Projectile Loom || Different Parts Of A Projectile Weaving Machine

Projectile Loom

A projectile loom is a shuttleless loom. Chiefly, it uses widely in fabric production. In this projectile loom, the filling of yarn is done by using a small metal device resembling a bullet in appearance with a clamp for gripping the yarn at one end, which is then propelled into and through the shed. Besides, In this projectile loom machine, the weft insertion is carried out by a small clamp projectile, which number depends on the weaving fabric width and which with their grippers take out the weft yarn from big cross-wound bobbins and insert it into the shed and always in the same direction. The projectile loom has a high-speed production than the rapier loom.

As I have noted, the projectile weaving machine was invented in 1924 and in 1953 it was introduced to the market. Generally, the weft insertion system is the key feature of this machine. To illustrate, a bullet-like shuttle 90 mm long and weighing about 40 gm, technically named a gripper projectile is used here to insert the weft thread into the warp threads which gets motion by a metal torsion rod.

Different Parts Of A Projectile Weaving Machine:

All in all, a projectile loom is consist of different parts that facilitate the weaving process. Firstly, to make smooth the process one should know about the different parts of the projectile weaving machine. Therefore, I have mentioned the different parts of the projectile loom machine. They are-

  1. Torsion bar, A
  2. Picking shaft, B
  3. Picking lever, C
  4. Picking shoe, D
  5. Picking shaft lever, E
  6. Toggle plates, F
  7. Picking cam, I
  8. Oil break, L

From the figure, we can find out the different parts of a projectile weaving machine as shown above. Where they consist:
A = Torsion Bar
B = Picking Shaft
C = Picking Lever
D = Picking Shoe
E = Picking Shaft Lever
F = Toggle Plate
G = Antifriction Bowl
H = Link
I = Picking Cam
J = Shaft
K = Bevel Wheels
L = Oil Brake
P = Projectile
R = Projectile Guide

Additionally. an engineer must have knowledge about the functions of different parts of the projectile loom. However, I will write about the working mechanism of the projectile loom next.

So, buy a projectile loom and set for getting higher production. Lastly, different weaving machine manufacturers made projectile looms machines to fulfill the present demand for projectile looms.
