After a review of the tufting industry’s development, and a brief introduction to available systems for producing patterned tufted carpets, the principle of ICN (Individually Controlled Needle) and the related advanced tufting technology colortec are presented. Finally, colortec machine, Axminster weaving machine, and Wilton loom are compared. It is believed that the Cobble colortec machine is a significant jump forward in the tufted carpets industry as it now allows access to all major carpet markets in a competitive fashion.
