In addition to sewing thread programs, the SMI division produces and markets finished sewing threads under the TechniThread® brand. For the bedding and mattress industry, this continuous filament thread has knotless and sliceless characteristics that perform well under higher quilting speeds to create tighter quilt patterns and produce thicker build-ups. It all adds up to better sewability and breaking strength, as well as faster production, less downtime and a higher quality end product.
