Tufting

The whole nine yards - from individual modules to perfectly integrated overall system

Tufting Gauge Parts from Groz-Beckert do a great job. They help form the base for tufted surface textiles – whether rug or bathroom mat, artificial turf for sports facilities and landscaping, or high quality carpeting for cars. Tufting machines up to five meters wide and with up to 4,000 needles, loopers, reed fingers and knives produce high quality textile fabric at speeds of up to 1,500 rpm. The perfect interaction and high performance of Tufting Gauge Parts makes it all possible.

Tufting technology

Tufting employs a backing (web or woven fabric). Pile yarn is brought onto this backing. Basically, the various designs are manufactured with the following four methods:

Cut Pile

For cut pile, needle loops are cut open with a special cutting system in an additional work step.

Loop Pile

In loop pile fabric, the carpet surface consists of individual needle loops.

Cut Loop

At normal yarn tension, a combination of cut and loop pile results in a high cut-pile, and at low tension a low loop-pile.

Level Cut Loop

A special combination of loop- and cut-pile fabric is manufactured with air-controlled loopers.
