Sellers Textile Engineers Ltd

Carpet finishing systems

Product knowledge, design flexibility and sound engineering – backed by strong technical service support on an international scale.
These are the qualities that distinguish the carpet and tile finishing machinery range of Sellers Engineers.

All equipment is designed and manufactured, assembled and tested at the company’s works in the UK, and as one of the few remaining European engineering companies to make all of its components in-house, Sellers can draw on approaching a century of accumulated know-how.

Aligned to this is a lead in process control systems which ensure the accurate control, reliability and repeatability of the processing parameters on all of its machines. But just as importantly, flexibility in design allows finishing solutions to be targeted to specific customer and product requirements.

Sellers is committed to providing complete finishing solutions for all carpet, tile and artificial grass products. Its range includes machines for tufted secondary backing, both conventional and powder lamination, Wilton and Axminster products, artificial grass and foam lines, coating lines for bitumen, PVC and PU, and shearing for all carpet products.

Developments have continued across the machinery range to achieve these goals and enable Sellers to offer product solutions for both new lines and existing carpet finishing machinery.

Developments on the coating and drying lines have resulted in improved guiding and product tension control as well as dryer efficiency, reducing heat loss and optimizing energy use. These include a re-design of the fan pressure boxes and impingement nozzles to increase airflow efficiency, modulating gas burners and introducing easy clean, accessible filters.

In addition, the proven dual zone system has been enhanced. giving a temperature differential of up to 80°C between top and bottom zones. Dryers can be heated by either gas, oil, or steam and operation and access have been simplified with controls via touchscreen and PLC.

Sellers Shear

World leaders in this market, the Sellers Shear enables customers to stay competitive, with an improved quality of finish to products being achieved economically and efficiently.

Its features include:

  • A tension control drive system
  • A touchscreen for easy operator control and fault diagnosis
  • Enhanced cleaning
  • Improved bladestock leading to longer blade life
  • Pivoting beds

All of these features have proved successful, and a range of options includes a carpet thickness monitor, seam detection and a zonal metal detector.

Coating and drying

Coating, drying and shearing equipment is available in a wide range of formats to meet customer requirements across the full range of carpet products, including:

  • Woven carpet – both high-capacity and compact plants
  • Tufted secondary-backed carpet, both conventional and powder lamination
  • Artificial grass, latex and PU systems, plus perforator units
  • Bath-mat products, foam and gel-foam, direct spread applicators and embossing systems
  • Carpet tile products, with lines to suit either bitumen, PVC or PU

An extensive range of ancillary equipment is available to provide maximum flexibility to cover product requirements. These are available for both new processing lines and as upgrades to existing lines and include:

  • Cleaning units with full extraction
  • Pivoting guiders
  • Vertical and chest steamers
  • Accumulators with built-in tension control
  • Automated latex mixing systems
  • Full PLC line controls

Fibrebak

Sellers has recently introduced the patent pending Fibrebak pile removal system which has created widespread interest both in the carpet manufacturing sector and in the waste recycling industry. It is suitable for both carpet and tile waste from factories as well as post-consumer waste, and the system separates the re-claimed fibre and backing, offering the economic benefit of minimizing landfill costs and limiting the impact of waste on the environment.

General engineering

Sellers also builds on its engineering expertise to design and manufacture specialized machinery. Recently this has included the supply of customized geotextile processing machinery for major companies, both in the UK and overseas.
