Ring Travelers



When it comes to steel travelers for long and short staple spinning, the quality and consistency of the steel wire means everything – so that’s why we start there.

Our specialty wire, which is produced by Carter Wire Companyis drawn to size and annealed in our state-of-the-art furnaces.

The wire is then shaped and travelers are formed, heat treated and finished to exact specifications.

Our metallurgical lab staff conducts extensive testing on our travelers using the latest equipment, so you can trust that each and every A. B. Carter traveler is built to last and run fast.
