Carpeting Futures

A look at Carpet Tech, one of the most important shows in the carpet industry.

Peggy Whaley

Carpeting Futures A look at one of the most important shows in the carpet industry. The DFCMA (Dalton Floor Covering Marketing Association) sponsors a Carpet Technology Show every two year. This years event will be held September 14-16 at the NorthWest Georgia Trade and Convention Center, Dalton, Ga. This show allows carpet industry vendors to showcase their machinery, equipment, services and supplies to the industry. What To Expect For '99Wanda Ellis, executive director of the DFCMA, said the 1999 Carpet Technologies show is sold out: We actually have less exhibitors than normal this year but only because exhibitors are taking larger spaces. They realize the importance of being where the action is to make the right contacts to do business with carpet manufacturers. We expect to feature some new and updated technologies that are helping to drive the growth of our industry.Ellis conveyed that kicking off the show will be a golf tournament held at the Barnsley InnandGolf at Barnsley Gardens in Adairsville, Ga. Exhibitors and members will be supplying players and this will be a charity tournament for the Red Cross.Some of the other planned activities at the show include a round table discussion, a seminar by the British Wool Bureau, and other speakers who will be covering changes in the rug market and carpeting branding (name recognition). There will also be a technical speaker that will address backings being introduced into the industry. There will be something for everyone, including many featured events focusing on education, knowledge and a realm of other opportunities for carpet mills. ExhibitorsNew exhibitors this year include Bruno Machinery, Southern Technical Specialties, Van De Wiele, American Schonherr, Frueden Spunweb, General Design and British Wool Marketing Board. The show is appealing to a broader range of business as it becomes better known.It has helped that we took flyers to the Asia Floor Show and Domotex in Germany. New contacts and other referrals are now wanting more information. Weve been having at least one international visitor each month, Ellis said.Today, most manufacturers think in terms of efficiencies and make use of resources to help maintain and grow profitability. The Carpet Technologies Show allows the opportunities for diversity of products for the industry.Mahlo of America, Germany, represented in America by Bob Harrell, Harrell Machinery Sales, has developed a beta ray gauge which measures the precise amount of latex to go on carpet backings, proportional to the amount of beta rays measured on the receiver end which is based on the thickness of the carpet. Mahlo of America has another machine that electronically sees carpet patterns to make sure they go through tufting and coating processes as straight as possible.Advanced Bio Systems, a wastewater treatment company, has recently begun offering its services to textile companies.Representative Harry DeLoach said the company uses the same technology that has been used to treat wastewater in the pulp and paper business for 18 years. The reasoning behind this is because plants have tremendous costs associated with treatment of wastewater or sludge disposal, and he noted this technology should save money.Carpet Tech ExhibitorsAB Carter Inc.Gastonia, N.C.Booth # 250Accu-Cut/Brockie InternationalClermont, Fla.Booth # A1-33Advanced BioSystems, LLCRoebuck, SC.Booth # 902Aircond Corp.Dalton, Ga.Booth # 148Alcon Systems Inc.Dalton, Ga.Booth # A2 26.American FiltecoMachinery Corp.
