MPF P - Positive feeder


This device comes with the tried-and-tested, self-cleaning vibrating yarn tensioner, which reliably prevents machine stoppages. Fast threading saves time. The colour-change LED stop light is an integral part of the feeder body and is clearly visible from any operator position. The enclosed feeder body prevents contamination, contactless stop motion system for yarn breakage

The components

  • Knot catcher

    This can be changed without tools. Optional - Adjustable knot catcher.

  • Winding wheel

    The feeder is available with a fully enclosed feed wheel as standard or with pin type or separation feed wheel as optionals. Rapid changeover.

  • Stop warning light

    The large, stop warning light is an integral part of the feeder body and is clearly visible from all operator positions.

  • Integral anti-filamentation unit

    When processing filament yarns capillary filaments can collect on the feed wheel and interfere with smooth yarn feed. The user can prevent this by selecting flat pulling for fibre yarns and pulling at a steep angle for filament yarns.

  • Vibration Tension

    The vibration causes the tensioner ring to rotate against the direction of rotation in comparison with other makers. This prevents the build up of dirt between the tension rings which are self-cleaning. No tensioner ring wear. No more fault stoppages means that knitting machine productivity increases.
