RINGS
Trusted for the Long Run

RINGS

A. B. Carter offers a wide range of ring styles, sizes and finishes for short and long staple ring spinning. All rings are manufactured using the highest quality materials for unparalleled consistency and service life. Vertical (HZ) steel, conical (J) and sintered metal ring lubrication systems are also available for spinning and twisting operations that require oil ring systems.

SHORT STAPLE SPINNING

S-2000 RINGS

The S-2000 is our premier ring finish designed to maximize performance in high speed spinning, applications. This superior surface finish offers longer life service life of the ring while enhancing the traveler performance even in the most demanding spinning conditions. Our S-2000 rings have proven time and time again to offer consistent yarn quality in regards to reducing yarn hairiness and have become the ring of choice for many modern spinning plants worldwide.

Features and Benefits

  • Consistency in the coating translates into roughness values in the hundredths of a micron, which equates to better spinning performance.
  • Extremely low coefficient of friction, which leads to shorter than normal break-in cycle.
  • Highly polished surface reduces traveler instability and improves yarn quality.
  • High coating hardness ensures consistent flange profile, thus eliminating the need to vary traveler weight throughout life of the ring.

RESOURCES AND MATERIALS

METRO RINGS

Our Metro rings (black in color) are designed for use in medium speed applications on all fiber types and counts. These rings offer an excellent quality/price ratio and are available for any brand of spinning frame.

FEATURES AND BENEFITS

  • Made from the best high carbon-high chrome steel to ensure increased hardness (HRC 60-64), which equates to excellent wear resistance.
  • Smooth, micro-porous surface provides excellent sliding properties, which accelerates the formation of the required fiber lubrication film creating an ideal traveler running path.
  • Good resistance to corrosion.

RESOURCES AND MATERIALS

LONG STAPLE SPINNING AND TWISTING
CONICAL RINGS

Conical rings are supplied for worsted and semi-worsted spinning applications as well as for twisting coarser filament yarns and specialty yarns. These rings are available in several heights with different lubrication systems to suit the varying spinning/twisting requirements.

FEATURES AND BENEFITS

  • Manufactured from the best high carbon-high chrome core hardened steel which ensures excellent wear resistance.
  • Special low-roughness polished finished surface to ensure consistent performance and yarn quality.
  • Special Conical/Concave design which allows the optimum ring and traveler contact.

AVAILABLE RING HEIGHTS

  • 9.1mm, 11.1mm, 17.4mm

RESOURCES AND MATERIALS

SINTERED METAL RINGS

Sintered metal vertical rings are supplied for many different industrial yarn twisting applications (fiberglass twisting, carpet and tire cord twisting, industrial yarn twisting and draw twisting.) These rings are available in many different heights with different lubrication systems to suit the varying machine requirements.

FEATURES AND BENEFITS

  • Our sintered metal rings are made from the highest quality raw materials and manufacturing technology to ensure excellent performance in the most demanding working conditions.
  • Extra hard finish combined with a smooth surface to ensure long life and consistent traveler performance.
  • All rings have an interconnected porosity to ensure the proper oil flow from the oil reservoir through the ring up to the traveler running path.

MATERIAL TYPES

  • NYLON 4: Specifically designed for nylon traveler applications including spinning and twisting of carpet yarns, tire cord, sewing threads, coarse fiberglass and polypropylene yarns.
  • NYLON 5: Specifically designed for use of medium to fine count fiberglass yarns. Ring is supplied with a special cotton wick.
  • STEEL 1: Designed for steel traveler applications in twisting worsted, semi-worsted and blended yarns.

STANDARD RING HEIGHTS/DEPTHS

  • 3.7mm, 4.8mm, 6.35mm, 9.52mm, 10.3mm, 12.4mm, 12.7mm, 16.7mm, 17.1mm, 25.4mm, 38.1mm
