In 2011, the former company Steel Heddle (USA) had its production of section frames transferred to Burcklé in order to be closer to our main OEM customers. As a result of being closer to our main customers, both communication and technical co-operations were improved. Nowadays, Burcklé is capable of supplying section frames (up to 6 sections) for 14, 16, 20 & 24 mm pitches. Indeed, it can also supply in 10 & 12 mm pitches for the high frames package that are used for some special forming fabrics weaving.
PMC fabrics are woven with a high density and under considerable tension (up to 65,000 N/m). In order to competently fit your frames, Burcklé offers a wide range of heddles: flat stainless steel heddles, twin wire heddles with an integrated eyelet and brazed high heddles for strong high tension resistance.
For yarns used in forming fabrics weaving, Burcklé offers flat stainless steel heddles measuring up to 0.50 mm in thickness. Optional eyelet super polish is offered for sensitive yarns and a special eye shape is offered for the high density heddles package. For warp preparation, Burcklé also offers several types of guiding and leasing reeds.
