Card Clothings for Carding

Product range

Cards and their components are also considered the heart of the spinning mill and are of crucial importance for the quality of the yarn. Graf offers a complete range of high-quality products for carding. The portfolio covers the clothings for a large variety of all card models for the required applications. Furthermore, Graf offers technical support for the specification and maintenance of the clothings while considering the applications for the best possible result regarding the quality, lifetime of the clothing, and production rate.

Metallic Card Clothings for Licker-ins, Cylinders and Doffer Rollers

Graf metallic card clothings feature low tolerances and a high-quality surface finish as well as tooth geometries optimized for the particular application. Permanent quality control in productions ensures reproducible and consistently high quality. This guarantees products that are manufactured according to the highest standards and precisely match their applications. 

EasyTop

Fast, cost-efficient reclothing for aluminum flat bars with magnetic adhesion technology. To assure a consistently high quality in the carding process, the regular replacement of the flat clothings is a prerequisite. This however leads to downtimes of the cards in question. The EasyTop allows the exchange of the flexible clothings to be effected quickly and easily. 

Highlights:

  • Up 30% shorter downtimes during reclothing
  • Optimal carding gap
  • Cost savings since no additional service tools are required

Areas of application:

  • For cotton, man-made-, and regenerated fibers
  • Available in the working widths 40", 51" and 60"

resist-O-top

resist-O-top is a line of flexible flat clothings used for processing the entire range of short staple fibers. It is progressively set without any straight gaps. The progressive setting pattern favors the removal of short fibers and waste as well as the elimination of neps. This setting pattern influences the so-called free passage, resulting in an improved distribution of the carding forces and a positive effect on the position of the teeth.

Highlights:

  • A special surface treatment guarantees less wear and longer lifetimes.
  • Better quality at the same lifetime compared to competitors’ products
  • Production rates from 150 to 250 kg/h

Areas of application:

  • For cotton, man-made fibers, blends and regenerated fibers
  • Available in the working widths 40”, 48", 50", and 60"
     
InLine-X-Top Deckelgarnitur

InLine-X-Top

InLine-X-Top comprises a range of flexible flat clothings which are used in the area of processing cotton and man-made fibers. This flat clothing with straight gaps and a diagonal setting pattern is particularly suitable for cards without stationary flat systems above the licker-in and production rates in the medium to high range.

Highlights:

  • A special surface treatment guarantees less wear and longer lifetimes.
  • Suitable for cotton with high trash content
  • Production rates from 50 to 80 kg/h
  • Lifetime of up to 1,000 t, depending on the raw material

Areas of application:

  • For cotton and man-made fibers
  • Available in the working widths 40”, 48", 50", and 60"
     

Semi-rigid Flat Clothings

PICCO DIAMANT is a semi-rigid flat clothing for processing man-made fibers and bleached cotton. The special positioning of the teeth leads to minimal flat waste.

Highlights:

  • Special positioning of the teeth for minimal flat waste

Area of application:

  • For cotton, flax, linen, Kevlar, and Nomex

Metallic Flat Clothings

The METALLIC TOP line includes metallic flat clothings for processing man-made fibers and regenerated fibers. Compared to conventional flexible flat clothings it is designed to withstand highest carding strains and is most suitable for high production rates.

Highlights:

  • Long lifetime compared to conventional flat clothings
  • High production rate
  • No resharpening necessary

Area of application:

  • For cotton, man-made fibers, and regenerated fibers

Stationary flat clothings

The entire range of Graf stationary flat clothings is offered in CUTTYSHARP steel quality and ensures a high resistance to wear with a longer lifetime.

Graf offers the corresponding stationary flat clothings for all known cards in use as well as for the pre-opening segments of the blow room equipment. The comprehensive product range allows for a straightforward application for all systems.

Highlights:

  • Long lifetimes thanks to CUTTYSHARP alloy
  • Simple application for all systems
  • Comprehensive scope of delivery

Area of application:

  • For cotton, man-made fibers, and regenerated fibers
