These pins are used in conventional staves for the carding of fibres such as jute, sisal, flax, etc. They can also be used for shredding, combing, carding and spinning processes. Ordinary card pins are generally used in hardwood staves, and sometimes the pins are called “doffer”, “stripper”, “worker” or “feeder” pins, depending upon which cylinder the pins are for.
Meta Pins are round in section and generally have a barrel taper for approximately one third of the total pin length. But their point of dissimilarity from a card pin is that the tail of the pin is reduced in diameter for about one third of the pin length. This permits quicker and easier re-pinning.
These pins are used for carding of fibres like jute, sisal flax, manila, hemp, and all other hard/coarse fibres. Meta pins are used in Aluminium staves (which are fitted to card numbers JF1 to 10) and many other metallic rollers and combs.
They are used for drawing of nearly all fibres. The stronger gill pins process fibres like jute, sisal, flax and hemp, while the finer pins are used for woolen/worsted draw frames etc. Most gill pins can used in faller bars, but variations of gill pins are also be utilized in feed rings, tenter plates and porcupines.
