Wilcom Highlights 3-D AutoTuft Machine At Domotex

Australia-based Wilcom International Pty. Ltd. — a computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacturing and machine control solutions company — highlighted its recently introduced AutoTuft 3-D custom rug-tufting machine at Domotex 2009 that took place this week in Hannover, Germany.

The 3-D AutoTuft creates sculpted and textured effects with intricate patterns in rugs and wall hangings. The machine is highly automated and can switch between cut and loop pile without operator intervention. Depending on the design, production speeds can reach 1,000 to 1,500 revolutions per minute.

The machine comes with Wilcom Mira Carpet and Rug Design software, which allows a designer and the customer to view the 3-D design without the cost of sampling.

“The ability to design rugs with variable pile heights, mixtures of cut and loop pile as well as 3-D sculpting effects really opens the door to fantastic new effects while maintaining high productivity and automation,” said Bill Wilson, technical director, Wilcom. “We’ve received such positive and excited reactions to this, and we are really just scratching the surface of what is possible.”
