Introducing

AUTOMATED YARN CREELING SYSTEM

MODRA TECHNOLOGY, innovators in soft flooring solutions, has launched the evolutionary automated yarn creeling system, CreelMT™ for tufted carpet manufacturers.

CreelMT™ IS 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.

Benefits

MAKE SHORTER PRODUCT RUNS MORE ECONOMICALLY

CreelMT™ FEATURES:

  • Suitable for many types of tufting machines

  • Gilbos precision winders accurately measure yarn length and reduce waste

  • CreelMT™ system configured to meet your needs

  • Automation and robotics to reduce manual handling and improve safety 

  • Compact – takes 50% of fixed creel floor-space
