Rapier Looms

Rapier Looms conveys a pick of weft from a stationary package, through the shed. It is either a single Rapier or a pair. Blades are either rigid rods or flexible steel tapes, which are straight when in the shed but on withdrawal are wound onto a wheel, to save floor space. Rapier looms are, on the whole, simpler and more versatile than dummy shuttle looms but are slower in weaving speed.
