Innovation in advanced yarn feeding control

BTSR will be highlighting the new ULTRAFEEDER2, UNIFEEDER2 and ROLLING FEEDER at ShanghaiTex 2017.

ULTRAFEEDER2 is a radical evolutionary step in Yarn Constant Tension Feeding Technologies state-of-art and innovation process.

It comes built up with the most advanced materials (aluminium, magnesium, carbon fiber) which guarantee unique features in terms of lightness, strength and small-size dimensions.

The ULTRAFEEDER2 is designed for the most demanding needs of many applications. According to BTSR, the updated design and accurate ergonomics (i.e. upper positioned display for easy reading, optimized space around the wheel for easy yarn threading) guarantee utmost features in terms of user-friendly operations.

In addition, new powerful processor and updated electronics in combination with the advanced built -in materials provide unique performances in terms of response time and yarn tension reading accuracy.

ULTRAFEEDER2 also comes with a further improved motor torque allowing new applicative possibilities and enhanced performances in feeding yarns with high selections dynamics.

The new smart yarn input accessory set and the double coil separator system provide this device with unique advanced features and applicative benefits to machine operator.

ULTRAFEEDER2 is designed for the most demanding needs in socks/hosiery, seamless, knitting, several looms applications and sewing machines.

It works with any kind of yarn in many different applications, with thin bare, covered and interlaced elastomers (11,13,15 Dtex), nylon, cotton and technical fibers.

ULTRAFEEDER2 represents a technological revolution destined to change the ‘Game Rules’ and supply an epochal change in textile market technological offer as well as in the future textile operators’ demand.

ROLLING FEEDER a specific solution for bare spandex yarn feeding. It shows unique features thanks to its capability to combine the capability to feed the yarn at constant tension and simultaneous constant LFA/speed (BTSR Patent).


The new UNIFEEDER2 has started to generate a growing positive feedback from the market. It features unique capability of guaranteeing utmost precise size control in garment production, thus impacting in production cost saving and drastic waste reduction.
