What does your job entail?
I work on the development of new products. In other words, I accompany customers' s particular requests such as special colors, patterns or new tufting techniques.
What tufting techniques are used at TecSOM?
Concretely, how does it work?
Yarns of the selected spools are driven to the tufting machine via cylinders that descend to a needle bar that mechanically picks them on a support to form rows of loops. Then, the product passes through a coating line in which the yarns are fixed with glue and the textile equipped with a backing.
Is tufted carpet a product in demand?
I’ve been working in R&D department for 20 years now and I never get tired! Tasks are not repetitive, every day is different and I like working at the client’s request, it’s quite interesting.
