Airjet Reeds

Burcklé's Airflex® reeds are produced by using the very best raw material and parts. In-house stamping, polishing and finishing enable a strict quality control of all of the manufacturing stages of Burcklé's profiled dents production. Quality reeds are made from quality dents and each reed is produced using the TRINOX technology which ensures our reeds are capable of working in the most challenging conditions and humid environments.

  • 100% stainless steel dents (AISI 301 or improved AISI 420 – MA33 for abrasive yarns).
  • 100% stainless steel binding wire with a high precision diameter to enable high precision reeds.
  • 100% stainless steel half rounds for a stable binding.

A milling machine designed in-house provides perfect tolerances for the most demanding airjet looms.
This "perfect" milling on the two faces of the "U" aluminum profile guarantees:

  • A tolerance of +/- 0.05 mm over 4200 millimeters.
  • Reed holder fixation sides are strictly parallel.
  • A quick change without additional settings.​
  • Constant distance between relay nozzles and reed's tunnel.

Burcklé's Airflex® reeds can as an option be delivered with:

  • Conical entries for 4 to 8 color machines (milled, bi-conical and progressive nose). They allow improved weft insertion and better uncrossing of warp yarns.
  • DLC coating (Diamond-Like Carbon) to prevent premature abrasion when fabric contraction is high.

Burcklé's Airflex® reeds give you:

  • High fabric quality.
  • High precision.
  • High productivity.
  • Cost savings.
  • Constant airflow.
