Now with dual yarn feed option, the Mtuft Hollow Needle uses a single hollow needle for producing high value broadloom carpet or rugs in widths up to 5 metres.
A great benefit of this machine is in the potential to use reclaimed yarn. The hollow needle produces loop pile carpet, which may be sheared after tufting to create a cut pile surface. The servo controlled pile height can be used to develop variable height product for high-low patterning effects, or allow tip shearing of high pile areas of the product for cut and loop effects.
The Mtuft Hollow Needle runs roll-to-roll and has extensive yarn stop motion functions, meaning that the machine can run unattended for long periods of time. The dual yarn feed option allows the production of rugs with 2 colours. Either colour can be fully hidden for high contrast patterns, or precisely height controlled for subtle shading effects.
Product size, gauge, stitch rates, pile heights, cam shift and pattern are all software controlled and easily configured using the colour touch screen.
