Carpet Rightening Machine

Traditional methods of rug-rightening used nails and boards in order to fix any dimensional deformation in the carpet. But the use of these methods causes undesirable defects, like tearing the foundation (warp and weft) or leaving rust marks from nails on the carpet, causing irreparable damage, particularly to finely woven rugs.

With the invention of our rightening-machine, which works as a press for mechanical stretching, it is possible to restore the rug to its desired dimensions with the best results. Compared to traditional methods, this new machine is more precise, faster and easier to use. It is also easy to transport and install.

Nowadays these machines are used in most of the Iranian cities known for carpet making. A large number of them have also been exported abroad to counties like Germany, Italy, Denmark, Belgium, Japan, Australia, Brazil, Oman, Lebanon, the Emirates, etc.

Rightening is a post-weaving operation performed on rugs to remove their dimensional deformities. Today all high and medium knot-density carpets undergo rightening by the means of these rightening machine. Traditional methods, using nails and hinges, now used only for low knot-density rugs and Gilims, are in the process of being phased out.

The Method of Machine Rightening

First Step: Mounting the Carpet

The carpet is mounted upside down on the machine with one side firmly held in the clamps. Evenly spaced holes 10 cms apart; make the clamps adjustable for mounting different sizes with ease.

Second Step: Moistening and stretching

After the carpet is mounted, the carpet is gradually stretched by turning the Stretching Wheel. Water or softener is sprayed  on narrower portions of the carpet to loosen the warps and wefts and to help stretch the carpet. Direct heat is then applied from under the carpet to dry up the moisture.

The process is repeated several times until the correct dimensions of the carpet are restored.

Third Step: Unmounting the carpet

The carpet is unmounted by turning the Control Wheel in the counterclockwise direction until it is completely loosened.

Four Step:

After unmounting, the press marks on the back of the carpet are removed by applying moisturizer followed by drying.
