Poly Tape Creel

The Cygnet Texkimp creels for polymeric tapes (poly tapes) incorporate unique patented designs for unwinding extruded tapes and monofilaments.  Unwinding can occur from a variety of package types with various levels of control and sophistication.  Each position is equipped with tension compensation and quick stop braking control, to ensure even running tension and quick stopping without over-tensioning or breaking any of the running ends.
