Flat Tops Textile Carding

For the best results, a proper selection of flat tops is as critical as selecting a cylinder wire. ICC manufactures a wide range of tops to suit various fibres on different makes of card.

We have one of the most sophisticated facilities manufacturing these tops, where each individual top is checked to ensure it meets the required specifications. To help consistently maintain our products' quality over any given production rate, ICC offers flat tops with High Tensile (HT), High Fatigue life and Micro Alloy Steel (MAS) wires.

Nextra Tops

Applications and Features:
i.) Unique position of wire points on the tops helps the effective removal of knots from fiber (Neps), short fibres and trash
ii.) This maintains the necessary fibre at a high production rate without any rupturing
iii.) Unique matrix of wire tips
iv.) Our revolving tops are able to work with cylinder speeds above 450 RPM to produce a high quality of output from the new generation of carding machines
v.) Made from high-wear resistant and high-fatigue life raw materials, ideally suited for today's carding machine

Triumph Progressive

The success of Triumph tops has encouraged our R&D cell to develop a new series in the Triumph tops range with an enhanced performance suitable for very high production cards.

Maintaining cleanliness of the tops is a critical requirement for maintaining consistency in quality carding at a high production rate. It is equally critical that the fibres in a tuft should not be subjected to heavy strain during the opening and the individualization process of yarn.

Applications and Features:
i.) Configuration has been improved to reduce strain on fibre
ii.) Gradually augmented wire population from entry to exit zone of the fibre passage through tops
iii.) Smooth lance in the wire points allows air flow to keep the tops clean during operations
