the following internal fiber cross sections--sheath/core, side-by-side, tipped trilobal, 16 segmented pie, 36 islands in the sea and blocking plate assemblies for reducing spin holes.
Monofilament wires produce less debris compared to the multifilament cable constructs, but kinking of the wires decreases their strength and makes them vulnerable to wire breakage, trochanteric nonunion, or migration [2].
Additionally, LCP monofilament does not interfere with the jacketing reflow process as it is heat resistant and has different characteristics when compared to a multifilament. Multifilament fibers tend to flatten or spread during braiding, which interferes with the reflow process.
The team at Suzumori Endo Robotics Laboratory has been covering an artificial human skeleton with multifilament artificial muscles to simulate movement.
Conventional filter cloths are made of a fabric of multifilament yarn, which consists of several filaments twisted together to form a continuous plastic wire.

Through this process, monofilament, multifilament and fine denier fibers are manufactured to customers' precise specifications from a range of biocompatible, non-resorbable or bioresorbable polymers with tailored physical properties.
This multilayer structure, says the company, makes them significantly cheaper than the currently used multifilament tapes which require a silver matrix.
Abstract: The invention concerns a yam comprising a core (A) obtained by coextrusion of a glass multifilament E, R, C or S, or more generally of glass silk or basalt, and a polymer sheath of the thermoplastic, thermoset, natural elastomer fluorinated or non-fluorinated synthetic elastomer type.
It turns out to be woven multifilament, a sanctuary for bacteria.
