Our edge comes from customer-led innovation.

One of Coats guiding principles is customer-led innovation. Together, we work hand-in-hand with our customers to develop new products and improve the manufacturing processes. This is done in our CTC Center, a hub dedicated to R&D, keeping us on the forefront of technology, so we can start fixing tomorrow’s problems today.

Thread may be small, but to us, it is everything.

Automatic bobbin detection

Automatic Bobbin Detection brings proprietary digital technology into the manufacturing space. While traditional practices include people handling the sorting process, the Automatic Bobbin Detection system is managed by computer software which eliminates subjectivity and ensures bobbins are consistently uniform in size and quality. In just two minutes or less, Coats can bring an additional layer of safety to your final product.

Detectable bobbin cores

Airbags enhance the safety of drivers and passengers in a vehicle. Coats understands the pressure to meet these needs and has designed our thread to not only increase the integrity of an airbag when sewn-in, but also ensure waste is kept separate. By working metal into the sides of bobbin cores, a product can be passed through a metal detector to confirm it does not include waste. A customer-led innovation that will give you peace of mind and enhance the safety of your final product.

Assurance of quality with a pop of colour.

Assurance of quality with a pop of colour.

A product must pass through many facets of the manufacturing process before being considered final, or ready to be sold. Coats knows that one of the most important elements is in Quality Assurance (QA), where products are tested to ensure they meet standard requirements. Tracer Thread assists with this process, dyed in bright colors it enables the naked the eye to check stitch patterns and sort good products from those that are defective. Being able to see the seam in this way increases your quality control and the safety of your final product.

Our unique bonding process delivers a more superior automotive thread. By combining a long manufacturing process into one machine we are able to reduce the number of heat processes and provide you with an automotive thread that has greater retained strength, less probability of strength variation, and a better overall sewability.
