Thread break sensors for quilting machines.

By using Eltex Thread Stop Motion on the upper thread on a quilting machine the quality of the produced material and the overall efficiency will increase while mending time will decrease. In some cases also the bottom thread breaks will be detected. The Electronic Stop Motion will immediately detect a broken thread. It can monitor all types of thread and it is insensitive to dust, dirt or humidity.

Eltex Tension Monitor

Quilting Machine Model.

The Eltex Tension Monitor (ETM) is an on-line device for quilting machines. It monitors the thread tension on the top thread and also acts as a thread break detector. This enables the operator to keep the thread tension within the desired tension range for best operation and quality of the seam. The LEDs on the sensor indicates if the thread tension is outside the selected Indication Limits. If the thread tension exceeds the selected Stop Limits a stop signal will be sent to the machine.

The Eltex Tension Monitor advantages

•  allows the operator to maintain the correct yarn tension
•  acts as a thread break sensor for both top and bottom thread
•  protects against overtension
•  alerts the operator about dust and dirt in the thread tensioners
•  makes it possible to minimise bottom thread waste
