TK2-20 KT 

Automatic high-performance Kingspool winder

This new development is derived from the TK2-20 CT and uses the same platform, thus it is possible with a conversion kit to switch from a “Kingspool” to a “cone” make-up. The TK2-20 KT offers the same advantages regarding performance, flexibility and operation comfort as the TK2-20 CT. It features by far the highest production performace worldwide.

This new winder is equipped with an electronically synchronized slit-drum displacement with the following benefits:

  • no mechanical re-adjustments needed anymore
  • tube asymetries can be compensated
  • opens window for new bobbin shapes (other than 45° taper angle possible)

As a standard in the basic configuration, absolutely new product features, such as an electronically controlled tuck-in device and the new slit-drum with “quick-lock”, increase the overall efficiency and consequently keep the winding costs to a minimum.
