Making yarn sensors for the textile industry

Being the original inventor of infrared yarn sensors, we have a wealth of knowledge, experience and expertise which enables us to create the world’s best contactless products – all specifically developed to solve unique textile manufacturing problems.

With an experienced approach and ambitious outlook, we continually strive to improve our design and manufacturing standards – making our yarn sensors the most reliable and value-for-money products on the market today.

Transmissive sensors

Our range of transmissive sensors detect ballooning or straight line running yarns without contact. They automatically compensate for dirt, dust and wax as well as other impurities and are mainly used on staple fibre processes such as spinning and winding.

DTY

DTY

Specially designed to detect a full range of yarns including fine dtex filament and elastomeric. This sensor has a compensation system and can be supplied with a touch switch to inhibit the detection process.

Plastic DTY

Plastic DTY

A low cost version of the industry standard DTY sensor which is able to withstand a harsh environment while detecting the finest yarns that can be made.

40T

40T

Developed to be used extensively on cotton winding applications for yarn pick up sensing – each individually designed to meet exacting machine requirements.

Custom designed

Custom designed

Our whole range of transmissive sensor designs can be customised to suit individual machine requirements and fit any space – all developed within our R&D department.

Reflective sensors

Our range of reflective sensors detect signals reflected from traversing or straight line yarn tracks without contact (mainly on filament high speed winders). Built to withstand severe conditions, these sensors can also be used on staple yarns and can work at speeds as low as 1m/min as well as with very fine yarn counts.

Plastic DTY

Wrap

Developed to detect yarn wrapping on a roller and help prevent machine damage, the sensors are designed to match each application and detect the change in a rollers surface reflection – operating a warning output.

DTY

Nelson

Our industry standard sensor is used to detect traversing or straight line running yarn – typically on filament high speed winding.

40T

Traverse

Employed to detect a traversing yarn and ensure that the yarn is running correctly – each design is customised to suit the machine requirements.
