Airbond’s splicers are respected world-wide for their simplicity and reliability. In some circumstances, however, pneumatic splicing just won’t work. Examples include: Monofilaments, braided yarn, very heavily-sized or coated yarn, and very high-twist yarn.
Our customers needed an air-driven splicer which made joints in these problem materials. The Model 161 was Airbond’s first model to deliver 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.
Braided yarns, because of their construction, have always defeated conventional splicers. Some of the braided constructions are very heavy, frequently exceeding 20000 tex. Customer response to Airbond’s Model 161 soon identified the pressing need to join these extremely heavy yarns.
The Model 163 is Airbond’s answer to the heavy braided yarn problem. With a larger entry port, and an up-rated turbine, it can handle these problem yarns with ease.
