Star G2 for perfect speed regulation
IRO AB of Sweden has presented the Star G2, which incorporates many of the latest feeder developments into one neat package.
Making use of a new and improved mechanical sensor system, and using its permanent magnet motor technology, Star G2 ensures perfect speed regulation with dramatically reduced power consumption. The user-friendly design ensures easy handling and operation. Star G2 is perfectly suited for weaving finer yarns at lower speeds on both new installations and as a retrofit for older weaving machines.
Star G2 has many salient features. The S/Z Switch is used to set the direction of rotation. CAT (Coaxial Output Tensioner) is a compensating tensioner for mid/low speeds ensuring high wear resistance and self-cleaning tension surfaces. A powerful maintenance-free ´permanent magnet motor´ ensures low energy consumption, low operating temperature and high torque at all speeds.
Star G2 has also a new improved sensor system, ensuring optimal tension control and includes an integrated yarn break sensor. It also includes an adjustable knob for easy and precise brushing adjustment -- even when the feeder is running. Stepless yarn separation adjustment can be done without the need for any tools. Its soft spool body seal prevents dust and lint penetration of the ball bearings.
A uniquely designed, high quality, surface treated spool body gently handles a comprehensive range of yarns, providing the optimal yarn ´take-off´ tension, and ensuring the minimum amount of dust. The maximum speed of the feeder is 1,200 m/min and the weight of Star G2 is 4.7 kg.
