Cardrite™ - A Revolution in Card Clothing
Cardrite™ is a revolutionary new type of mettalic card clothing which has evolved from proven carding principles tried and tested over many years.
It employs variable pitch on a single wire, incorporating a flat top already commonly used in the worsted industry.
Furthermore, existing tooth geometry has been developed from metallic card clothing used in the processing of synthetic fibres.
The result - a mettalic wire that acts comparable to flexible, but retains all the benefits of mettalic.
Excellent Fibre Control - Significantly Enhanced Processing
Carefully calculated tooth profiles create a depth of carding which promotes an increase in fibre loading.
Greatly improved cross-card variation.
Significant reduction in cleaning times.
Reduced fibre breakage.
Excellent control as fibres run straight through the card without any lateral displacement.
Lubricants are carried by the fibre right through to the card, aiding the spinning process.
Impurities separated out, producing a clearer web.
Extremely durable as Cardrite™ wire is not subjected to conventional mettalic damage.
No burning on the cylinder.
Numerous Cost Saving Advantages
Cardrite™ clothed cards require significantly less fettling and in many cases the process is eliminated completely.
As Cardrite™ is mettalic, there is a lower unit cost when compared to flexible, there is no longer a requirement for stockholding of wire for specific cards.
Its robust construction makes it more resistant to damage compared to conventional mettalics and, should it occur, repair becomes the option rather than replacement.
