The successor to the long-established Airbond Model 101
The old Airbond Model 101 was an innovation in splicing, and it became the industry-standard. It which has been used world-wide by carpet manufacturers and spinners since the mid-1990s. Manufactured using completely new techniques, the 131 is similar in size and shape to the 101, but is a radical advance.
Like the Model 101, the 131 can join a vast range of yarns. It can join high- or low-twist, S-twist or Z-twist without changing chambers. It can even splice S-twist to Z-twist, wool to cotton, glass to tyre cord.
What distinguishes the Model 131 from the 101 is its built-in adaptability, thanks to its 3d printed technology. In its base form, it’s a splicer with a handle, but it can be fitted with a smaller handles, or with a hanging device to be used in a fixed position, or with a carriage for sliding along a rail. It can have flow control, so that line the air blast can be adjusted without altering the factory line pressure. So 131s are available a number of forms – and Airbond’s manufacturing methods even permit the production of bespoke versions, if users have special requirements.
