STAND ALONE FEEDER
The Stand Alone Feeder, SAF is designed as a low cost Semi-Automatic Package Changer. It is a continuous yarn feed option available for use with Lawson-Hemphill instruments or any laboratory machine. This affordable add-on greatly increases laboratory efficiency by reducing operator time during sample preparation.
The SAF allows the operator to tie the yarns without stopping the lab machine. The Feeder can also be equipped with an optional Air Splicer. The SAF increases efficiency of any Knitting or Host machine by allowing the change of a yarn package without stopping the host machine. The end result is higher yarn package throughput and increased efficiency of the host machine.
The SAF is specifically designed with the ease-of-use and durability in mind. It has a yarn reservoir filled with the
yarn so that the test instrument never stops. The SAF base houses the Control Panel and the Indicator Lamp to alert the operator to tie in the next yarn sample when the test length is reached. The test length can be entered from 25m up to 999km.
