Eco TopEco-Top® is available as a compressible (up to 32%) or non-compressible dye tube. Dimensions include 170 mm (6 inches) and 290 mm (10 inches) – with fleece available for man-made fibre dyeing. Our patented Eco-Top® stacking collar enables outstanding processing for some procedures. 

Benefits include: 

  • Protected yarn reserve during dyeing
  • Best possible performance at weaving looms and knitting machines regarding off winding due to nearly 100% transfer from empty to full dye package
  • Reduced yarn waste
  • Reduced column height enabling an approximately 11% increased transport and dye capacity
  • Yarn package already touching next without pressing

Winding Tubes

Winding tubesSuitable for all automatic winders. Suitable for open-end machines. One-way and multi-way tubes. Precise concentricity. With and without rolled-in nose.
