Galil Motion Control, Inc. · 800-377-6329 ·
company called Modern
Techniques is accomplishing just
that with the help of precision
Galil motion controllers.
Modern Techniques is dedicated to
the over-all computerization of carpet
tufting plants, from ordering and inven-
torying yarn, to controlling production
processes and data through beaming,
tufting, finishing and final inventory of
the finished carpet. Unlike other compa-
nies, MTI offers a modular system to
accomplish this. Thus a mill can com-
puterize on a step-by-step basis to fit its
budget. Each component works as a
stand-alone module that can eventually
become part of an entire network.
The Georgia company uses Galil
DMC-1000 series motion controllers in
several combinations of axes, from six to
15 axes per controller, to control the var-
ious processes in the production of the
carpet. It utilizes Galil motion controllers
on two types of carpet tufting machines:
on broad width machines for producing
12- to 15-foot widths of carpet and on
mini broad looms, or sample tufting
machines, for producing samples so that
designers can test and select patterns.
In the past, carpet tufting was a
totally mechanical process, using cams,
belts and pulleys. To change a style of
Galil Controllers Help Modern
Techniques Computerize Carpet
Imagine a carpet mill completely computerized, from creating the patterns
to ordering the yarn to producing the finished carpet. Imagine changing
the design or the depth of the pile, with a few strokes of the computer.
carpet, the operator had to
change all the mechanics, a
time-consuming operation.
Now, the process is computer
driven and styles are changed
The new method saves time,
reduces error and allows many more
styles to be created. Special software
allows the designer to input pile height,
stitch rate, needle bar and color sequence
without changing any mechanics. The
operator inputs are then translated into a
motion path by the computer for the
Galil motion controller to follow.
Galil's electronic gearing and
ECAM modes are particularly impor-
tant in this process. Using the electron-
ic gearing mode, the moving needle
bar (which can contain from 100 to
2000 needles) is geared to the master
encoder on the main shaft of the tuft-
ing machine. This allows yarn place-
ment in the carpet to be varied on the
fly, creating unique patterns.
Designers have found the Galil con-
trollers easy to program and easy to
change. The array feature allows the
designers to save important data such as
yarn feedrate. This allows them to build
generic programs for repeated patterns.
The company is improving its
machines so that they can move a
250-pound load .5 inches in 25 msec
with .001" accuracy (the current speed is
50 msec) and has found that the Galil
motion controllers can easily keep up
with this increased speed.
Modern Techniques is currently the
leading manufacturer that offers a com-
plete, computer-controlled sample tuft-
ing machine. The company also offers
retrofit kits to allow the customer to
computerize an existing machine instead
of buying an entire new machine. Their
equipment is being utilized in fourteen
of the top twenty contract mills.
Modern Techniques is located in
Ringgold, Georgia at 706-965-9065.
Modern Techniques has found Galil motion
controllers to be cost effective and easy to use.

in-line sample machine with 120 roll, 3-pile
height, scroll attachment in place and shown
