Continuous Creel

Also known as magazine creel. A warping creel that has two packages per yam position. The first package is actively running, and the second package serves as a reserve. The leading end of the reserve package is tied to the tail end of the active package. As a result when the active package runs out, an automatic transfer occurs thereby allowing the warper to continue without stopping. This creel is ideal for mills running common end count beams.
