frame for acrylic fiber processing. According to the company, the new frame features easy operation
and settings using the new Finlane Dialoguer touch screen machine interface, a simple mechanical
structure that leads to low and easy maintenance, a high working speed, excellent technological
head characteristics for exact sliver control, optimal quality/price ratio and fast return on
investment, and high electrical and mechanical reliability.

Finlane also has initiated a new machine upgrade program to encourage the use of a
performance-improving retrofit kit that can be used with existing machines. Visitors to may visit the Machine Upgrade Program section
