A review of dyeing methods for carpet is made with the objective that the requirements of a new machine could be formulated. The proposal for a new machine is made in the light of the above review using a pendulum as the basic component. A theory is developed for the motion of the pendulum which is mounted on a rotating disc, and the experimental work built on theory is outlined. A prototype machine based on the rotary pendulum mechanism was used to dye impregnate carpet.
