Van De Wiele's UCL83 Weaves Patterns And Textures

Belgium-based NV Michel Van de Wiele developed its Universal Cut and Loop UCL83 carpet weaving machine to allow carpet manufacturers to create unique cut and loop patterns and textures using a face-to-face machine. According to Van de Wiele, the UCL83 offers productivity rates up to six times higher than conventional wire weaving machines.

Equipped with a four-position Multihook jacquard machine, profiled lancets and three rapiers, the UCL83 can produce cut pile, short loops, long loops and flat-weave effects simultaneously. The top and bottom rapiers insert the filling for the ground structure of each carpet. The middle rapier is responsible for inserting a dummy filling between the lancets. Loops are formed around the dummy filling, which is then removed. A knife cuts the working pile, creating cut-pile sections as it separates the two carpets.
