TS-1800

Overview

TS-1800 is the world’s first on-demand Digital Thread Dyeing system. The system can dye various types of polyester threads suitable for your product development and production needs. It is designed to be implemented in any production environment and to be operated by anyone.

Technology

The TS-1800 takes white or raw, new or recycled polyester thread and dyes it using Twine TDITM inks (CMYK). The thread is cured during the process ensuring the ink penetrates the fiber. It is finally wound on a spool ready for your immediate use.

Ink

Twine Digital Ink or TDI™ was developed to answer the unique requirements of our digital dyeing process. The system controls the color mixing, so any operator can dye thread without any prior knowledge in ink or color. By using Twine TDITM inks the system can reach a wide-ranging color gamut, exceeding physical catalogs.

Quality & Performance

Our digital dyeing process was developed to deliver excellent quality and performance, no matter what kind of polyester thread we dye. To make sure that the textile certification requirements are met, thread dyed by Twine systems are certified by both the independent OEKO-TEX® institute (STANDARD 100 class I), and by the world-leading quality assurance institute – Intertek.
