The Hollow Needle Mtuft is a single needle tufting machine for the production of broadloom carpets and rugs. Up to 4 yarns can be tufted through one hollow needle. Gauge, stitch rate, pile height and needle shift are all controlled electronically.
Needle shift patterns can be "drawn" onto the touch screen enabling the creation of unique zig-zag patterned product. The machine produces loop pile only. A broadloom shear can then be used to create tip shear and cut-loop effects.
