Xplore Micro-Fiber Line

The Xplore Micro-Fiber Line consists of two units; the Winding Unit, and the Conditioning Unit. The Winding Unit is a high speed programmable system designed for the draw down and collection of the initial fiber. The system will accelerate in a programmed manner up to 200 m/min and collect the sample on a traversing winder. The winder can separate the material from the initial start up from the actual sample that is fully draw down to the desired diameter. The spool of material can then be transferred to the Conditioning Unit and the sample can undergo a single or a series of stretches at differing stretch ratios, stretch temperatures all programmed in advance.
