Carpet weaving

ALPHA 500 XHDC

The ALPHA 500 XHDC is the ideal machine for weavers who want to enthrall their customers with carpets that boast high density, a perfect surface, and extraordinary designs. The machinery equipment supports weaving carpets showing reed densities up to 1,400 reed dents/m and a density per sqm of up to 4 million points.
