Wire forming/bending machine, the advantages of each of the three structures are analyzed. At present, the automatic equipment used in the production line is divided into three structures: turning machine, rotary plate machine and multi-axis camless machine.

Domestic Supplies of Polyester Woven Webbings Takes on New Urgency in the Post-COVID Era

The polyester woven webbing market experienced serious short-term disruption from the closing of the last United States manufacturing plants that could supply yarn complying with the Berry Amendment. After some new domestic yarn manufacturers entered the market, some manufacturers, including Bally Ribbon Mills, stepped up to produce 100 percent Berry-compliant polyester webbing for critical safety applications. The material, used for seat belts, tie-downs, retractors, and medical supplies, is of higher quality, meets relevant specifications, and can be engineered to meet specific customer requirements. What's more, positive engineering and manufacturing changes made to adapt to the COVID-19 emergency hold great promise in streamlining and improving future polyester webbing projects.
