The picture above clearly shows wear and damage to the wire points after 7 months of running the wire flats. This wear and damage causes more fibre rupture which eventually requires the wire flats to be replaced.
The picture above clearly shows the pin points are still sharp and smooth after 13 months running the pinned flats.
With the pin points there is no area to damage the fibre. Pinned Flats have a longer life and can be used well after wire flats must be replaced which helps reduce machine maintenance costs, down time losses and replacement parts costs.
