Air jet looms have been introduced into China since 1980s, and have gradually become a leading type of shuttleless looms. After nearly 20 years of development, great progress has been made in all aspects of speed, width and adaptability. The domestic air jet looms have been developed through technology introduction, cooperative production and independent development. The varieties and specifications of the looms have developed greatly. It has entered a stable stage. With the automatic breaking weft, frequency conversion and speed regulating technology, electronic warp, electronic coiling, electronic dobby in the jet loom technology, the speed is obvious. With the improvement of weaving scope and stable product quality, it has been able to meet the needs of domestic textile enterprises in weaving different fabrics. The main gap with foreign models is loom speed and width. At present, the speed of the looms in foreign countries is 750 – 1000 r/min, the speed of the domestic jet loom is 600~800 r/min, the width of the loom can only reach 360 cm at present. In addition, we still have a certain gap in the man-machine intelligence. The keyboard shows that there is no information about the similar products of foreign countries. However, compared with the imported looms, there is no big gap between the fabric adaptability, the adaptability of weaving technology and the maintenance operation of the loom, compared with the imported looms. The domestic jet looms can fully meet the needs of the users to weave high quality fabrics.
In recent years, shuttle looms have developed rapidly in both international and domestic, and jet looms are the fastest growing shuttleless looms at present. Jet looms have a series of advantages, such as high speed, high efficiency, low noise, fine fabric style, convenient operation, advanced automation function, leading mechatronics technology and so on. It shows strong competitiveness and broad market prospects. According to data statistics, there are about one million kinds of looms in China, the proportion of shuttleless looms is still very low, and most of them are imported looms, and there is a large gap compared with the volume of the shuttle looms in 80% of the world’s advanced countries. With China’s accession to the WTO, in order to meet the challenges of economic globalization, the pace of technological transformation of textile enterprises has further accelerated. The technological transformation of textile industry in China has formed the trend of shuttleless looms instead of shuttle looms. In 2005, the import of jet looms in domestic textile enterprises accounted for about 50% of the total volume of shuttleless looms. From this we can see that the demand for air-jet looms is urgent in textile industry, and the market potential of air-jet looms is huge. According to the survey of the large and medium sized textile enterprises and the numerous private enterprises in the coastal areas, the annual demand for jet looms accounts for about 40% to 50% of the total demand for the newly added shuttleless looms, and the market prospects are very broad.
