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:

Loop Pile

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

Cut Pile

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

Cut Loop

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

Level Cut Loop

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