cat

CAT

CAT Coaxial output tensioner

A compensating tensioner for mid/low speeds, that is suitable for most yarns, but particularly suited to give excellent results withendless filament yarns.
Has a high wear resistance and is a selfcleaning unit.
With a ceramic version for extreme wear conditions.

  • compensating tensioner for mid/low speeds
  • high-wear resistance
  • self cleaning
  • ceramic version for extreme wear conditions
  • suitable for most yarns

eflex

E-flex

E-flex Compensating tensioner and balloon control

The most popular combination of tensioner and balloon control on the market today.
The E-Flex has proven to be a very flexible solution for spun yarns and is appreciated by customers worldwide.
This patent protected item continues to be a corner stone for solving tension difficulties on an array of different yarns.

  • high-wear resistance
  • low dust creation/accumulation
  • self-cleaning tension surfaces

lamella

Lamella

Lamella Tensioner and balloon brake

A combination of tensioner and balloon brake widely used for hightwisted yarns and delicate thin yarn applications.
The yarn is handled gently, but at same time the Lamella Brake ensures the required tension level.

  • high-wear resistance
  • self cleaning tension surfaces
  • especially suited to high twist and silk yarns




m-flex

M-flex

M-flex Compensating tensioner and balloon control

A highly proficient brake that utilizes magnetic springs to create the required tension.The braking cone is made from a special material that has a very high resistance to wear but with high flexibility.
Performance, flexibility, extensive application range and longevity are the challenges this product overcomes. Particularly suitable for very low and constant tension level, can replace natural soft brushes, with the great advantage of being self-cleaning.

  • excellent performance for both high and low tension applications
  • high resistance to wear
  • compact modular design
  • compatible with the optional pneumatic threading system
  • suitable for most yarn types

s-flex

S-flex

S-flex Compensating tensioner – balloon control

Expanding on the design of the M-Flex, the S-Flex has been developed with a design focused on the combination of “balloon control” and “braking” functionality that covers a range of typical yarns and applications. An optimized braking cone ensures a solution with excellent performance and further improved resistance to wear.
Performance, versatility and longevity are the driving factors behind the development of this new family of brakes, where one brake is able to cover an extensive range of applications.

  • for low and constant tension, these brakes can replace natural soft brushes, with the great advantage of being self-cleaning
  • designed to achieve the criteria of a “one brake, one application” solution.
  • high resistance to wear
  • compact modular design
  • compatible with the optional pneumatic threading system

tec

TEC

TEC Weaving machine controlled (CAN) active tensioner

The TEC is a proven and reliable programmable tensioner suitable for all modern rapier weaving machines equipped with CAN, fully controlled and set via the weaving machine panel. The TEC can also be equipped with optional automatic cleaning.

  • extremely fast and precise operation
  • compact modular design
  • integrated pneumatic cleaning
  • suitable for most yarn types
  • excellent yarn tension regulation, reaction time 2,5 ms for maximum effect
  • the tension leaf used has a long braking surface
  • good knot passage, tilts the leaf (1,4 g) to reduce yarn tension peaks
  • easy handling
  • low dust accumulation
  • compact and integrated into the weft feeder
  • good wear resistance
