Working in perfect combination with the wire under even the highest forces, Graf flexible flat clothing prevents damage and improves parallelization of the fibers. It significantly decreases IPI values on yarn count, and the application-related card wire diameter allows an extended lifetime of up to 20% .
- Prevents damage
- Improves parallelization of the fibers
- Significantly decreased imperfections
- Extended lifetime of up to 20%
High precision in flexible flat clothing
Flat clothing is used to retain the fibers so that carding through the cylinder wire works optimally. To avoid fiber damage, it is important that the flat clothing, working in perfect combination with the wire, reacts flexibly while still withstanding the high forces in place.
Everything from the foundation material to the carding wires and the finished product is manufactured at Graf. This allows Graf to deliver the highest quality and Swiss-engineered precision across the entire manufacturing process, ensuring a smooth operation of consistent yarn quality throughout the entire card clothing lifetime.
The flexible flat clothing of Graf is part of a range that offers clothing for all common flat clothing with proven and known quality from one source. The wide product range includes flat clothing for any carding application – from low to high-throughput productions.
resist-O-top is progressively set without any straight gaps, favoring the removal of short fibers, the separation of trash and the elimination of neps.
The progressive set pattern ensures better removal of short fibers and highly contaminated cotton with seed coat fragments
Optimally distributed carding forces and perfectly positioned teeth improve parallelization of the fibers
The application-related card wire diameter delivers an extended lifetime up to 20%
Areas of application
The resist-O-top series is perfect for high production rates
It is generally used throughout the short-staple fiber range of cotton, man-made fibers, blends and recycled fibers
The straight gaps and a diagonal setting pattern are ideal for dealing with highly contaminated fibers, without compromising on lifetime and process stability.
Areas of Application
The InLine-X-Top series includes flexible flat clothing, which is used with higher levels of contaminated cotton with seed coat fragments, cotton blends, man-made fibers and viscose
These flats are used in medium to high production throughputs
To ensure consistently high quality in the carding process, regular replacement of the flat clothing is necessary. EasyTop allows fast replacement, reducing downtimes of the cards and in the carding process.
30% reduced downtimes during reclothing
Cost-efficient reclothing of aluminum flat bars
No additional service tools nor service workshops required
Fast and precise reclothing through magnetic adhesion technology ensures consistently high quality
Areas of Application
EasyTop flexible flats are especially suited for cotton, man-made and regenerated fibers.
