Rationale
Weaving is one of the methods of fabric productions. The other methods are knitting, lace making, felting, and braiding or plaiting. In weaving two distinct sets of yarns or threads are interlaced at right angles in various patterns to form a fabric or cloth of numerous designs. The longitudinal threads are called the warp and the lateral threads are the weft or filling. There is continuous pressure on industries to reduce cost, use automations, and increase quality with variety and designs as early as possible. Therefore, as a textile technologist, the knowledge of weaving process, power looms, and weaving preparatory processes and machines is very essential. In this course, the students are exposed to knowledge of weaving process, power looms, its preparatory processes and production calculations.
