VDW Academy - Myriad

The Myriad is the successful combination of the experience of Cobble and the constant drive for innovation by Van de Wiele, which has led to the development of a completely new tufting machine with individual yarn control at high production speeds. Unlimited design flexibility is added to Cobble's robust, fast running tufting machines through a third dimension: the pattern attachment called "Myriad", where each pile yarn is controlled by a separate servomotor. The main features of the Myriad are explained in this 3-minute video:

00:47 Loop pile tufting principle explained: the looper picks up the pile yarn that is stitched through the backing cloth by the needle

01:19 The Myriad attachment with compact water-cooled servomotor modules. This pattern attachment can be built up on both sides of the machine, providing easy access to the yarns coming from the creel

01:53 Designs are transformed into a tufted carpet by the use of our in-house developed TuftLink software

02:59 Centralized Energy Bus, reducing energy consumption and allowing the machine to come to a controlled standstill during power disruption

03:20 For increased user-friendliness a new human machine interface or HMI was developed with 3 touch screen controlled main screens: Home, Explorer and Settings

03:33 ProTechna quality control

VDW Academy - ST Grass

The ST Grass is a state-of-the-art grass tufting machine available in both 4 and 5 meter versions. Due to its high productivity, the ST Grass is the ideal machine for sports and landscaping applications. With its fully cast iron frame, the use of a heavy yarn count, typically up to 16.000 dtex, is possible. In this 3-minute video the following features are shown:

00:27 Double-sided yarn feed for maximum flexibility

00:40 Optimal control of yarn feed by servomotors

00:53 In-house manufactured gauge parts to obtain maximum reliability

01:30 Servo-driven puller rolls with intermittent cloth feed: useful for tufting longer pile grass products. It avoids needle bending and elongated stitching holes, producing perfect pile fixation

01:46 The human machine interface HMI is equipped with 3 main screens: Home, Explorer and Setting

02:01 In-house developed electronics and Quad drives, integrated in water cooled cabinets, assures optimal control of all servomotor motions in combination with several detections (broken end detection, tight end detection)

VDW Academy - TuftFX L

The TuftFX L, equipped with the Myriad attachment, is designed to produce full density, multi-coloured loop pile carpet in high output.

This 3-minute video shows the main features of the TuftFX L:

00:17 The Myriad attachment with its compact water-cooled servomotor modules. This pattern attachment can be built up on both sides of the machine, providing easy access to the yarns coming from the creel.

00:36 Servo controlled Sliding Needlebar (SNB)

01:59 In-house developed servomotor technology

02:08 Vandewiele electronics and drives (02:13 Quad drives)

02:18 For increased user-friendliness a new Human Machine Interface or HMI was developed with 3 touch screen controlled main screens: Home, Explorer and Settings

02:38 Designs are processed by our own Tuftlink software
