PLC programmed to allow instantaneous
directional control, reduction in overall twist
and reduce torque test averages.
When the Solution Analyzer
is arranged to cooperate with
a chemical application pad it
will display the percent solids
in the chemical bath being
applied to a moving web.
Patented "STAR" System
FAB-CON's Patented Skew-Torque-Average-Reduction
(STAR System) opens the wet rope and rotates the tubular fabric to adjust the WALE angle to the natural, relaxed position prior to extraction. The extracting nip rolls set the fabric so the WALE angle remains in position all the way through cutting. The system is offered in manual, semi-automatic with motorized adjustment through the touchscreen and fully automated monitoring and control of the WALE angle using a high-speed camera basedsystem with touchscreen control and display
Supports the wet fabric trucks and turns in
response to the twist sensor. Motor-driven,
this unit is a complete assembly and can be
simply dropped into a square pit and easily
moved later if relocation is necessary.

Placed in front of the elevated
Cloth Lifter/De-Twister, this machine
squeezes excess water from the
fabric rope to reduce its weight,
providing reduced tension delivery
into the pad’s entry system.
The motorized lifting roll takes the wet fabric from the fabric truck or accumulating scray of a rope squeezer and presents it in a tensionless manner to the entry of pad, Hydro-Sizer or slitter/opener. The de-twister consists of a motorized de-twisting-ring controlled by a twist sensor to determine the direction of twist in the rope and remove it rapidly. The unit is coupled to the turntable allowing a PLC based program to operate the de-twister and turntable in unison for continual twist removal at high production speeds.
