Automatic machines to apply pronged nailheads → Automatic machines to apply pronged nailheads on a wide variety of materials. Accuracy and speed are the main characteristics.


Buckaram → Buckram is a stiff cloth, made of cotton, and still occasionally linen, which is used to cover and protect books. Buckram can also be used to stiffen clothes. Modern buckrams have been stiffened by soaking in a substance, usually now pyroxylin, to fill the gaps between the fibres. In the Middle Ages, “bokeram” was fine cotton cloth, no stiff. The etymology of the term is uncertain; the commonly mentioned derivation from Bokhara is, according to the Oxford English Dictionary, uncertain.


Cambric → or batiste, one of the finest and most dense kinds of cloth, is a lightweight plain-weave cloth, originally from the French commune of Cambrai, woven in greige, then bleached, piece-dyed and often glazed or calendered. Initially it was made of linen; later, the term came to be applied to cotton fabrics aas well. Cambric is used for linens, shirtings, handkerchieves and as fabric for lace and needlework.


Clothing → Clothing is fiber and textile material wom on the body. The earing of clothing is a feature of nearly all humuan societies. The amount and type of clothing worn is dependent on physical stature, gender, as well as social and geographic considerations. Physically, clothing serves many purposes: it can serve as protection from weather, and can enhance safety during hazardous activities such as hiking and cooking. It protects the wearer from rough surfaces, rash-causing plants, insect bites, splinters, thorns and prickles by providing a barrier between the skin and the environment. Clothes can insulate against cold or hot conditions. Further, they can provide a hygienic barrier, keeping infectious and toxic materials away from the body. Clothing also provides protection from harmful UV radiation.


Corduroy → Corduroy is a textile composed of twisted fibers that, when woven, lie parallel (similar to twill) to one another to form the cloth’s distinct pattern, a “cord”. Modern corduroy is most commonly composed of thfted cords, sometimes exhibiting a channel (bare to the base fabric) between the tufts. Corduroy is, in essence, a ridged form of velvet. The fabric looks as if it is made from multiple cords laid parallel to each other and then stitched together. The interpretation of the word as corde du roi is a folk etymology.


Direct rhinestone fixing machine → This machine is used to aplly rhinestones directly on a wide variety of materials with ultrasonic welding and a hot nozzle.


Embroidery → Embroidery is the process of decorating fabric or other materials with needle and thread or yarn. Embroidery may also incorporate other materials such as metal strips, pearls, beads, quills, and sequins. Embroidery is most often used on caps, hats, coats, blankets, dress shirts, denim, stockings, and golf shirts. Embroidery is available with a wide variety of thread or yarn color.


Embossing → Sheet metal embossing is a process for producing raised or sunken designs or relief in sheet metal. This process can be made by means of matched male and female roller dies, or by passing sheet or a strip of metal between rolls of the desired pattern. It is often combined with Foil Stamping to create a shiny, 3D effect.


Engraving → Engraving is the practice of incising a design onto a hard, usually flat surface, by cutting grooves into it. The result may be a decorated object in itself, as when silver, gold, steel, or glass are engraved, or may provide an intaglio printing plate, of copper or another metal, for printing images on paper as prints or illustrations; the images are also called engravings.


Heat Press → A heat press is a machine engineered to imprint a design or graphic on a substrate, such as a t-shirt, with the application of heat and pressure for a preset period of time. While heat presses are often used to apply designs to fabrics, they can also be used to imprint designs on mugs, plates, jigsaw puzzles, and other products.


Hot Fix Rhinestones → Hot fix rhinestones, also called heat transfer rhinestones, are mainly used for apparel. The flat bottom of the stone has a glue backing and when heated melts onto the surface of the clothing. These can be adhered using a regular iron, however, it is recommended to use a heat press, as they are able to reach higher temperatures (standard transfers require temperatures of upto 180-200ºC, which regular irons are not capable of) while applying heavy pressures resulting in a more professional standard quality.


Machine → A machine is a tool containing one or more parts that uses energy to perform an intended action. Machines are usually powered by mechanical, chemical, thermal, or electric means, and are often motorized. Historically, a power tool also required moving parts to classify as a machine. However, the advent of electronics has led to the development of power tools without moving parts that are considered machines. A simple machine is a device that simply transforms the direction or magnitude of a force, but a large number of more complex machines exist.


Motif In the textile arts, a motif (also called a block or square) is a smaller element in a much larger work. In knitting and crochet, motifs are made one at a time and joined together to create larger work such as Afghan blankets or shawls. A good example of a motif is the granny square. Motifs may be varied or rotated for contrast and variety, or to create new shapes, as with quilt blocks in quilts and quilting. Contrast with motif-less crazy quilting.


Rhinestone A rhinestone, paste or diamante is a diamond simulant made from rock crystal, glass or acrylic. Originally, rhinestones are rock crystals gathered from the river Rhine, hence the name, although some were also found in areas like the Alps. The availability was greatly increased in the 18th century when the Alsatian jeeller Georg Friedrich Strass had the idea to imitate diamonds by coating the lower side of glass with metal powder. Hence, rhinestones are called strass in many European Languages.


Rhinestone Sizes → Rhinestones are sized by using the term “ss”, or stone size, followed by a number to indicate size (e.g. SS8 is equivalent to 2.3 mm, SS10 is 2.8mm). SS is more commonly used for apparel means, while PP (or pearl plate) is used for jewelry.


Roll to Sheet Cutter → A roll to sheet cutter is a machine that cuts rolls in to sheets with a specified length. It can be use in transfer paper, pvc, paper, embroidery backing, etc.


StrassBox → A StrassBox is an automatic rhinestone and rhinestud transfer machine. This rhinestone transfer machine can be used in the customization industry or at an industrial level. Features Automatic machine for rhinestone transfer production. The vaccum pump eliminates the use of compressor. 4 sizes or 4 colors in the same drawing 200 rhinestones per minute from 2mm(ss6) until 5mm(ss20) Maximum working field: 320x500mm Simple, compact and low cost for industry or customization reliable and low cost maintenance.


Ultrasonic welding → Ultrasonic welding is an industrial technique whereby high-frequency ultrasonic acoustic vibrations are locally applied to workpieces being held together under pressure to create a solid-state weld. It is commonly used for plastics, and especially for joining dissimilar materials. In ultrasonic welding, there are no connective bolts, nails, soldering materials, or adhesives necessary to bind the materials together.


Vacuum pump → A vacuum pump is a device that creates vacuum. Th first vacuum pump was invented in 1650 by Otto Von Guericke, and was proceded by the suction pump, which dates to antiquity.

In Gemfix machines the use of the vacuum pump eliminates the need for air compressor, making the machines more reliable, less noisier, more economical and without maintenance.
