Easy exchange of modules


To improve the accessibility and exchangeability of all parts of the card, Rieter designed its card on modular principles. The only fixed parts are the feed chute and the main cylinder; all other modules can be removed. As a result,

  • cleaning;
  • setting;
  • wire mounting;
  • exchanging (licker-in, flats);

can be performed easily by taking the modules out of the machine, e.g.:

These systems not only facilitate maintenance, they also improve quality, as shown by Rieter’s  IGS device.
