How Rapier Loom Can Help Textile Industry?


To manufacture with the necessary precision, you will need proper yarns first, and for your right yarn, you will need the right type of bobbin machine or any twisting machine.

Power loom is a very widely used machine in the various textile production process and can speed up the weft that makes the head of a rapier loom and the account of rapier tape for more than 50% of the total machine consumption.

Unlike a regular loom, a rapier loom has no shuttle to fill yarn. Therefore, such a rapier weaving machine will be a certain shuttleless weaving loom, which carries the weft yarn via the warp shed by finger-like carriers to its other side of your loom. All those finger-like carriers present in your rapier loom machine are known as rapiers.

There are 2 kinds of rapier loom machines available. In the first one – there will be a long rapier that will reach across the width section of the loom and carries your weft to some other side. In the next type – there are 2 rapiers 1 on each side.

The working of one rapier will be to carry your pick halfway via the shed and then meet the other rapier, which carries the pick of the other half of the loom. Your rapier appears like any steel tape or any rod and will be connected with the control system of your rapier machine.

The rapier will move across the width of your fabric carrying your weft yarn and then come back to the original place by leaving the choice in its place. The rapier loom machine is the best, especially when it is used for yarn-dyed fabrics, linen, silk, wool, towel quilt, and more.

Why rapier machines are considered the right machine for Jacquard fabric?

Unlike any dyed or printed fabric, the patterns and colours are incorporated into the weaving of your jacquard fabric. And due to such intricacy involved in this jacquard weave, it is considered the most luxurious fabric. Because of the invention of this machine looms, now it has become much more affordable.

Any brocade fabric is generally woven through this jacquard attachment, and it never lost the appeal for those who love fashion. Generally, it is heavier than any other fabric and is mostly used in upholstery, fashion, and draperies. During the olden days, brocade was actually made in certain flawlessly raised multi-coloured rich patterns. Usually, it used to be on a certain satin or twill background.

Now you must know that rapier jacquard machines may use up to twelve colours of weft present in them. They can also offer 300 picks/cm, thus making it a finely woven fabric. For any wider width of your fabric rapier jacquard machines will be great and can offer up to 360 cms.

There are a few companies that offer the most advanced type of Electronic Rapier Jacquard Loom, which is perfectly integrated along with one control panel for providing convenience and preciseness during operation.
