Textile Sinker & Needle Steel

Textile machine manufacturers and textile producers expect their textile sinkers & needles to be manufactured and finished with particular precision. When used in machinery for knitting, weaving, embroidery, felting, tufting and carding or raschel machines the best qualities are just barely good enough. Baomit strip steel meets the highest requirements made by needle manufacturers with precise thickness tolerances, good surface finish, and uniform microstructure. If you would like to learn more the quality of our strip steel then please contact our experts now!
