Low Twist Solution

Low Twist Solution

Low Twist

The Low Twist unit is essentially an unrolling device, using an optical system to achieve that the rotation of the package is synchronized with the insertion speed of the loom.

This concept is specifically designed to improve weaving metallized polyester film e.g. Lurex, since it can reduce twist from ribbon yarn when drawn from the package.

The Low Twist unit must be installed behind a weft feeder, and the new model Low Twist X3 can be connected to the same Voltage Supply Box of the X2 / X3 generation of rapier feeders.
