Direct roving and spin winder
Dietze+Schell has developed a series of precision machines for spinning glass and basalt fibres. Ultra-fine filaments of molten material leave the melt. They change their strength based on the speed with which the winders "pull" at them. Direct roving produces compact cylindrical bobbins whose strand consists of up to 2,500 filaments. Spinning cakes are much thinner in contrast. Their strand consists of 50 to 400 filaments.
Our machines are used to supply the plastics and fibreglass industry. The fibres serve, for example, the manufacture of boat hulls, Smartphone PCBs and rotor blades for wind turbines.
