Since Zima Textile established the ﬁrst continuous dyeing range for carpets in 1966, we have delivered more than 180 ranges to our customers world-wide. Continuous dyeing was the basis for an increased growth of the carpet industry due to higher productivity and cost reduction of up to 75%. The innovation began with application systems, accompanied with improved dyes and chemicals. The ﬁrst ranges were for solid shade only, followed by multicolor and print dye ranges, which utilized new types of applicators. We have delivered ranges for solid shade, multicolor, printed, combination print and solid, and carpet tiles for nylon, polyester and wool ﬁbers.
Our latest innovation enables our customers to reduce inventory by millions of dollars, minimize waste, and shorten the cycle time from order to delivery. Conventional dye, which is made in tanks, is a slow and time-consuming process. Our Instacolor system, in combination with our quick change applicators, now allows our customers to “dye to order”. Our customers are now dyeing over 200 individual orders in 24 hours. We look forward to showing you how to implement this new technology.
