Dedicated prewinders for tape weft

A proven configuration for weaving tapes

LGL Tecnico prewinders equipped with Attivo output brakes are ideal for weaving tapes on wide machines. The braking force is programmable and the brake itself is predominantly self-cleaning.  

LGL Technico prewinders feature a powerful motor and a bigger spreading of the windings on the large drum. These are ideal for tapes that release some material on all friction surfaces during their passage through the prewinder and brakes. The TWM brake-cone that rests on the top of the drum is less sensitive to this release as it is predominantly self-cleaning. Aided by Attivo programmable brakes, the insertion can benefit from a very low residual tension.
