Bekaert Introduces SiroLock® Wire
Bekaert Carding Solutions NV, Belgium, reports its SiroLock® doffer and worker wire offers improved
fiber control and web quality, and increased productivity on nonwoven and long-staple roller cards.
SiroLock is used on the breast section of the card's main cylinder, where it can take up to 50-percent more fibers than traditional card wire, reducing recycling of fibers as well as the need for cleaning stops. Other benefits include reduced fly, improved blending and the ability to have wider settings between cylinders and workers/doffers than with traditional wire. The wire also can be used to process a wide range of fibers and fiber densities.
