AUTOMATED YARN CREELING SYSTEM
MODRA TECHNOLOGY, innovators in soft flooring solutions, has launched the evolutionary automated yarn creeling system, CreelMT™ for tufted carpet manufacturers.
AN AUTOMATED SYSTEM THAT WINDS YARN TO LENGTH AND USES ROBOTICS TO LOAD THE FULL PACKAGE OF YARN INTO A MOBILE CREEL.
OUR CreelMT™ SYSTEM COMBINES:
CreelMT is unique and in some respects it’s not revolutionary but evolutionary. We’ve drawn together a number of existing technologies – mobile creels, precision winding of yarn, integration with CAD systems and robotics – into one complete system and created an automated, robotic yarn package handling system as a smart alternative to the traditional fixed creel.
