Reliable weft break sensors
Eltex of Sweden is the leading manufacturer of weft break sensors for the weaving industry and has been for more than 50 years. Our extensive experience and know-how has enabled us to perfect the function and reliability of our sensors.
Weft Break Sensors:
Eltex piezoelectric weft break sensors are optimised for best performance and are designed to fit the requirement of each individual machine type. They sense the weft yarn over the entire fabric width detecting all type of weft faults resulting in a high quality fabric. By using CAN Bus the sensor has the possibility to communicate with the weaving machine to further improve the performance.
The Eltex optical weft break sensor is designed to detect the weft insertion arrival on Air Jet weaving machines. This sensor is of the reflecting type. It’s mounted in front of the reed and is moveable to coincide with any fabric width without cutting the reel.
