Weaving Machine for Terry Towel Production

For Terry towel production SMIT considered to have a dedicated machines with specific technology by reed movement. 

Terry piles are constructed by using one series of weft threads and two series of warp threads; one for the ground and the other for the pile. The ground warp interlaces with the ground weft to form the ground cloth. This ground cloth holds the loops formed by the pile ends and allows the looped portion to project on the fabric surface.

The loops may be single sided (face) or double sided (face and back).

The looped structure is ideally suited to toweling purposes as the long, free floats of yarn are capable of readily wicking up large amounts of moisture.

Free-flight carbon composite ribbons without hook guides system provides the fastest weaving width change, high textile efficiency and top fabric quality even with the most delicate yarn fabrics. 

Classification of Terry towel fabric by weight:

Light: 250-350 gr/sqm

Medium 350-450gr-sqm

Heavy 450-550 gr-sqm

Very heavy more than 550 gr-sqm (SMIT can weave towel more than 1500gr-sqm)

The Dynamic Pile Control for pile formation has been equipped with the new Pile Tension Equalizer for the pile warp, granting quite an enhancement of loom productivity and a perfect pile warp evenness also in presence of very weak yarns such as from regenerated fibre.

Fabrics produced by utilizing high water absorbency fibers, yarns and weave structure may be defined as toweling fabrics.

The yarns used in toweling fabrics have more open structure which means more air space in the yarn body: these air spaces facilitate more water absorption by providing more space for the water.

Weave structures are designed to promote a high level of water absorbency:

the length of yarn float is maximized, the number of interlacing points is minimized in a unit area and the fabric structure is kept as open as possible.

There is a vast classification of toweling fabrics mainly divided into Plain toweling and Looped toweling fabrics.

Woven terry fabrics play a dominant role in the market of looped toweling because of their superior mechanical and functional properties, such as dimensional stability, softness and water absorbency.

The standard configuration machines:

  • 260, 290, 340, 360,380cm reed width
  • Jacquard or Dobby 12-16-20 lever
  • 6 weft feeders
  • Lower Beams 800 or 1000
  • Upper beam 800,1000,1250
  • GS980 F: Terry weaving machine.Excellent fabric quality in the widest cover factor range, no weft damage and high densities available, perfectly straight cloth line over the entire width.
    • Pile formation by “rocking reed”
    • High pile evenness
    • High weavebility of gentle pile yarns
    • Higher productivity and reliability
    • Very high pile: adjustable reed motion up to 24 mm
    • For each pile formation, both height and pile ratio are freely programmable.

GS980F: The best machine for the production of terry towel

SMIT GS980F excels in terms of performance: rugged structure and stiff drive mechanisms ensure high productivity and operational stability both in Dobby and Jacquard weaving machines.

SMIT GS980F terry towel weaving machine run up to 1550 M/Min and over 500 Rpm (260 cm) and weave spun yarns from 4 to 400 Tex, filament yarns from 10 to 3500 Den and fancy yarns up to 2 Nm.

Dynamic Pile Control is the distinguishing Smit system of pile formation by sley deferred motion (Rocking reed), with loose pick distance up to 24 mm, securing the gentlest treatment of warp yarns for a first-rate terry fabric.
