Traveling Package Creels

Warper creels that are also known as “V” creels. The outside of this V-shaped creel is used to supply yarn to the warper head while it is running. During warping, the inside of the creel is loaded with new packages. When the outside packages are spent, the operator rotates the creel, and the full packages move to the outside of the creel where they can be warped onto the next beam. Then the inside is staged again.
