Using Weaving Machines to Mass Produce Textiles
After receiving such a positive response to our previous post about the 3-D weaving machine, we here at BeWeave It sought out to discover more weaving machines. Turns out there's more than one kind!
Take these rapier weaving machines, for example, which were just exhibited at the Techtextil 2015 trade fair in Frankfurt, Germany. Manufactured by Italian company Panter, these machines are designed to easily and efficiently mass-produce specialty fabrics. They are capable of producing anything from fashion textiles to industrial materials. Very cool!
