Hohenadel, Textilwörterbuch, gives "overedge" and "overlock" for beketteln. You can also find some hits on "carpet overedging" or "carpet overedging machines", but carpet edge binding would be the more idiomatic term.

carpet tufting


Explanation:
This is just a guess - I'm happy to be corrected!

Tufting is tidying up the edges of carpets to make rugs or samples. A search on google brings up lots of hits.

My dictionary (Oxford-Duden) also had 'Kettelmaschine' as a 'looping machine'.

Searching Google for 'Bekettelung' comes up with nothing - so it's obviously not a common term!

Hope this helps (if only a little bit!)
