Textile waste recycling machine is a combination of fiber waste cutter, opener and cleaner to achieve efficient processing of used textiles. This recycling line can use the feeder(stocking materials to adapt to line processing) and dust collection device(collet dust during textile waste recycling) for better handling of waste fiber.

Features of this line include efficient clean-up, resource sustainability, waste reduction and improved disposal efficiency, helping to drive the environmental and economic benefits of waste management. It is an unbeatable machine for industries related to fibre recycling and processing.

What machines are used in textile recycling?

Fiber cutting machine

It is used to cut waste textiles into small pieces or fragments. These fragments are easier to handle and process, making them an important starting material for recycled fibres or textile raw materials.


The cotton opener is to break up and disperse fibres, making them looser and more processable. This helps to remove impurities and clean fibres from textiles, improving quality and reusability.

Cleaning machine is to further clean and card the fibres to remove any residual impurities and to make the fibres more uniform and ready for use in remanufacturing textile processes.

How do you recycle textile waste?

Through a series of steps, textile waste is efficiently recycled, reducing resource waste and promoting sustainability and a circular economy. Here are the steps:

Collection and sorting

Firstly, waste textiles are collected and sorted. This may include used clothing, bedding, towels, etc., which are categorized according to type and material.

Inspection and removal of contaminants

Before recycling takes place, the waste materials are inspected to remove possible contaminants such as metals, plastics, zips, etc.

Cutting and shredding

Scrap is fed into a fibre waste cutter, which cuts it into small pieces or fragments to make it easier to handle. These pieces are often referred to as “shredded material”.

Dissolving and cleaning

The shredded material is fed into the opener to be disintegrated and dispersed to remove impurities and clean the fibres.

Carding and finishing

Next, the fibres are fed into a cleaner to be further cleaned, carded and refined to make them more uniform and suitable for remanufacturing.

Textile raw material reuse

The cleaned fibres can be used to remanufacture new textiles, fabrics and products. These fibres can be spun into new threads and become part of textiles again.

Ways to avoid dust during textile waste recycling

In the textile waste recycling process, it is vital to ensure that the production line is equipped with effective dust removal equipment to avoid the generation and spread of dust.

We equip the working area with a dust extraction system that effectively traps and removes dust generated in the working area, prevents it from spreading to other areas, and also helps to reduce dust in the recycling process.
