Hammer-IMS and Vandewiele complete structural collaboration for coating quality in carpet production

Bilateral international agreement signed for coating grammage improvement in finishing lines for woven, tufted and needle-punched carpets and artificial grass.

Vandewiele's daughter company Bejimac, specialist in textile finishing machines, established a structural collaboration with Hammer-IMS on quality control of latex coating. This agreement fits in the shared vision of Vandewiele, Bejimac and Hammer-IMS to digitalize the finishing lines for carpets in which accurate, adaptive measurement plays an essential role. Hammer-IMS dedicatedly integrates its non-nuclear technology for measuring coating grammage into Vandewiele-Bejimac finishing lines. Thanks to the real-time measurement and automatic system adaptation of these smart systems, carpet manufacturers maintain highest product quality while reducing the usage and scrap of expensive latex material. The collaboration agreement stipulates that Vandewiele sells and distributes its Hammer-IMS enabled finishing lines. This resellership covers the entire world, except EU, the United Kingdom, Norway and Switzerland.

Inline quality and automatic die control at ThermHex Waben

ThermHex Waben is using a non-nuclear and non-radioactive quality control machine of Hammer-IMS. The three-sensor inline scanning system measures the grammage of thermoplastic composite honeycomb panels and polypropylene honeycomb cores. In addition, the system with high measurement gap automatically adjusts the production's extrusion die to compensate for grammage variations. The innovative Hammer-IMS machine controls the production process better and eliminates human-related errors in the products of ThermHex Waben.
