Card clothing servicing saves money and enhances quality

Significant cost savings, as well as consistent, homogeneous and reproducible product quality, can all be achieved through timely card clothing servicing. Graf's range of flexible servicing options with global support ensures customers can keep their production performing at the highest level for longer. Meeting the recommended service intervals for components also increases the card clothing lifetime. 

Ultimate flexibilty

Graf offers a high standard of Swiss-engineered service machines. This enables customers to decide whether they want to carry out the service themselves or have the service carried out by Graf experts, while they concentrate on their core business. Four solution packages cover a wide range of applications, with the aim of extending card component lifetime and therefore reducing machine downtimes to a minimum.
