Fluid jet loom
There are two kinds of fluid-jet looms, one employing a jet of air, the other a water jet, to propel a measured length of weft through the shed. The significance of this is that nothing solid is passed into the shed other than the weft, which eliminates the difficulties normally associated with checking and warp protection and reduces the noise to an acceptable level. The machines can attain great weaving speed and output. See also Dummy shuttle loom, Rapier looms and loom in the denim dictionary.
