Our travellers are identified by a number that indicates the weight of the travellers in mg. and by a letter or word indicating its form.
These are the different kinds of travellers:
C: a balanced form with rounded angles enhancing the yarn passage and the circulation of the travellers in the ring.
Antiwedge: a form specially designed for carding yarn, worsted yarns and their mixtures with polyamides.
Round: a variant of type C.
L: recommended for voluminous yarns, yarns used in carpets, blankets, ropes, fantasy, etc…
Fantasy: a variant of type L, where the yarn passes independently. From this form, the yarn does not get dirty and fibres are prevented from sticking inside the travellers, thus reducing breakages.
J: designed for 17.1 mm conic rings. (43/64”) and 17.4 mm. (11/16”)
KM: recommended for voluminous yarns.
Polymer: same characteristics as type C.
Our travellers are manufactured in various hardnesses:
N-12: suitable for delicate yarns (continuous filaments, fine fibre yarns, rayon, etc…)
N30: suitable for abrasive yarns (carding threads, wool, worsted, blankets, carpets, packets, glass fibre, jute, hemp, linen, rope, crochet, etc…)
Supernylon: suitable for super-abrasive yarns.
In special cases, yarns can be manufactured off catalogue with hardnesses from N-0 (loose) to N-50 (very hard).
