Masias offers panel recycling system

Masias Maquinaria SL, a producer of equipment that directly feeds opened fibers into quilting machines, also has developed machinery designed to recycle quilted mattress panels.

Masias’ compact shredder recycles clean scraps resulting from the production of quilted mattress panels, such as sewing selvages, as well as complete, quilted panels composed of ticking, fiber, foam and even fine interlining, according to the company, which has headquarters in Olot, Spain.

The recycled materials can be conveyed through direct feeding lines to quilting machines or vacuum cushion filling lines so that the components can be reused to produce mattress panels or sofa cushions. The new filling can be made exclusively from recycled materials or blended with virgin fibers.
