Twine Solutions will be unveiling world’s first digital thread dyeing system at ITMA show from June 20-26, 2019 in Barcelona, Spain. The system digitally dyes raw and off-the-shelf white thread for a variety of industry sectors: sewing, knitting and embroidery.
The dyed threads can be used for endless applications in apparel, activewear, shoes, home decor, etc.
Twine will be exhibiting at Hall 3, Stand C105, where visitors will be able to see the systems digitally dyeing various thread types, including Coats thread, the company said in a press release. The strategic partnership between Twine and Coats was announced last November and will include future capabilities of Twine’s system, to feature inbuilt colour software, integrated with Coats ColourStitch. Coats will also be included in Twine’s booth at ITMA.
At the show, Twine will also showcase its digital colour matching mobile application. The SnapMatch application simply captures an image of a sample using a mobile device and Twine’s proprietary algorithms analyse the colour immediately and accurately. The user then sends the captured colour to the TS-1800 system for immediate thread dyeing in the desired colour. The entire solution is the world’s first digital dye-to-match process.
Twine’s products create a virtual inventory, with any colour and any length needed, reducing stock management, inventory and deadstock costs. Twine’s sustainable digital waterless thread dyeing process saves 70 litres of clean water per 1 kg of dyed thread. The process also reduces waste and air emission. In many of the industry sectors today up to 50 per cent of dyed thread is disposed of before even being used. Twine’s system dyes exactly the amount needed in a highly sustainable process.
“Our Twine Digital Thread Dyeing system unleashes the power of thread, at the touch of a button. The fast paced digital transformation of the textile industry is challenging both for production and its environmental impact. We are excited to bring solutions that will have much needed and crucial economic, social and sustainability benefits,” said Alon Moshe, Twine CEO and co-founder.
