Specialty Cones and Cylinders

Got take-up troubles with such equipment as assembly winders or twisters? Textube performance carriers present a solution for you.

Textube offers outstanding custom capabilities in specialty cones and cylinders, combining in-house tooling, engineering and production, resin choices and molding. The result—optimal mechanical and surface properties for a variety of proprietary applications. Among these strategies...molded-in, precision microgrooves for controlled frictional properties.

Textube’s optimal surface properties, precise dimensions and dimensional stability produce a higher quality package. Significant processing efficiencies are effected along the way. The ultimate payoff...higher quality woven and knit goods.


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

The cost-efficient reliability of thin-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

Optimized mechanical and surface properties for high quality packages.

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


Very fine exotic blend yarns

Heavy industrial yarns


Textube carriers give the desired performance!
