Switzerland-based Loepfe Brothers Ltd. has introduced a new weaving technology named WeftMaster® SFB. The newest addition to the WeftMaster family is designed for projectile and rapier looms and controls the tension of all yarn types. Its weft thread brake has been upgraded with new electronics and can control up to four brakes. All brakes were designed for reduced yarn abrasion and higher wear resistance.
“Today, it’s all about productivity and maximizing return on investment,” said Loepfe’s Head of Products & Solutions Guido Wieland. “The WeftMaster SFB helps our customers in the technical textile business to increase production while, effectively, prolonging the life of their original equipment.”
