What is "Spinnerette" - Definition & Explanation

The machine that creates man-made fibers out of liquid by forcing it through tiny holes.
The device (similar to a showerhead) which forms strands of filament as molten polymer is pumped through. It is at this stage that the fiber cross section, fiber size and the number of filaments in a yarn bundle (for continuous filament) are determined.
