FLEXIBLE CARD CLOTHING
UB-Tec is manufacturing flexible card clothing for woolen and worsted carding machines. Our quality products can be used to process fine fibers like cashmere, silk and merino but also more coarse types of fibers which are used for carpet yarns.
We offer over 2,000 different types of flexible card clothing. We use different types of foundation which each have different characteristics which makes them suitable for certain counts and fibers. Furthermore, we offer different wire materials based on the working conditions in which the fillets are installed. Also, we offer different finishes like surface grinding, side grinding, polishing and flame-treatment on customer’s request. The width of the fillet is determined by the roller diameter of the cylinder, doffer, stripper, worker, or fancy.
Our experience and know-how reassure our customers that we supply the right type for their application. Because each roll of card clothing is checked in our factory by hand, we can assure the highest reliability and longevity. Our wire has been installed on machines such as Octir, Ramella, Kyowa, Tatham, Bonino and HDB.
In case you have any questions about our products, please do not hesitate to contact us.
