Parallel lapper model AFP50 (patented)

The AFP50 model is a CORMATEX exclusive patent. The parallel fiber lapper compacts the webs into a homogenous layer of longitudinally-oriented fibers. This system guarantees a more uniform web, evener fiber counts across the whole machine width, a 15-20% efficiency increase and a remarkably higher yarn quality (extra-fine knitwear yarns, up to nm 60)

Web transfer belt conveyor
Web transporting system installed between the third and the fourth cylinder of the carding set; it makes the inspection of the web quality possible by the operator, as well as simplifying the cleaning of the two carding units with no need to displace them, thus saving working time by leaving the roller set-up unchanged and making unnecessary workers and strippers re-gauging by the machine operator

1. Sides protection by sliding doors provided with wide windows and safety devices in compliance with the european regulations
2. Automated centralized lubrication system for tape condenser
3. Centralised vacuum system for the card clothing automating cleaning, also featuring cross travelling cleaning mouths assembled on each main cylinder and doffer
