Langenthal - Lantal has developed a digital technology for dyeing yarns used in aircraft carpets. This makes the production of aircraft carpets faster and more sustainable. In addition, the technology facilitates the production of lightweight carpets as well.

Lantal is launching aircraft carpets dyed using digital technology on the market. Lantal has spent five years on the development of its Digital Deep Dyeing technology, further details of which can be found in a press release issued by the international company from Langenthal in the canton of Bern. “This is a real breakthrough moment for Lantal and we are thrilled to be able to offer this revolutionary technology to our airline customers around the world”, as CEO Urs Rickenbacher comments in the press release.
