The CCS ProLoft 300 Fine Opener is constructed with laser cut steel side frames. The horizontally fed metallic wire wound feed rolls allow the operator to use highly siliconized fibers and still hold the fiber back for maximum fiber opening. The main metallic wire wound opening cylinder is a high speed well balanced cylinder for maximum fiber opening. A combination of wire specifications, cylinder speed and accurate gaging allows the ProLoft 1000 Fine Opener to prepare the fiber at a very high production rate. The unit includes a front access door for maintenance and cleaning with an intergrated motion detecting safety devise to protect the operator during coast down.
