The rapier loom is the most commonly used type of shuttle-less weaving machinery. Its primary features include fast weaving speed, high level of automation, and maximum efficiency. In addition to the said characteristics which are inherited from previous shuttle-less weaving machine designs, the rapier loom also has its own advantage over them. For instance, its positive weft insertion mechanism is suitable for weaving a variety of fiber yarns. Moreover, the unique weft color selection system allows for a maximum of 16 colors of filing picks to be woven. With all those matchless features available at a low price, the loom has seen wide use in weaving dyed yarn, towel, silk weave, wool fabric, and bast fabric. It also provides ideal solutions for small batch production of fancy cloths.
