IRO Debuts IRO-TEC For Projectile Rapier Looms

IRO Debuts IRO-TECFor Projectile, Rapier LoomsSweden-based IRO AB recently introduced the IRO-TEC controlled-insertion tensioner for projectile and rapier weaving looms. The TEC can be incorporated into the companys X2 feeder or mounted directly onto the weaving machine. It also can be used in combination with standard balloon control brushes or IROs Flex-Brake tensioners.Two versions of the tensioner, both with reaction times of 2.5 milliseconds, provide braking forces of up to 100 or 200 centinewtons, enabling installations to achieve up to 1,200 insertions per minute.The TEC can handle filament yarn ranging from 40 decitex (dtex) to 2,500 dtex, and spun yarn ranging from 120 Nm to 4 Nm. Automated braking force, timing and duration ensure a high level of yarn tension control, while a programmable, pneumatic cleaning facility ensures reliable drift, according to the company.
