Machine Carpet

Machine rugs, also known as machine weaving, are woven carpets on computerized electric weaving looms. Machine carpets have been produced with a wide variety of sizes, colors and different yarns. hand woven carpet The patterns can be produced at much more affordable prices.

In parallel with technology, the differences between the handmade and machine made carpets are decreasing with the development of production techniques. In the past, while carpets words as tariff original handmade carpets, means that currently both handmade and machine-made carpets. Generally wool or other hand-made carpets made from natural fibers, is the reference point of the carpet industry. However, advances in technology have made it possible to design complex carpets (using natural or synthetic fibers) that were not possible for handmade carpets. Nowadays machine rug manufacturers produce high quality carpets by using machines.

For the machine carpet to be woven, the warp is woven from the cotton or jute yarn to the warp and then woven using polyester, bamboo, polypropylene, acrylic, wool or other materials. The type of yarn used in carpets determines its appearance and performance. The natural yarns used in both handmade and machine carpets provide softness, bright colors, long-lasting performance and other visual features. Artificial fibers are only used in machine carpets. Artificial fibers provide bright colors, softness, superior value and easy maintenance. Artificial fiber carpets are not porous, machine carpets made of artificial fibers are resistant to staining and abrasion.

The following yarns are used for machine weaving carpets:

  • Polypropylene - It is known for its resistance to moisture and its texture that resembles wool. It is strong, wear-resistant, fast-drying, non-fading, mold-resistant and resistant to stains. Over time it is felt.
  • Polyamide - Flexible, can withstand heavy traffic and furniture weight. It is resistant to stain and easy to clean. It offers an unlimited variety of bright colors.
  • Wool - natural fibers are the most desirable. Offers natural and soft texture. When dyed it gets soft and saturated beautiful colors.
  • Polyester - Offers velvety softness and shine when cut pile.
  • Acrylic - Offers wool appearance at lower cost. It is sometimes blended with other fibers. Is the most preferred carpet material in Turkey.
  • Cotton - It is a natural fiber with excellent durability and water absorption. It attracts attention with its softness. Available in many colors.
  • Continuous filament (BCF) - these ridges is moved up or synthetic fibers treated prior to the weaving process by mechanical means.
  • Bamboo- It is a natural thread that has been popular recently.
  • Artificial Silk - It is a synthetic fiber, usually viscose. Mercerized cotton can give the same feeling. Artificial silk, also called art yarn, is used to emphasize carpets with a short, dense weaving structure.
  • Mixtures - Can be mixtures of any of the above fibers.

Modern carpet weaving machines operated by computers can produce carpets of various sizes and colors from a predetermined design. Once the design and colors are determined, a computer card tells the computer what size and color machine carpet it should produce. The biggest change in machine carpets color The number has been in the field. The color palette for machine carpets is very broad, using the cross-weaving or intelligent yarn technique, the 40 can produce more color tones in a single carpet model!

Machine Carpet Prices depends on several factors: weaving frequency, yarn type and size. Machine carpets are usually sold at less than the price of handmade carpets and carpets made of artificial fibers are normally cheaper than natural fibers.

Another difference between hand-made or hand-knotted carpets and machine-made carpets is that the machine carpets are not actually knotted. In the case of a machine carpet, the fibers are placed in place by a machine and then secured with a latex support. This process is also on the carpet sure-footed it gives feature and creates a grid view behind the carpet.

Carpet performance is also determined by the frequency of weaving. The greater the frequency (the more nodes, the fibers), the better your carpet will look. As with hand-woven carpets, creating more stitches in the same area gives better carpet density and better quality. Machine carpets can now touch up to the frequency of 3 million / m2. This figure is much more than the finest weaved Hereke carpets.
