Custom Solutions – Carpet Tufting

The carpet and rug manufacturing industry looks set to rise across Europe, including the UK.  And with tufted carpets accounting for approximately 50% of the market (Grand View Research), the custom design drop in cylinder by our partners PHD is perfectly timed.

Following collaboration with a carpet tufting customer to gain insight into their pain points, PHD designed a custom miniature single-acting, spring-return cylinder that increased the operating speed of the machine. Additionally, PHD’s robust design was better able to handle the side load in the application, leading to longer cylinder life.
