The SPLICE-AIRE® yarn joiner eliminates the need to knot yarn ends by entangling their fibers. The entangling of the fibers is achieved by using a short burst of compressed air to make a permanent joint between the yarn ends.
Knotless yarns eliminate:
- Fabrics defects
- Picking with removal of yarn from cones
- Processing problems thru guides, discs, and eyelets.
The equipment is particularly effective with filament yarns. SPLICE-AIRE ® actually produces a stronger bond than the parent yarns, in many cases. SPLICE-AIRE ® is also effective on undrawn and POY filament yarns. Model PJ-350-1 can be used on yarns with a denier up to approximately 4,000.
