Fully automated roving frame F 38 and semi-automated roving frame F 18

Quality roving, produced economically
  1. Low operating costs
  2. High productivity
  3. High flexibility

Product Details

The new roving frames have up to 224 spindles. With the compact drive unit, the machine requires less space. Short doffing times guarantee a high production rate. A new feature with the F 38 is the option to install the bobbin converter at the head or the foot of the machine and to augment this with a tube cleaner. This enables the roving frame to be easily integrated into a package transport system. Sensors monitor the roving tension and ensure a correct bobbin build-up. The roving frame thus produces roving of consistently high quality.


The new roving frames have up to 224 spindles. The compact drive unit requires less space. That saves room costs as well as operating costs. With the speedy doffer, the machine achieves very good efficiency. This results in high productivity of the roving frame. 

The machine has a modern drive concept with efficient motors. By monitoring every single roving, suction becomes unnecessary. That saves energy.


ROJ sensors monitor the running performance of the roving. Analysis of the recorded data is shown on the machine display. The roving tension control ensures roving evenness and a precise bobbin build-up. The roving subsequently runs faultlessly on the ring spinning machine. 

The roving frame F 18 has a swiveling bobbin bank. The bobbins are easily accessible for personnel and can be removed gently. This maintains the high quality of the roving. 


The bobbin convertor can be installed at either end of the machine. This allows the roving frame to be flexibly integrated in a package transport system (F 38). By means of the electronic drafting unit, the roving fineness can be quickly and easily adjusted on the display. That guarantees a quick reaction to market requirements. 

A new tube cleaner integrated into the convertor optionally replaces a central cleaning station. That increases the flexibility of the entire transport system (F 38).
