Performance. The combination of the long braking surface and the flexible tension leafs of the Uni-brake, means knots and yarn irregularities are handled far more effectively than was previously possible, resulting in reduced yarn stress caused by tension peaks.
The Uni-brake is more universal than other tensioners thanks to its compact design and diverse tension range, requiring less space to give better performance compared to traditional leaf tensioners. For example, the new “Single” Uni-brake applies tension equivalent to a traditional Double “Four-leaf” Tensioner, making the Uni-brake extremely versatile.
Life-span. The life-span of the tension leafs used on the new Uni-brake is dramatically improved thanks to the braking surface being 10 times that of a traditional brake.
