26th March 2014 1 comment
BTSR will be heavily promoting innovative and potentially game changing yarn storage and feeding solution at leading trade fairs this year. The Italian company’s recently introduced disruptive Unifeeder technology aims to displace current state-of-art of yarn storage feeding technology and is said to be destined to dramatically impact on the socks, hosiery and knitted textiles manufacturing sectors. Unifeeder is a new multi-patented concept featuring a brand new Yarn Antitwist System which is said to guarantee total combined yarn feeding and storage control. BTSR says this represents the first ‘positive storage’ feeder concept which has been introduced to the market.
