Colortec Patterning Technology

Colortec Patterning Technology

Colortec provides the ultimate in tufting patterning technology (full width repeat) by integrating Cobble`s well established techniques of individual needle control ( ICN ) , sliding needle bar ( SNB ) and intermittent cloth feed. This unique combination enables sideways filling of each row with any permutation of up to 6 colours, before indexing forward on to the next tuft row. Servo technology of the needlebar head together with the provision of computer controlled stitch selection provides complex pattern designs, which can be changed rapidly at the through the simplicity of the Cobble TMUI ( Tufting Machine User Interface) Electronic Control Panel.

The Colortec is available in 2m, 3m, 4m and 5m widths and in gauges of 1/7” and 5/32” pitch.

The gauges available on Colortec, in combination with computerised yarn placement technology, equips it to fulfil the diverse design requirements of the hospitality and commercial speciality market in addition to separate sectors covering rugs and logo mats.
