Cardboard Fabric Tubes In The Textile Industry

Cardboard fabric tubes, also known as textile tubes, are hollow tubes made from cardboard. They are a versatile and cost-effective solution and are used in many industries, including the textile industry, for purposes such as storage, shipping and manufacturing.

Cardboard fabric tubes are widely used in the textile industry for fabric storage. The fabric is rolled around the cardboard tube, which helps to keep it organized and prevents damage during storage.

Cardboard Tubes for Fabric Storage

The fabric rolls can be easily removed from the cardboard fabric tubes when needed for production. Additionally, the cardboard fabric tubes can be labelled with identifying information such as fabric type, colour, and batch number, making it easy to track inventory and locate specific rolls of fabric when needed.

The tubes are available in various lengths and diameters to accommodate different sizes of fabric rolls. Overall, cardboard fabric tubes provide a cost-effective and efficient solution for fabric storage in the textile industry.

    Cardboard tubes for rolling fabric

    Another use for cardboard fabric tubes is for rolling fabric into some types of textile machinery. For example, in weaving machines, the tubes are used like bobbins to hold the thread during the weaving process. Meanwhile, in spinning machines, the cardboard fabric tubes can act like a core in which the thread is wrapped to create finished products. They can also be used as a guide to feed the fabric through textile machines.

    Cardboard fabric tubes for shipping

    Fabric cardboard tubes are also commonly used in shipping within the textile industry. Cardboard tubes provide a sturdy container for fabric rolls during transportation when shipping. The textile fabric will be rolled around the cardboard fabric tube which helps to prevent wrinkles and creases. The tubes are available in different lengths and diameters to accommodate different sizes of fabric rolls.
