Model 110

The splicers in the 110 series are very simple tools, designed principally for glass and carbon fibres in the composites market sector. We were asked to supply a splicer for making joints in yarns of very heavy count - typically glass fibre and carbon fibre rovings of 4800 tex or more. We were already making the rugged, simple Model 101 carpet-yarn splicer, which had proved its reliability over several years of service. It made good technical sense to develop the new Airbond Model 110 by modifying the Model 101. The result was a simple, light splicer, which could make good joints in rovings.

  • The 110 makes very long, weakly-intermingled splices to join yarns such as glass which cannot withstand sharp bending.
  • The 110 makes very long, strongly-intermingled splices to join yarns such as aramids, which are inherently very strong, and which need a correspondingly strong splice strength.

The 110 has set a high standard as an effective and user-friendly tool for making extra-large splices in very heavy yarns. It has been widely accepted as an effective heavy-count splicer in countries across the world. The 110 is already splicing 4800 tex as routine, and a development programme is underway to extend its range towards 10000 tex.

Typical applications (all models):

Splice format: Ends-opposed (see technical section)
Yarns: Glass rovings, carbon fibre precursors, Panox, carbon fibre rovings, Aramid
Yarn counts: 100 tex to 6000 tex
Twist: zero or low twist
Typical applications: Magazine creeling, filament winding, pultrusion, weaving

110 Series splicers are available in six forms, according to which accessories are chosen by the user.
