YTC-2000 Tension/Motion-Sensor Stop Motion System

The premier system for quality warp sets with precise tension control and zero lost yarn threads..

The basis of the YTC-2000 is an electro-magnetic, additive unit with motorized tension plate cleaning. Each tensioner module is factory calibrated for highly precise unit/unit tension uniformity. An integrated optical motion-sensor provides fast stop motion at the package. The YTC-2000 takes care of the two major causes of yarn tension variation: creel length and warper speed. The result is excellent yarn tension control across the warp and throughout beam build with no lost yarn threads. Appalachian YTC-2000 users report perfect beam formation, excellent performance at the dye range (for denim ball warps), no laps in the slasher beam creel and a measureable improvement in weave room efficiency.
