Bräcker’s new traveller with 50% longer lifetime at ShanghaiTex
Bräcker will present a new traveller with up to 50 per cent longer lifetime and shorter running-in period. This is only one highlight out of the impressing product variety. A novelty Bräcker shows at ShanghaiTex is the new CARBO traveller for ring spinning machines. It is specially designed for man-made fibre spinners. CARBO is a new coating technology, which improves the sliding properties. This results in up to 50 per cent longer lifetime and a shorter running-in period. Recommended applications next to man-made fibres are also their blends, core yarns and all yarn counts.
In addition, Bräcker exhibits its well-known portfolio of high-quality products which meets the continually rising demands on the textile market like higher speeds and productivity. The rings and travellers offer long service lives, lowest yarn breaks and no thermal damages when processing man-made fibres.
