Stäubli ALPHA 500 series of Schönherr weaving machines allows weaving carpets with a pile height of less than 3mm. Thus, they are an ideal solution for weavers striving for economical production of low-pile carpets such as lightweight carpeting, easy foldable carpets, or vintage-look rugs. Using options like the unique binding technology “Multi Weft Effect Duo”, designers can create carpets with the realistic appearance of unevenly worn spots.
