The company has a large portfolio of production equipment comprising of power, auto, shuttleless
and air jet looms.
While the demand for six feet and above width is on the rise, Pakistani entrepreneurs have failed in adding shuttleless
and airjet looms.
A major feature of the Scheme is that to promote indigenous manufacturing of the textile machinery, Interest Reimbursement (IR) on second hand imported shuttleless
looms shall be reduced from 5 percent to 2 percent.
The scheme will cover only automatic shuttleless
looms of 10 years' vintage and with a residual life of minimum 10 years.
The company also has installed 24 shuttleless
looms/weaving machines for manufacture of cotton fabrics.
Its production facilities include ring spindles 380,000 units, open end rotor, twisting spindles (two for one twister) and shuttleless
It is the setting up of shuttleless
, width air jet or rapier looms, capable of producing better quality cloth with a width ranging from 70 to 140 inches.
The weaving capacity of the textiles industry has been static at 10,000 shuttleless
looms for the past many years, which is no match to the quantum jump that the industry has taken in the spinning sector.
21) Examples of some of the technological developments that have made this possible include open-end spinning in yarn production and shuttleless
looms that allow more fabric to be produced than did the previous generation of looms.
Some of the technological developments that make this possible are open-end spinning of yarn and shuttleless
Even in the darkest period there has been proof of ingenious inventiveness, such as for example the Czech innovation of shuttleless
jet looms or the Hungarian practice of converting traditional brick kilns into more energy-efficient equipment.
In weaving technology, the Draper automatic loom, introduced in 1895, was a breakthrough invention whose fundamental design remained the industry standard, unrivaled by any twentieth-century textile innovation until the development of shuttleless
looms after the Second World War.
