A shuttle loom uses a shuttle as a weft inserter to introduce weft yarn into a shed. The shuttle weft insertion loom has large vibration, large noise, and large material loss, which is not conducive to the shortcomings of high yield. Therefore, the general shuttle loom is gradually being eliminated.
The shuttleless loom is a new type of loom after the shuttle loom. The shuttleless loom quickly occupied the loom market with its advantages of light weight, low vibration, low noise, fast speed and high efficiency. There are four types of shuttleless looms, namely rapier looms, air jet looms, water jet looms, and shuttle looms.
Rapier loom: use rigid or flexible rapier head to bring clamping and guide weft yarn. It is suitable for the production of yarn-dyed fabrics, double-layer velvet fabrics, terry fabrics and decorative fabrics.
Air-jet loom: The compressed air flow is used to pull the weft yarn and bring the weft yarn through the shed. It is suitable for the production of plain and textured fabrics, fine and high-density fabrics and large batches of fabrics.
Water jet loom: Use water as weft insertion medium to generate frictional traction force on the weft yarn with jet water flow, so that the weft yarn on the fixed bobbin is introduced into the shed. It is suitable for the production of hydrophobic filament chemical fiber fabrics with smooth surfaces.
Slide shuttle loom: Weft yarn is clamped by a small sheet shuttle with clips to project weft insertion. It is suitable for the production of multicolor weft fabrics, fine and thick fabrics and wide fabrics.
