Static charges are generated on the fibres as they pass through the ceramic eyelets and the combs. The static charges generated on the individual fibres cause the fibres to either attract or repel. This fibre movement causes problems when the fibres pass through the eyelets and combs resulting in fibre breaks. It will also cause a poor presentation of the fibres onto the warping beam. These problems result in costly machine down time and product waste.
Model 915 shockless antistatic bars are installed just prior to the problem areas. The ionised air flow eliminates the fibre movement, resulting in increased production output , quality and a reduction in waste.
