Apart from many traditionally woven carpets on the RCE+ carpet weaving machine, Vandewiele will also promote the digitally controlled RCF machine with Fast Creel, cut-loop machines, and specific machines for weaving light carpets at the Domotex Turkey 2022. All will be illustrated by carpet samples at the trade fair from May 14-17, 2022 in Gaziantep/Turkey.
The digital control of yarns allows the development of new qualities, a higher production efficiency and a closer follow-up of the machine park. Yarn waste is reduced at the highest production speed. Combinations of cut pile carpets with flatweave as well as sisal look carpets will be presented.
In tufting, the digital control of pile yarns (active yarn feed, also called IPD) has allowed Vandewiele NV, Kortrijk/Belgium, the development of high definition Colortec 1/10” tufting carpet in 8 colors – or 1/7” gauge, competing with the traditional Axminster carpets. Solutions for plain carpets, artificial grass and the Myriad machines for tiles and other applications will also be highlighted. The new autonomous shearing machine, ATSH, will be presented in detail. For the back coating the focus will be on energy saving.
Superba SAS, Moulhouse Cedex/France, a leader in heat-setting with saturated steam under pressure, is now offering the hot-air heat-setting solution with the DHS3 line. This triple-layer heat-setting process provides a very high level of evenness and a highly homogenous fixation characteristic to the yarn, as well as stain resistance or enhanced bulk. The DHS3 line offers a high energy saving process in a reduced floor-space.
To complete their range, Superba, a brand of Vandewiele, is also introducing their new B403 automatic winder. This machine has an individual spindle motorization drive; it enables a constant tension winding process, an accurate bobbin length measuring as well as a unique quality control for each yarn position.
Finally, with the BXE extrusion line from Vandewiele, the MF400 texturizing machine and the MCD3 space-dyeing machine as complementary processes before heat-setting, with Superba lines, the carpet industry is offered all the necessary equipment to produce innovative yarn types.
All the Vandewiele machines can be connected through cloud computing to the “TEXconnect” supervision system to comply with the Factory 4.0 concept.
