1. Single-head cone winding machine

A Single head cone winding machine is one of the most popular types of textile machinery used in spinning. Features inexpensive, easy to operate and maintain.

This machine is used to wind yarn onto cones or tubes, which are used in the next stages of the textile manufacturing process. It has a single head, meaning it can only wind one cone at a time.

2. Double spindles bobbin winding machine

Double spindles bobbin winding machine is mainly used for winding yarn and other materials into cones. This machine is with 2 spindles that can wind single yarn or multiple yarn, such as cotton yarn, wool yarn, chemical fiber, PP yarn, etc.

Compared with the single head yarn winding machine, it has the advantages of high speed, high efficiency, low noise, and good winding quality.

3. Automatic cone winding machine

Automatic cone winding machines are widely used in textile factories to wind yarn onto bobbins and spools. This machine can wind filament, spin, and fancy yarns onto various packages, such as paper and plastic cones. And the whole winding process is controlled by a PLC, which enables the machine to wind yarn accurately with consistent tension.

At Credit Ocean, we manufacture the winding machine consisting of a winding head, yarn guide, yarn tensioner, and winding tension control system, among other components. The machine is also equipped with various safety features to protect the operator.

5. Hank to cone winder

Hank to cone winding machine is widely used to wind yarn from one package (hank) to another package (cone) automatically and effectively.

Credit Ocean will be the best choice if you are a textile factory looking for solutions to winding yarn from large hanks used for dyeing to smaller cones used for weaving or knitting.

Thanks to over 20 years of manufacturing experience, our machines can be manual or automatic, depending on the size and complexity of the operation.

Initial cost

  • It is typically a high-cost investment that requires a high upfront cost. This can be especially difficult for small businesses or organizations that need more funds to invest in such a large piece of equipment.
  • Additionally, it can be difficult to justify the cost when other cheaper alternatives manufacturers can use to achieve the same results.

Limited customization

  • The machine's capabilities limit the types of yarns.
  • It can also limit the output speed and efficiency of the process. Additionally, adjusting and modifying the machine components can be challenging.
  • The cones must match the desired yarn size.


  • Using it effectively necessitates a period of training.
  • Cone winding machines may require frequent maintenance and calibration.
