More about Louet Drum Carders...


No Need to Tease! Feed fiber directly into the licker-in (feeder drum)

Louet drum carders have a larger licker-in drum and no nlouet drum carder detaileed to adjust drums or drum placement! Louet carder teeth are longer and flexible! Louet carders eat right out of your hand!  These machines have twice as much capacity as other drum carders! These carders remove dirt from fiber as it cards and sealed gears prevent dirt and fibers from getting into the machine!

Louet has been manufacturing Drum Carders for more than 20 years for the market world wide and has never had to replace carding cloth due to wear of the carding cloth that could be attributed to the intertwining of the teeth. Again, in more than 20 years, Louet has never replaced a gearbox.
