17/120 RFR

Continuous round and flat braid

The 17-120 RFR braider is designed for the manufacture of special products consisting of round braid and flat braid sections, in a continuous manner.

The transitions between both types of braiding are smooth, with no splicing of any kind.


These are the first generation of Ratera machines to be fitted with servomotors for driving the horngears. This allows the precise and synchronized movements required for this type of braiding.


Includes module that can be connected to your company’s Ethernet. This can be used, if necessary, to add such utilities as software updates and remote monitoring of the machine’s status.


The touch screen is used to set all of the parameters required to produce braids. Stitches, length and speed can be set for production of each round or flat section. These parameters can be saved as programmed tasks. The machine also features a manual mode for wheeldirected movement.


The 17-120 RFR machine operates with gauge 80 Ratera carriers. Specially designed for fine products that are mainly used in medical applications. Very easy threading.
