Airbond has always made splicers of unique form and function, specially developed for use in the manufacture of all forms of traditional textiles. We have a particular expertise in the field of carpet yarn splicing, and our range of carpet yarn splicers – the 101, 102, 103, 104, and 105, have been industry-leading for years.
Textiles manufacture is expensive; waste is costly, and machine down-time is disruptive. Airbond’s new splicers reduce waste at all stages of manufacture. Their greatest benefit is in making splices connecting bobbin to bobbin, ensuring continuity of production. There is no need to halt the production process when bobbins run out, or when the fabric specification needs to be changed.
By around 2010, Airbond had established a world lead, by developing novel splicing technology to meet the challenging requirements of the textiles industry. But our commitment to R&D, and the adoption of additive manufacturing technology, has led to further progress. We can now offer a range which is lighter, stronger, and better-performing than ever.
We know that the industry will continue to expand and change; Airbond will embrace that change, building new and better splicers, using our expertise to provide even greater capability for our customers.
