Modra Technology


An automated yarn creeling system for tufted carpet manufacturers

Introducing the CreelMT: the most significant breakthrough in creels for tufted carpet production in 100 years!

At Modra, we have a passion for engineering and technology. We are always looking to find good solutions to big problems.

Machinery to produce tufted carpets has been available for over 100 years, and great technological advances have been applied to tufting machines in that time.

The creel behind a tufting machine has not fundamentally changed in more than 100 years.  The conventional creel has not kept pace with the advances in tufting machines. For modern tufting machines with yarn control at each needle position, the conventional creel is a compromise. Creels are a bottleneck to the capabilities of modern tufting machines. A new solution is required to reduce labour, reduce waste, reduce changeover time, and allow shorter run sizes.

CreelMT from Modra Technology solves these big problems.

CreelMT is an automated winding, package loading and yarn blow through system. Mobile creels are brought to the off-line yarn loading station. Each yarn location in the mobile creel can be loaded with the required thread-up1 and precision wound2 up to 1000 grams per position3

The mobile creel is moved to the tufting machine and beam spliced into the tufting machine.

While the tufting machine is running, the next set of mobile creels can be prepared. Mobile Creels are standard or sized to suit customer requirements.

  1. Full PC control system with integration to your thread up (A,B,C,D,…) and length data. (CSV, XML, Text or Export from NedGraphics Tuft)
  2. Hysteresis wheel at each spindle means length accuracy of +/- 0.5%
  3. Package Details For winding packages with a max diameter 140 mm (~1000 grams for 2000 denier yarn)

The CreelMT is under patent protection.
