J.Clark & Company produce a full range of quality spare parts for the preparation of Flax, Jute and Sisal Fibre.
For Roving and Drawing needs, we supply Brass, Steel or Plastic Gills, and are used on an array of preparatory machinery.
Bomatex, Bolelli, Mackie, Linimpianti, Gardella, Golden Eagle & many more
All our Gills are manufactured on site, using only the best quality base materials and superior needles manufactured in Germany to DIN ISO 9904 standard.
Our precision Gills can be manufactured to any customers’ specification, to an indicated tolerance, and with any chosen pinning requirement.
We supply the following base materials.
BRASS & STEEL BASE
For maximum durability. (For fitting to existing steel fallers, and used in early fibre preparation machinery, such as ‘Gardella’, Mackie, Linimpianti and Bomatex)
These are available in either single or double rows and from Approximately 2.5ppi to 12ppi using from 9’s gauge pins to 19’s.
Should a customer prefer brass/steel gills for 2nd, 3rd, 4th Drawing Frames and Roving Machinery, (Ideal for manual repair,) we would be only too willing to supply.
CARBON FIBRE BASE
Our disposable Carbon Fibre gills have a highly resilient base with the added benefit of being extremely electro-conductive, therefore improving yarn quality and reducing dust collection. Since our material suppliers only offer carbon fibre in BLACK colour, we do not offer our carbon fibre gills colour coded).
J.Clark & Company possess tooling for over six hundred different types of Plastic Gills, including both standard (Drilled with Rivet Fixation Holes, the rivets which we can also supply) and ‘T’ Shape Gills (For Glued Fixation) All are available in both metric and imperial sizes and with either one or two pin row specifications (and also fitted with an optional central rivet if required).
