Revolving Cylinder (WT100)
The WT100 is the smallest multi feed rotating cylinder machine in the
range. It can carry knitting heads up to 6.5" (165mm) diameter. It is
possible to fit knitting heads below 3" (76mm) with multiple feeds, but
due to the limitation of rotational speed (maximum of 350rpm) owing to the
takedown, it is more cost effective to use one of the TM Wire series of
machines for narrow tape production.
|The wire pay off system can be
floor / pallet located bobbins with
heavy duty snatch detectors mounted on
a stand positioned near the machine, or a similar system for smaller
bobbin sizes up to DIN 160 mounted on the top of the machine. This system
is best suited for wire sizes above 0.006" (0.15mm) to 0.016" (0.4mm)
diameter. It provides the best protection against faults in the knitted
mesh caused by the wire snagging, by providing a reserve of wire whilst
the machine is halted.|
