Length Counter

 

Eliminate Twist Loss and Scrap


Yield Managements introduces a Length Counter for Bunching Machines recently installed on a cell of Setic Twinners. The System accurately measures the twisted cable length allowing cable manufactures to consistently produce master spools of known length. By eliminating the generous safety factors often used in bunching operations, scrap, and short lengths are significantly reduced..
