Double shuttle loom

Category : Textile


Nabakumar Singh


‘Double shuttle loom’ works on the same principle as that of any other standard manual shuttle loom but is wider with the provision for two sets of warp rolls resulting in double output in a given time.

  • In the double shuttle loom, there is a common horse shoe in the middle.
  • When the first shuttle strikes from one end, the middle horse-shoe strikes the second shuttle in the same direction.
  • Therefore, both the shuttles move in the same direction simultaneously and the middle horse–shoe strikes one shuttle at a time.
  • The double shuttle loom is equipped with many ball bearings.
  • Therefore weaving on the double shuttle loom has become easier than any other single shuttle loom.
