What is the difference between Axminster and Wilton carpets?
Wilton carpet, like Axminster™ carpet, is woven. However the difference between the two methods is the way in which the carpet is woven. Whereas the Axminster™ yarn is cut into tufts and then held in place by the weft, the Wilton carpet yarn is a continuous strand woven all the way through.
Carpet construction types. Traditional woven carpets such as Axminster and Wilton have been manufactured for over 200 years. The looms on which the carpets are woven have altered considerably over the years but the construction principle of interlocking the pile yarns with backing yarns is little changed.
As a result of its natural resilience, wool-rich Axminster carpets provide added benefits such as long-term appearance retention, excellent recovery from compression and by absorbing harmful pollutants such as Nitrogen Dioxide and Sulphur Dioxide contributes towards improved air quality.
Axminster carpet weaving method is to use a large variety of colour patterns yarn carpet of the most important system, it is usually used to produce wide or narrow commercial carpet. Although Axminster equipment can also be used to produce plain carpet, but this use than tufting, weaving method Wilton and stick down low efficiency.
Axminster weaving equipment, there are two main forms: clip – jacquard looms and bobbins – clip-type loom. Old bobbin Axminster looms are still used in industry, but because of low yields are no longer manufactured.
Axminster carpet weaving method as the manufacturing process has the following advantages:
Colors and designs is almost unlimited
Effective pile high proportion of (non-buried pile yarn)
Structure can produce a variety of carpet, but only carpeting
Produce a variety of textures, patterns, patterns and colours of carpet for almost all kinds of different fineness and twist pile yarn
Mechanism is simple, easy maintenance
Able to quickly adjust the quality of carpet
The back end with high-quality
Very suitable for the production of wool carpet
Clip – jacquard looms can produce up to 8-12 colours of carpeting, and the production process rather short, jacquard pattern by replacing the board can change fairly quickly carpet design patterns (if fitted with electronic jacquard machine, the change will be faster). If the creel with more colours than the design used, the colour bit partial to change soon. Clip-type weaving method appears Ake Cummings waste pile yarn at least, can produce smooth carpet surface.
Axminster weaving through the pile density is based on density and weft density to express. The secret is the loom along the width direction per unit length of the U-shaped velvet clusters. The weft is the carpet along the length of the number of clusters per unit length of velvet. Bobbin – Clip looms usually by close to 7 or 8 (for the U-per-inch velvet number of clusters) or 23.6,27.6 or 31.6 (within 10cm of each said U-velvet number of clusters). For commercial carpet, using the typical weft per inch down from 7 to l2 cluster (or down every 10cm 27 到 48 clusters).
