The UKIL eXpert filament Creel options are all designed to provide high performance tension control of the yarn during all phases of operation. Two different “H” type creel options are available (Transfer and Gate). Regardless of the creel type heavy duty construction is used throughout the creel. The number of packages and spacing between them is designed to meet the specific need of the application and if necessary custom designed to fit in areas with limited space.

The Ukil FTR-Creel (Transfer) offers an outside loading and inside running “H”-type configuration. Each position has a running package and auxillary package which allows the end of the running package to be tied to the new package for stopless transfer.
The Ukil FGE-Creel, or Gate Creel, consists of a series of gates. The running packages are located on the inside while the auxiliary packages are outside, where they can be switched out while the machine is running. To switch between packages the gates are simply rotated 180 degrees.
