Merrow's ActiveSeam tech better for medical textiles
23
May '17
ActiveSeam, Merrow's new technology, is all set to revolutionise medical and compression garment manufacturing by replacing the traditional flatlock seam with a flatter, stronger stitch. ActiveSeam is almost undetectable when applied next to skin. With more stretch into the seam, the garment can be designed to fit better without restricting athletic movement.

The new Activeseam for Compression is to be introduced in new product by a global medical device company in late 2017 or early 2018, leveraging Merrow's new MB-4DFO 2.5 series industrial sewing machine - now available through regional distribution in 87 countries.

ActiveSeam is the world's first branded stitch, bringing a distinctive value to retail products.

With a flat profile and twice the stretch built into the seam, ActiveSeam garments are extraordinarily comfortable and do not restrict movement. ActiveSeam replaces Flatlock with a stronger, more elastic, and infinitely more attractive seam construction that is ideal for specialised applications like medical compression garments.

When compared to a six-thread flatlock seam with identical thread, fabric, and SPI, Merrow ActiveSeam two and three-thread seams proved to be more than 30 per cent stronger and had the ability to stretch (linear travel) 100 per cent further.

ActiveSeam is uniquely suited for any application that entails a garment's seams be pressed against skin because of its extremely flat profile, flexibility, and unparalleled comfort. This is great news for anyone who utilises compression wear, particularly compression garments or athletic apparel, as ActiveSeam substantially increases pliability and improves overall fit. (SV)
