Textile industry

The textile industry uses many different types of yarn for their spinning and weaving processes. During this process, it is important that the separate yarns show no signs of breakage in the individual fibres.

During the process, the yarn is transported along different types of thread guides. These may vary from relatively simple eyelets to more complex pigtails.

The advantage of using ceramic thread guides is that the surfaces the yarn is transported over, have a smooth finish. This, in combination with excellent wear resistance, makes the material supremely suitable for use in the textile industry.
