German term or phrase: Verdichtungsspinnen
Is this "compact spinning":
Daneben gibt es noch das Compactspinnen (Verdichtungsspinnen). Dabei werden die Fasern vor dem Drehen mit Luftdruck gebündelt. So entstehen Garne von höchster Qualität.

Explanation:
Certainly Altavista had 170 hits for your translation, so the term definitely exists ;-) Below is an example of a website where it's used.

Thanks a lot for confirming, Heather. I wasn't sure about why they used two terms, Verdichtungsspinnen and Compactspinnen in German, but I assume that they are both one and the same thing (I guess Verdichtungsspinnen is just an explanation for those Germans who don't understand the English term).
