MANUFACTURING CARPET BACKING
Carpets are used in a variety of ways, for example in hotel lobbies, in meeting rooms, in airplanes and in everyday life in our living rooms.
Increase fabric quality
A high level of strength and dimensional stability is expected from high-quality carpet backing fabrics. This is important for the further production process in carpet manufacturing and also for the consumer’s requirements for a carpet.
In order to achieve a stable base fabric, constant thread tensions are a prerequisite for weaving. The WeftMaster SFB-L thread brake guarantees a constant and even weft thread tension over the entire width of the fabric. Controlled braking is guaranteed even with polypropylene straps.
Increase weaving efficiency
By using the WeftMaster SFB electronic weft thread brake, the number of weft breaks can be substantially reduced. Its use pays off for the weaving mills within a very short time and significantly improves the quality of the fabric.
