WeftMaster® KW

Knot detector

The knot detector detects all knots in running yarn, before they get into the fabric. This enables higher machine efficiency and less fabric wastage. If a defined number of knots is reached, the necessary action can be quickly taken in order to remove the faulty and ensure a smooth production.

WeftMaster® KW
  • High machine efficiency

    Fast reaction for high machine efficiency. Application example: Sailcloth

  • All kinds of yarn

    Processes all kinds of yarns up to a diameter of 3mm. Application example: Car seats

  • Easy operation

    Easy operation and easy change of settings. Application example: Feeding bags

Detects knots in running yarns

The range of possibilities is extensive, such as using a counter to keep track of detected knots.

In case a predefined maximum number of knots is reached, the system can stop the prewinder and remove the defective yarn, ensuring optimal production quality.
