Airbond’s splicers are respected world-wide for their simplicity and reliability. In some circumstances, however, pneumatic splicing just won’t work.
- Braided yarn
- Very heavily-sized or coated yarn
- Very high-twist yarn
Our customers needed an air-driven splicer which made joints in these problem materials. The Model 161 delivers the answer. When the Model 161 is used, two yarn ends are overlapped, and a fine auxiliary yarn is tightly wrapped around them and bound to produce a joint of high strength. The Model 161 jointing method (patent pending) does not need electric motors or chargers; it just uses the same air supply as that used by the rest of the Airbond range. Simply plug it into the same air supply as usual, and make the wrapped joint.
As our customers have come to expect, the Airbond Model 161 is rugged, reliable and simple to maintain.
