German Brückner lands a great success with Turkish carpet giant
Turkish Dinarsu Imalat ve Ticaret T.A.S. (established 1955 for the production of yarn and blankets) producing tufting carpets since 1975 and becoming a giant market player in this field with manufacturing about 10 million m2 annually (tufting and nonwoven carpets and artificial lawns) has recently acquired a German made Brückner coating line for tufting carpets
The newly installed Brückner coating line is one of the biggest of its kind with a total length of around 170 m. The capacity is up to 20 million m2 annually depending on the type of fabric and processing. The line allows pre-spread coating for pile integration, secondary-back laminating with flat fabric or nonwovens and foam coating with flat foam or embossed foam.
The drying process takes place by 23 DUO-THERM drying zones especially dedicated to carpet coating. The gas headed dryer operates with a temperature splitting for the thermal treatment of the pile and the coating side. It achieves a high drying capacity in operation and is very gentle for the pile. The separated air circulation of the upper and lower air levels allows temperature difference of up to 60°C. The Venturi mixing system for gas heating permits a perfect temperature distribution and the inverter-controlled circulating air ventilator guarantees a fast reaction on the manufacturing of different types of fabrics and by preventing pile deformations.
There are two applications units in the carpet application machine, one for the pre-spread and the other for the glue / foam application. The integrated straightener allows to straighten fabric distortions and there is also a function integrated straightening according to pattern. Two camera systems detect either the carpet back or the pile side with fully automated correction of distortions.
