Flexible Flats

Flat clothing helps retain fibers so that carding through cylinder wire works optimally
  1. Prevents damage
  2. Improves parallelization of the fibers
  3. Significantly decreased imperfections
  4. Extended lifetime of up to 20%

Product Details

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% .  

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 

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.  

Highlights 

  • 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  

InLine-X-Top

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 

EasyTop

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. 

Highlights 

  • 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.
