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
Heavy 450-550 gr-sqm
Very heavy more than 550 gr-sqm (SMIT can weave towel more than 1500gr-sqm)
