MPF L - Positive feeder


The MPF L impresses with its self-cleaning tension rings on the yarn infeed tensioner and closed, wear-free yarn feed wheel. Other features include the integrated anti-filamentation unit and accessible yarn outlet tension to approx. 1 cN.

Main features

  • Ease of operation, maintenance-friendly, wear-free and long service life
  • Self-cleaning vibrating yarn tensioner prevents machine stoppages and boosts productivity
  • Even tension force due to magnetic tension rings

MPF L: The components


1. Vibrating yarn tensioner

The tension rings vibrates against the yarn direction of feed. This prevents the build up of dirt between the tension rings and ensures they are self-cleaning.

2. Closed winding reel

The closed, low-wear winding reel prevents filament build up when processing filament yarns.

3. Built-in anti-filamentation unit

When processing filament yarns capillary filaments can collect on the winding reel and interfere with smooth yarn feed. The user can prevent this by selecting the high take off position for fibre yarns and the low take off position for filament yarns.

4. Infeed arm (optional)

This eliminates the obstruction as with the normal infeed bracket and so makes it quicker to change the drive belt on the MPF.
