TMS manufacture and supply a complete range of tufting machine spare parts for most makes and models and can quite often ship directly from our wide range of stock.
The TMS Excel Sport offers new levels of performance in a totally versatile machine, performance previously attainable only by specialised single purpose machinery. The keynotes are a totally new and unique needlestroke mechanism for ultimate balance and performance, in conjunction with increased frame strength and rigidity. The evolution of the Excel Sport and progressive refinements are designed to set the standards of tufting performance.
The uniquely designed TMS High Speed Needlestroke Mechanism negates the use of balance weights thus providing the benefits of reduced vibration and increased speed. There is 1 module per 2 pushrods, the needlestroke HV (high velocity) chain provides the smoothness of a belt drive, with compactness, economy and durability of a chain drive, capable of transmitting 30 Kw. In product environment test, it is possible to change the needlestroke on a 5m machine in under15 minutes. This unique system allows customers to produce up to 100mm pile height.
