Broken Twills

fabric weaving A broken twill weave composed of vertical sections which are alternately right hand and left hand in direction. In Broken Twills, twills are constructed by breaking the continuity of any continuous twill weave. They are formed by reversing the pattern part way through the repeat. The Break can be achieved in different ways.

Non-Woven Fabrics

fabric Nonwovens do not depend on the interlacing of yarn for internal cohesion. Intrinsically they have neither an organized geometrical structure. They are essentially the result of the relationship between one single fibre and another. This provides nonwoven fabrics with characteristics of their own, with new or better properties (absorption, filtration) and therefore opens them up to other applications.

Transposed Twills

fabric The diagonal effect is broken by transposition of the original order of the threads are called Transposed Twills

Weaving Machines

fabric weaving The new shuttle-less machines are simply called ?weaving machines?, this term implying looms working without shuttle.

Advances in Weaving Technologies

fabric weaving The emphasis on productivity and quality has developed the weaving technology very much and as a result the working hours required to weave fabric from loom have been reduced from about 20 to 0.25 during the last 125 years, and in the last 50 years there has been a reduction of 95% in operative hours per standard unit produced.

Fancy entwining and Curved Twill

fabric weaving Fancy entwining twill effects are obtained by omitting one or more twill lines from each section and continuing the remaining twill lines of each section until they meet these of the other section. By this it means that two blank spaces are made in the weave, in which other weaves may be inserted. Curved twills are those in which the twill lines have a wavy, or curved, nature instead of being perfectly straight as in an ordinary twill weave. There are two methods of constructing these weaves,

Fancy Twills

fabric weaving The fancy twill is formed by placing small spots between the main lines of twill. The first end of the weave should be a continuation of the last end and the first pick should be a continuation of the last pick, so that the weave will continue perfectly when repeated in either direction.

Rapier Weaving Machines

fabric weaving Rapier weaving machine delivers excellent fabric quality at the right price. Its flexibility, high level of user friendliness and versatility make it an ideal means of production for weavers of fabrics. It is a shuttle less weaving loom in which the filling yarn is carried through the shed of warp yarns to the other side of the loom by finger like carriers called rapiers. These machines are used for weaving textile articles such as shirting, dress material, furnishing.

Projectile Weaving Machines

fabric weaving The projectile weaving machine made its appearance in the market at the beginning of the 50?s and is today still used in the whole world. In this weaving machine the weft insertion is carried out by small clamp projectiles, which number depends on the weaving width and which with their grippers take out the weft yarn from big cross-wound bobbins and insert it into the shed always in the same direction.

Diamond and Diagonal Weaves

fabric weaving Diagonal weave are basically type of twill weaves confined to bold twills running at angles greater than 45°, although often regular 45° twills are spoken of as diagonals; regular diagonals are generally formed by combining two regular 45° twills in their picks or ends.Diamond weaves are type of twill weave which forms the shape of a perfect diamond.
