    Check this out. I suppose they are used in racquet factories to string new, "prestrung" racquets. They are in a category called "Racquet Factory Stringing Machines".

    Yea, the air series is what I understand is most commonly used in the factories in China on the prestrung frames. Groups of women preweave all of the mains and crosses, leaving a loop of string outside the frame. I am told the stringers then mount the frame and pull 4 strings at a time at high tension and fast pull speeds and then tie them off. The tensioning process takes about 2 mins.
