Vandewiele develops, builds, assembles and installs carpet, velvet weaving machines, Jacquard machines, weaving and knitting feeders, motors and drives, tufting machines, extrusion lines, heatset lines, spacedye and finishing machines and lines for carpet and velvet finishing. So the whole range of machines needed to produce Carpets and velvets. Carpet and velvet consist like flat weaves of warp and weft yarns, but have an additional third dimension: the pile yarns. Thanks to this unique weaving technique, our weaving machines can weave high-grade carpets and the finest velvets since more than 140 years, in weaving mills all over the world. During these 140 years, Vandewiele has been growing constantly. Vandewiele brands such as: Van de Wiele, Bonas, Cobble, Superba, IRO-ROJ, Memminger-IRO, Protechna and Bejimac, we share our knowledge and expertise in the broad area of textile technology. 

Carpet has a broad range of applications: sized rugs, wall-to-wall carpet, bath rugs, prayer rugs, ... The Vandewiele textilemachines weave and tuft for all these applications carpets from the most economical to the highest qualities in all pile materials: polypropylene, heat set, BCF, wool, silk ... 
The main applications of velvet are upholstery, apparel and automobile. The Van de Wiele velvet weaving machines exist in an execution for jacquard and plain velvets.

CARPET WEAVING MACHINES: The Rug & Carpet Expert plus RCE+ a new generation of high speed carpet weaving machines

The Rug & Carpet Expert RCE+ is a highly productive face-to-face carpet weaving machine. The ergonomic design guarantees easy access to all the yarns. The insertion of the filling is done by rigid rapiers, guided on air cushions reducing the friction and the heat development. A three-dimensional cam, for an optimal cutting across the full width of the machine, drives the knife of the cutting motion. A powerful parallel reed beat-up produces at high speed a clean back and nice pile aspect. On the RCE+, servomotors can drive the heddle frames for the tight warp and for the slack warp, both programmed from the HDMI. This makes quick change of the weave structure and switch between carpet qualities possible by a few touches on the friendly usable touchscreen.

A compact Jacquard machine with simple selection mechanism without springs, pivot points and pistons allows to obtain, with only one solenoid per harness band, the positions for double and triple rapier carpet weaving. Only one flexible hook is moving making the system not sensitive to dust. As the solenoid is current driven, the selection is independent of temperature, guaranteeing a fault free selection in all conditions. Vandewiele manufactures two, three and four position jacquard machines. The pile yarns are levelled in layers, so the crossing point of the different colours is shifted. This increases considerably the weaving efficiency and produces a clean back with less incorporated pile yarn.

For weaving single rapier weave structures, the rapiers insert alternating a filling in top and bottom carpet. With the rapier switch-off system, only one rapier is inserted per cycle. The system, with a minimum of moving parts and no empty rapier, enters into the shed and increases the weaving efficiency. Alternatively, the filling scissors can be programmed for presenting only one filling per machine revolution. Weaving with three rapiers gives 50% more production than the three shot weave structure on a double rapier carpet machine. The patented three rapier system gives other advantages: incorporated yarns stay stationary giving a clearer carpet back and less incorporated yarns. Van de wiele is the only three rapier weaving machine producer in the world.

Van de Wiele sets new trends with hand look carpets: The Hand look Carpet Expert plus HCE+ is a three rapier weaving machine weaving carpets with back side like hand knotted carpets, this means, without visible warp yarns at the back of the carpet. As this kind of carpets is made in a high reed density (up to 1500 dents/m) and with up to 8 colour frames (or 750 reed/m up to 16 colours), it becomes for an expert hard to see the difference between hand made and machine made carpets.

Cut-loop carpets give a new dimension to the world of carpets: Further developments with the three rapier technique are the Universal Cut Expert plus UCE+ carpet weaving machine. It's the only machine on the market that weaves two identical carpets with cut pile, soft short, long loops and flat weave effects. This kind of carpets with relief is getting more and more popular. Van de Wiele has developed an execution of this machine, the Universal Shaggy Expert plus USE+ carpet weaving machine, for weaving cut-loop carpets with long pile.

Weaving machine for the production of high pile carpets: To cope with a growing demand towards carpets with high pile, Van de Wiele is offering the Shaggy Rug Expert + SRE+ carpet weaving machine. This two rapier weaving machine can weave super shaggy carpets up to 2 x 70mm with the face-to-face weaving technique.

The Master in Axminster MAX+ for colourful carpets: The Master in Axminster MAX+ is the first machine in history completely designed and developed for weaving Axminster carpets at a high speed. The MAX+ has a stable basic machine with a robust ground frame. The pile yarn presentation is done through a non-reset system with individual stepper motors, giving the possibility to work with up to 16 colors. The knife bit carriers are driven by a servomotor programmed for a quick motion during cutting and with a slow return motion to reduce the temperature. It is possible to weave with different tuft lengths. The new patented gripper is made in one piece, without pivot point and without bearings. This lightweight gripper is suitable for gripping thick and thin yarns, even mixed in the same carpet . Van de Wiele has already sold the MAX+ in several countries like Belgium, Poland, Egypt, Malaysia, China, ...

Advanced Wire Expert + AWE+: For high quality contract carpets, the Advanced Wire Expert + AWE+ as well as the Carpet Loop weaving machine can be used.

Texconnect: The Van de Wiele Texconnect software has been further developed for processing, networking and planning. A lot of new modules are available: planning, real time information, efficiencies, intranet,...

VELVET WEAVING MACHINES: The VSI face-to-face velvet weaving machine for high quality velvet at high speed

The VSI32 produce the most versatile Italian velvet fabric. In this velvet, also called free design velvet, the pile as well the ground yarns are controlled by the multi hook electronic jacquard machine especially developed for face-to-face velvet. This gives the possibility to create fantastic, modern as well as classic velvets with ground, pile as well as filling effects using a filling selector. The VSI32 weaves also a broad range of velvets for upholstery, automotive, dress, bus and coach velvets... 

An adapted execution is weaving lightweight carpets and prayer rugs.

The VSI22 model is producing plain face-to-face velvet for upholstery, automotive, dress and technical fabrics. Depending of the application the machine is equipped with one, two or three pile beams and pile deliveries driven by servodrive motors. Servo driven heddle frames build in a way to have a stable weaving machine, assures a perfect velvet quality.

TETCHNICAL TEXTILES: The VSI42 is a special execution for technical fabrics such as distance fabrics, paintbrushes, …

JACQUARD MACHINES: "Bonas" the Vandewiele Jacquard brand is not only the inventor  but is also the world leader in the design and manufacturing of Electronic Jacquards.

ACCESSORIES FOR WEAVING: IRO and ROJ brands of Vandewiele are the worlds leading producers of yarn feeding equipment to the textile industry.


ACCESSORIES FOR KNITTING: The Memminger-IRO brand of Vandewiele is the market leader in processing technology for yarn feeding, control systems, knitting feeder manufacturing and lubrication technology for knitting machines.


FINISHING MACHINES: Vandewiele also manufacturers finishing machines and finishing lines for the carpet and velvet industry. Bejimac and Titan are very well known worldwide within the carpet and velvet weaving industry.

DRIVES: More and more, electronics are integrated into the weaving looms. With the new AROS electronic shedding motion, dobbies and cam discs belong to the past. The iShed (intelligent shedding) gives you energy savings due to the optimised energy consumption through inertia recovery: Electronic pick finding is done independent from the loom; Variable shed opening is fully flexible; All different patterns can be woven; Full electronic cam law transfer; Variable crossing position for each held frame

The whole system is very compact, user friendly and requires a limited maintenance. This new iShed will give a lot of opportunities for the users and results in better efficiency, higher productivity and less power consumption.


QUALITY ASSURANCE FOR TEXTILES: Opto-electronic thread control systems for the textile industry. Surveillance devices for circular knitting machines; digital needle sensor
