The OPTIFIL-3D thread eye 


OPTIFIL-3D thread eye in comparison with the standard thread eye

Targeted further development

The proven benefits of the OPTIFIL thread eye have been further developed with a modern production method for plastic healds.

The especially smooth surface of the OPTIFIL-3D thread eye reduces friction on the warp yarn to an absolute minimum. The thread movement in the OPTIFIL thread eye is gentler and straighter in all shed positions. Shed changes are also gentler on the contact surfaces of neighboring healds.

The densities per heald frame and centimeter can be increased by up to 30 percent, thanks to the optimal design. Depending on the fabric construction, the number of heald frames can be reduced, facilitating increased weaving machine operating 


Features and Advantages:

  • The warp yarn no longer lies on   edges but on flat surfaces – reducing d  pressure and friction
  • The heald geometry enables higher densities
  • The broader contact surfaces prevent rapid cutting-in of the thread eye
  • Depending on the fabric construction, the number of heald frames can be reduced
  • Less warp yarn breakage and higher machine efficiency
  • Gentle processing of fine filament yarns  for high fabric quality
  • Longer heald service life
