Our TS-1800 is a fully waterless, digital thread and yarn dyeing system that suits a wide range of applications. With the TS-1800, you can expertly dye your own thread and yarn, which frees you from the limitations of today’s traditional supply chain and helps you create a more sustainable future.

Simple operating system and touch screen control

With its super simple operating system software, and industrial-grade touch screen and control panel, the TS-1800 is ready for a dye run with just a few clicks.

Smart job management and improved productivity

The system can dye even when the operator is defining new jobs. Each job that is created is automatically saved in the system’s archive and can be loaded at any time.

Digital color selection

Literally thousands of colors to choose from using the TS-1800’s digital interface. You can also create your own unique colors by selecting RGB or LAB values.

Automatic feed and tension control

The TS-1800 is equipped with an automatic feed and tension control system. The operator does not need to learn how to control the tension or manage complicated thread or yarn handling.

Integrated winder

The TS-1800’s winder unit winds the thread or yarn onto a standard king spool. When a spool is completed, it can easily be removed from the thread dyeing machine and mounted on any type of industrial or commercial sewing, knitting or embroidery machine.
