Starting today, you will be able to select the exact color of thread you need and have it ready for production – immediately on time!

Technology

Twine’s DST is a waterless eco-friendly technology which uses the precise amount of Twine’s TDI ink per thread type, length and weight with virtually no waste.

The process begins once a color is selected by the user. Twine’s proprietary algorithms automatically create a recipe and initiate highly accurate ink mixing of Twine’s 4 basic TDI ink colors (CMYK). Once completed, the thread passes through a treatment chamber and then into the drying unit. The drying unit will then fixate the TDI ink into the thread’s fibers upholding to the highest market quality standards. The last phase of the process is lubrication where lubricant is applied to the thread. The system’s closed loop technology ensures there are no emissions or waste disposed to the environment.

Twine’s DST™ technology eliminates the long, vast and messy conventional bulk dyeing process, and replaces it with a direct, fast, digital in-house system. Once digitally dyed, the thread is ready to be used immediately without any pre or post treatments.

Ink

Twine propriety Digital Ink (TDI™) was developed by Twine’s world class experts and formulated to answer the unique requirements of the DST™ process and can be applied to a wide range of thread and yarn types and thickness. We at Twine understand that every thread is different. Therefore, one of the most important benefits of TDI™ is that no matter which thread you use – new or recycled, raw or white, spun or filament, brand or batch – we can digitally dye it. Another big advantage of Twine TDI™ is the wide range of color gamut, meeting and exceeding your physical analog catalog, while using a very small amount of ink. Green and profitable.
