M2 CARPETS – a unique approach to on-demand carpet printing
We have streamlined our processes to truly leverage every aspect of digital printing. As the only company in the world to do so, we are setting new standards in industrial carpet printing. Our proprietary process-colour printing system is free of the restrictions of conventional spot-colour printing. What does that mean for our clients? We have a commercially viable way of printing textile flooring even in batches as small as 12 m2. This is a first for carpet printing!
Carpets-on-Demand – a new formula in the carpet industry
In an extensive development process we have shaped a perfect imaging process for carpets, utilising digital printing with process colours along with sophisticated digital colour management techniques. It is by design that M2 CARPETS are first to bring a true on-demand model to carpet imaging. The process is digitally controlled and repeatable. It allows us to reproduce results of any given design at any time with the exact same colours – just upon your demand. This is how we extract carpet masterpieces for exclusive contract design inspiring individual moods into each single room.
To achieve this it is essential to control the entire system. Not only do we develop and produce our own process colours and use leading-edge colour management technology to control the preparation of production data for printing. We also print exclusively on raw materials manufactured according to our strictest specifications. Unlike in spot-colour printing where the absolute number of dyes used is identical to the number of reproducible colours, our carpet imaging process mixes up to 16 process colours to deliver an infinite range of possible mixes.
Thanks to all that we’re able to produce photorealistic carpet images in an industrial manufacturing process. In a single production run we can embellish carpets with photographs, extremely colourful graphical patterns with intricate colour gradations and even a creative meld of both elements. The various designs can be printed next to each other or after one another, depending on the size of your carpet.
The fastest turn-around times in the industry and a quantum leap towards resource-friendly carpet imaging
In addition to the above advantages our technology eliminates make-ready times as required for changing colours in spot-colour printing. Significantly shorter turn-around times keep us highly responsive to your needs: we take your tight deadlines in our stride. Yet another competitive edge in the fight for business with commercial contractors! Furthermore, not needing to change colours saves significant amounts of water and produces much less wastewater as a result. M2 CARPETS are raising the bar when it comes to resource-friendly carpet printing.

The highest resolution available in industrial carpet printing today
Another important aspect of our technological edge are two Chromojet 800 digital printing lines for roles 2 m and 4 m wide delivered by carpet printing specialist Zimmer AUSTRIA. They are the only two such printing lines in all of Europe and excel the rest with their exceptional resolution of 76 dpi – no other industrial printing line exceeds 32 dpi at this moment in time, whilst the bulk of carpet printing is still being done with even lower resolutions. As a result we’re rendering images on carpet with up to about 7 to 9 times more dots per square centimetre and deliver unparalleled photorealistic carpet masterpieces.
In virtually any colour
Instead of using printing ink freely available for anyone to buy we leveraged our expertise in dye chemistry to come up with the proprietary M2 CARPETS process colour system. All dye recipes are self-developed and fine tuned to perfectly match the characteristics of carpet manufactured to our exact specifications. Our in-house dye manufacturing process is fully digitally controlled. Not only do we print the broadest range of colours in the industry, we can guarantee required standards of fastness as well.
