Carpet Cones and Cylinders

The greatest frustration in carpet manufacturing, perhaps? Inconsistent yarn packages that cause even the best machines to seem ready for the boneyard. The cause? Substandard carriers. For consistent packages, a carrier must be dimensionally correct, highly uniform and stable under load. Its surface finish must be optimized for even tension and tail control. It must be durable to maintain performance if reused.

Leading processors already know the Textube difference for spinning, winding, twisting, heat setting/cabling, finish winding or doubling.

Why? Consistent packages. Higher processing efficiencies and enhanced take-off performance. And the ultimate payoff…higher quality product.


Dimensional stability

Precisely controlled cone and cylinder length

Absolutely consistent inside diameter at both the base and the nose

Lot-to-lot uniformity—absolutely critical for productivity on automated spinning frames

Absolute dimensional stability regardless of relative humidity

The multi-cycle durability of heavy-wall carriers

Surface properties

Custom-engineered molded surfaces or finishes

Optimized tension development, especially critical for early turns

Improved retention—tails neither slough off too soon, nor stick too long to the carrier

Productivity-enhancing tail transfer from package to package

Material options to engineer individual solutions

Base resin compounds

Impact-modified resins

Filled resins

Engineering grade resins

Consistent dimensional precision with high stability under load.

Think Textube...think performance

Resin colors

Wide range of solid color choices

Exclusive two-color molding capability

Hundreds of dual color combinations

Dual variable coding for easy identification of packages

Code by plant, yarn weight, fiber blend, machine, etc.—any two combinations of variables


Recycle yarn carriers best by reusing them

Even our thin-wall carriers offer multiple cycles

Heavy-wall carriers give many times the cycles of thin-wall

Accepted by plastic recyclers for further cost-efficiency
