Automation & Handling

Cygnet Texkimp has developed a range of state-of-the-art automation and handling solutions to work alongside our fibre processing and converting technologies. These are designed to help customers manipulate bobbins of fibre on and off machinery, plug labour gaps and reduce associated costs, maintain fibre quality and improve product traceability.

By automating the process of loading and unloading packages of fibre, manufacturers have, in recent years, been able to accommodate larger and heavier packages as a way of increasing production capacity and speed and reducing downtime.

Cygnet Texkimp’s portfolio of customised automation and handling technologies not only improve process efficiency but also enhance the quality of the fibre, tape or yarn by reducing physical handling and improving traceability and in-process checking.

AGV Systems

Our AGV systems are commonly used to transport large packages of fibre around a plant and control the inventory of creel systems.

Creel Loading Systems

Creel Loading Systems are commonly used to lift and load large, heavy packages of fibre on and off a creel in a factory setting.

Winder Tending Systems

Our customisable winder tending systems are robotic systems used to automatically load fibre unwinds or unload winders.

Packaging & Palletising Systems

Bespoke Packaging and Palletising Systems are fully automated systems using robotics to manage packages off a production line

Lift Assist & Lifter Loaders

Our lifter loaders (manipulators) are an aid to picking and placing large and/or heavy objects over a defined distance.
