The Piezo-Electric Weft Stop Motion
Detects Every Weft Break on
Rapier Weaving Machines
The movement of the weft yarn is sensed up to the fabric selvedge with piezo-electric signal transmitters. The reliable monitoring of the weft insertion is performed over the complete width of the fabric and even for different weft yarns. The weft yarn moves over the sensing device without additional tension and with only little deviation.
Detects every Weft Break on
Air-Jet Weaving Machines
Detects every Weft Break on Air-Jet Weaving Machines. Reliable monitoring of all types of weft breakes by sensors which are mounted on the slay.
Automatic light readjustment when sensors are dirty.
Detects every Weft Break on Projectile Weaving Machines
Sulzer Textil has relied on Loepfe for weft monitoring for more than thirty years. The weft stop motions today are standard equipment of projectile weaving machines.
The movement of the weft thread is sensed with piezo-electric signal transducers. The safe monitoring of the weft insertion is performed over the complete width of the fabric and even for different weft yarns.
