Because this carder is so effective at blending fibres, it can be difficult to do techniques like the Art Batt (also known as the "Fibre Sandwich"). We included provision for the Direct Injection Feed Tray that supplies the fibre to the licker in much later.

Applying the fibre to the licker-in later means it is broken up less and not opened up quite so much. Hence more texture is left in the batt which is a critical element in Art Batts.

A pair of screws secures the Direct Injection tray onto the main brace.
