Textile machines In textile machines, minute fibre particles can increase abrasive wear by several orders of magnitude.

Textile machines BALINIT® combines high hardness with a smooth surface, making it the ideal wear protection for such components as the weft clamps of looms, yarn guides, grippers and cutting edges.
Weft clamps

Formerly, borated steel components were used for the weft clamps of gripper looms. However, the relatively rough surface that this treatment produces leads to unfavourable operational behaviour.

The coating with BALINIT® CNI combines high hardness and wear resistance with a smooth surface, so that the yarn is reliably clamped.
