Steeger vertical fine wire braider/type - K80 series

These braiders represent the work horse for the medical industry for producing catheters, tubes and a variety of invasive and non-invasive products which need designed flexibility, stiffness, kink ability, torque and redial strength.Steeger braiders are available with 4,8,12,16,20,24,32,36,48 up to 200 carriers in increments for four. Our carrier design, which unrolls wire from a horizontally placed bobbin enables braiding the most tension sensitive materials without coiling or twisting.

40mm (1.57")OD X 25mm (0.98") traverse with barrel diameter of30mm (1.18")

43mm (1.70")OD X 26mm (1.02") traverse with barrel diameter of25mm (0.98")

Production speed--up to 620 picks/min

Drive system--single or multiple gear motor 0.3HP, 220VAC, 3phase, speed control through AC frequency inverter.

Capstan--12” (304.8mm)OD and 4” (101.6mm)wide, provides slip free take up, using multiple wraps. Take-up ration adjustable through change gears ratio 5 to 94 picks/inch.

Pay off and winding-up device--for plastic spools 12” (304mm )OD*8” (203mm)between flanges. (Traversing device adjustable to different spool sizes) Tension sensitive winding device suitable to wind with less than 200 gram tension.

Total enclosure--reduce noise level and add to overall safety. Door interlocks will shutdown braider whenever enclosure doors are openin
