The „cropped ring“ (standard ring)


In the case of the cropped ring the arc was flattened on top compared with the rings that were customary until then. This resulted in a large space for yarn passage, so that the arc of the  ring traveler could also be flattened off (oval traveler/flat traveler) and the center of gravity lowered. Its advantage over the anti-wedge ring is that the space for yarn passage is rather larger and all customary ring travelers with the exception of the elliptical traveler can be mounted on it. This is the most widely used ring shape nowadays and is supplied by all well-known companies, such as Bräcker, Reiners & Fürst, etc.
