Yarn passed through the B.M.M. Cone Winder is metered, waxed if desired, and wound on cones. Waxing is usually used for yarns to be further machine processed. The speed at which the cone is built, tension at which the yarn is applied and length of yarn on each cone in yards or meters can be preset. The Cone Winder automatically stops when the desired amount of yarn has been wound or a breakout occurs. For the best results the cone winder should be paired with the steamer which sets the twist in the yarn.
