Batson Announces Twistechnology Sales In US
Batson Group Inc., Greenville, has
sold six twisting machines from Spain-based Twistechnology to three US companies, including four
machines to Coats North America, Hendersonville, N.C.; one to Gates Corp.’s Automotive Technical
Center, Rochester Hills, Mich.; and one to Cortland Cable, Cortland, N.Y.
Twistec technology involves the use of individual spindle drives to provide operating flexibility. Changes in twist direction, twist multiples, and spindle and feed roll speeds at each spindle are made via the machine’s liquid crystal display without requiring mechanical changes.
