Question 70 (Textile Engineering & Fibre Science)

A loom is designed to run at 500 picks per minute. If the fabric width is 2.5m and weft crimp on the loom is 8%, the weft insertion rate in m/min on the loom will be

[Show Answer]

Option C is correct.
Loom picks per min=500

Fabric width=2.5m

Weft crimp%=8%

Weft insertion rate(m/min)=?


Weft insertion rate=Loom picks per min x fabric width x (1+weft crimp%)

Weft insertion rate=500 x 2.5 x (1+8%)

Weft insertion rate=500 x 2.5 x 1.08

Weft insertion rate=1350 m/min
